I submitted an article to Slashdot today and it was accepted! Within a few hours, it collected over 200 comments.
My submission was based on an above-the-fold, front-page article in today's Seattle Post-Intelligencer on a marketing professor's attempt to get Microsoft to improve the grammar checker found in Microsoft Word.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of the grammar checker. I use Microsoft Word to edit my e-mail messages and have the grammar checker flagging grammar and style. The only options I have turned off are "Use of first person", "Passive Sentences", and "Contractions". I wish I could use the editor for these blogging posts (I know I can via various tools, but it's slows down the process and I blog less often).
Todd Bishop of the Seattle PI also blogged about it as well as including a humorous graphic.
