now since 2.2 we have the ability to turn off auto-correct without hacks. the problem with this is that these forums are already bad enough with people not knowing how to type and now well see more and more errors on the internet. i can always tell when someone doesnt have auto-correct on because they type like this: "so thr other dsy i was at rhe store ans i couldnt beleive how muxh money it wqs for a new itouch!" i wish apple forced people to have auto-correction for english because it makes the internet a little bit cleaner and everyone sounds a little bit smarter with it on. by the way, posting this without auto-correct was pretty hard and slow. ugh. on the positive side, spending enough time with auto-correction off will probably train you to type more accurately. hmm.
