It’s not foolproof

A spell-checker is great for finding some egregious spelling errors, but it wouldn’t find every mistake. For example, it won’t find two words that really should be combined into one word. Even if the writers and editors for Yahoo! Shine used a spell-checker (and they clearly don’t), this mistake would not have been flagged:

fool proof shine

Spell-checkers are great; but they’re not foolproof.
