Is there a problem here?  

{ Spell Check | My Grammar } Bug #5,384,439,201,264,785,965

Sending out an email in Lotus Notes triggers a spell check process. During this process, I was warned of the following "issue":



Maybe it is my grammar that is rusty; perhaps this sentence structure isn't "legal". I'm inclined to believe that I'm right.

Regardless, it isn't a spelling error. So why am I being told that it is?

"Setup" should be "set up" in this context.

@Michael,

R speling erorz realy 'bugs' if teh meening comes acros? Has not the internet removed the constraints of traditional/proper spelling/grammar, thus creating a new kind of context that requires no adherence to antiquated standards?

But I'm being argumentative, defensive, and pedantic. You are absolutely correct about my spelling mistake. You are already better than the spell checker in my Lotus Notes installation.

Now...any ideas about "I? I"?

It clearly says, "Repeated word." You wrote "I" twice in a row with no words (just punctuation) between. I've seen this kind of thing before in other softwarew and agree that they should consider punctuation as a delimiter.
