Irony in Spell Check. There is a "posting" tab on the blogger web page for those who want to post on a particular blog, and have "rights" to do so. From that tab, one clicks on the "Create New Post" subtab. The blogger is then presented with a box in which to type his or her post.

The "Create New Post" box has a little tool bar at the top. Among the tools is a spell check.

The spell check does not recognize "blog" as a word and suggests that it be replaced with "bloc". It does not recognize "blogger" and wants to replace it with "blocker".

This is one of life's great, but probably unrecognized, ironies, and I thought I would point it out.
