The joy of the Spellchecker

The IT guy on a client site sent an e-mail to me, copied to most of his own management, where he used the words "pay run" several times. Unfortunately for him the spell checker on their e-mail system replaced the phrase with the word "paranoias" ... and he didn't notice before it got sent out. I'm only seeing the edge of all the flack on this but the manager of the system said "When I flipped my lid at the use of the word "paranoias" you explained that the spell checker had changed "payruns" to the offending term."

Oh Microsoft, what power lies in the little things of life.
