Native speakers perhaps generally do less mistakes
(...or?). My general attitude is I, and everyone else,
should learn how to spell and type. But I also know
mistakes happen just the same and I don't want to send
posts with that kind of mistakes if that can be
avoided, that would be disrespectful. So it is a
conflict there which ispell won. I wonder though if
ispell "conserves" mistakes and typos that you
habitually do, because you subconsciously
(...correctly spelled?) - you are too relaxed because
you know ispell is there to help you. If so, still, I
think ispell does this less than flyspell because then
you are in the middle of typing so you want minimal
time spent thinking about what word went wrong and
why, so perhaps you can type it correct the next time
it comes up. In general I'm happy with ispell, I only
think the dictionary should be much wider in scope.
