I wish I could turn off the predictive spell checking features too. I am a
lousy typist, make a lot of dyslexic mistakes, use backspace a lot and
spend more time trying to fix wrong guesses by the checker.   Too much
predicting and guessing what I'm thinking. I liked it better when it just
underlined what it thought was wrong and then I could go back and fix it
with control-drag. ANNOYING.

And I don't appreciate the search fields that do that guessing too. I'd
rather complete my request and hit return, rather that suffer the delays
that occur.  It seems to be de rigueur - the hip thing these days and I
hate it. Again these thing should be options not forced on the users.
