I commonly spell check myself by simply using Google. I paste my version of a word in their search box, then click search. Seconds later I see the definition of my word as the #1 result, or a link beginning with “Did you mean ….” that suggests the correct spelling of my search entry.
Now that Urban Dictionary is authoritative, and Google finds results for my horribly mis-spelled entry .. my beloved “Did you mean …” has almost vanished!
Dear Google – please adjust your code so that my queries that result in Urban Dictionary being the top result also result in a “Did you mean …” , else I’m forced to use conventional spell-checking means .. what fun is that?!
