    The stupid thing changes every 10th word even after I finish typing. This makes half of what I say sound like its typed by a rabid drunken monkey.

    Sheesh !!

    Not to mention the fact that for whatever reason, it also butchered my triple threat earthworm feeding video. I almost didn't upload it because its C- and that's being charitable.

    It doesn't even seem to understand basic English grammar.

    You would love the galaxy s9, spell check doesn't interfere very much.

    Maybe that's why they did it.

    The thing changes it back to what's wrong after you edit it when you push send and you have to edit 3 or 4 times to make it stick.

    I'd just assumed that you employed a rabid drunken monkey to type your posts for you, or that you were in fact a rabid drunken monkey yourself and often hacked into unsuspecting tarantula keepers accounts! ;)

    Some things sure come out that way with that spell checker. Even when you edit the post, it'll try to change it back or into something even worse.

    Google swipe typing doesn't work if you do that.
