Let's keep this in proportion: the problem is not as horrible as it
might sound.  More often than not, this "auto-correction" feature is
very good, it fixes minor typos like exchanging letters, failure to
start a sentence from a capital letter, etc.  When it goes bad, you
can always insist on your spelling, and you can selectively turn off
some of the more "viral" correction types.
