A tag-searhc Pony

Sometimes people misspell their tags on posts. An example: this old post of mine which I tagged with bobbygentry instead of bobbiegentry. (I’ve since fixed this.) Right now, when you search by tag you get back a list of matching tags and tags that contain your search as a substring. I think it would be helpful if we also returned a list of results that have similar spellings in case the post you’re trying to find has a tag typo.

Typos shall not stand!

Pony request: In an effort to save people from their own mistakes how about an extremely minimal editing ability for comments? [more inside]

Missing an "L"

The Challenger writeup has a leading leading with "sipped the surly bonds of earth" - can we get a change to "slipped"?

Always. ALWAYS Filter.

Matt, I have waited several hours for you to fix it, but the song parody you linked to in the Blue Sidebar is titled "Thou Shalt Always Filter", not "Thou Shalt Not Filter". And it is totally awesome... When I say “end” thou shalt not say “well”. When I say “Wen” thou shalt not say “dell”.

"Others" Bug

The word 'others' on the 'saved as favorites' pages makes no sense and drives me batty. '2 others saved as a favorite' indicates that there is a third person. That's what the word 'others' means. Suggestion: change 'others' to 'users' or 'people' or 'assholes' or any word that is not confusing and inaccurate in that context.

Minor Quibble

minor grammar quibble! when posting a link, this:

"The URL you entered was not found in previous threads, though you may want to check the search page for duplicates, just to be sure"

...should end with a period. bit you know that already.

Please fix my spelling mistake

Hey Matt: I have egg on my face. Would it be possible for you to fix my stupid spelling mistake? Or just delete the thread. I'm really sorry.
