Spellchecker.......am I just being OCD?

I am a stickler for spelling. I really don't like reading my own posts and finding spelling or grammatical errors. It probably has something to do with my self esteem issues and not wanting anyone to view me as less than an intelligent articulate person. I find myself re-reading posts, even after published, going back and editing them, spellchecking them, using the online dictionaries and thesaurus' in order to be correct. And yet, I do not find the need to be politically correct.....go figure.

I'm the same way. I can't stand the thought of publishing something with a spelling error.

I do exactly the same thing! I am constantly checking and re-checking my posts. I thought it was a control thing but I might have to think about the self esteem thing now.
