i will bump it to 0.2. i agree it can be annoying but overall it does more good than harm.

The error margin is now 0.2, it was 0.15.

Also, what is the max number of words you can have before it kicks in? I know that in posts with only 2 or 3 words and one of the words is not recognized, the post is allowed.

Well. I don't think it's working right. I just tried to post a list and it was rejected for 3 words being misspelled. (CG, SoC and Tulks were the words) it was the 2:08 AM EST post.

But I could be wrong. I really shouldn't be allowed to post at 1 am. xD

Yeah, I think you made it .02 maybe?

Its probably not implemented yet.

it'd be nice if user/character names and common CB abbreviations were omitted...

Many common abbreviations are ignored by the checker. Also, all player names, as long as you type the first 3 or 4 characters (I forget if it's 3 or 4), the work is ignored.

doesn't seem to count for names with spaces, e.g. Henk Bres
