Dear Chrome

Oh, Chrome, I love thee, but you really need to get your shit together on some things.

One major thing that bothers me is that you don’t know how to spell certain words.  It may seem like a small thing to have an issue with, and I guess that if you don’t use those words that it wouldn’t be a big deal.  Of course, people with blogs, i.e. me, might actually need to use those words, so you need to learn them.

One of the words you don’t know is rheumatologist.  Every single time I talk about mine, you throw up that ugly red squiggle.  It’s quite annoying because I know that I’ve spelled the word correctly.

Another is gastroenterologist.  Again, I know I’ve spelled it right, but the dreaded red squiggle comes up and has me doubting my ability to spell.  I don’t like doubting that ability.

Now, while I don’t like the dude, I also find it unacceptable that the annoying Prick Rick Santorum’s last name always triggers a squiggle.  I know that he’s a jerk and that he doesn’t deserve to be acknowledged, but he is (technically) an important figure in current events.  It would make sense if his last name were added to your dictionary.

Of course, I know how to add the names to the dictionary, but I shouldn’t have to.  These are words that could be used by just about anyone, except maybe Santorum, who makes it a point to tell us how much he hates science and men.  These are words that some smartypants that works with the Chrome project should add to the dictionary.

P.S. – It’s quite odd that you can’t get real words like rheumatologist and gastroenterologist into your dictionary, but pseudo-word smartypants is there.  Clearly, you have your priorities totally screwed up.
