Why is it that incorrect spelling is not underlined with red dots in the subject line if you spell something incorrectly?

If I spill something on my self the bot won't notice, however if I fail to enunciate something, it still won't. Bots aren't your aunt.

In iOS a typo is underlined in Red in both subject and text body.

Get Grammarly for Safari and you will get those features in the Text Box and you start typing. This is on my iMac. I don't text much from my iPhone Xr.

And, there I was hoping for a good rant on "its" versus "it's"

Hint: "its" is a possessive pronoun - like his and hers. "it's" is a contraction for "it is" - like "he's" and "she's"

Chrome gives me notification of my speeling earors, even the title. Sometimes I'm typing too fast to notice it.

Fortunately the phorum software allows title editing..

I've noticed that, too.

Is it a feature or a bug?

Of course the underlining with red dots hasn't stopped me from making spelling errors in the body so I don't know if it'd do anything for me in the subject line.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Type the doubtful word in the body first, then copy into the 'Subject:'.

Yeah, I do that when I'm not sure, but sometimes when you've just got a case of fumble fingers, you don't realize that you've made a mistake.
