Spell Check is an interesting thing. Upon it's first debut, people criticized it for "allowing people to have bad grammar/spelling/punctuation". Some thought it would influence people to not care how they speak, because Spell Check would fix it for them. So they don't have to think for themselves anymore.

That may have been true initially. But in this day and age with Facebook and news feeds displaying thousands of peoples ignorance, your mind can't help but subconsciously allow some of that bad information to seep in. The mind is such a sponge. It's great and terrible at the same time. When you see the word "definitely" spelled with an "A" countless times a day, eventually you start questioning yourself. And then it becomes you. You may not even be trying to read all of these things. But if your eyes see it, the brain processes it whether we think we are taking in the information or not.
I am a far worse speller and my vocabulary has been compromised and I truly believe facebook people are to blame. I was doing just fine before I started a facebook and began reading all kinds of stupidity on a daily basis. It inspires me to read great literature to try and combat it. But it may very well be futile.
Spell Check is that little annoying asshole who doesn't care about smacking you in the face and telling you when you are wrong. You then see it correctly and you start remembering the obvious.
Can we bring it back? lol
P.S. This all sounds a bit melodramatic, but I'm actually quite serious. I really believe that the mind soaks up this bad information that our Facebook and other social networking sites friends display rather frequently. Perhaps they are living examples of our failed education system. But I've been out of school for several years! And I happen to be a lover of words/vocab/spelling/and over all english. So it irks me when I make countless of ignorant and obvious mistakes.
