Hear hear. The spell-check is so very annoying. It consistently replaces tech jargon and other words in my messages with ridiculous suggestions, and if I'm not paying attention, that "corrected" version will get sent out in emails and such.

I was close to filing a bug on radar.apple.com on this issue, but figured someone out there has probably already done this.

i guess filing a bug would not be appreciated by apple, since they did have the ability to switch off spell checking in 1.x and removed that option in 2.x. so they must be completely convinced that nobody ever would want to switch that thing off.

i think rather than switching it off completely, it would be even more useful to be able to set it to pessimistic rather than optimistic, but that would somehow compromise the claim that it works really well.
