I find this attitude from Olin strange as well. To me having the spell
checker turned on so that before sending an email, it gets checked for
spelling errors is a basic 'must do'. Occasionally errors do get through
from rushed punching of the 'Ignore' button, but to me it is a matter of
professional pride that for the most part at least the spelling is correct,
even if the grammar isn't.
