Interesting: maybe.  Worth it: no.  If your builders can't spell, what
the hell are they doing writing areas?  I realize that, that is hardly
non-native English speaking person friendly; but on most MUDs, I see a
lot of builders just sitting around, not doing anything.  It seems to
me that with 3 or 4 builders just sitting around doing nothing until
they think of an area, they can bother themselves helping correct
spelling/grammar/typographical errors in other areas.  And, for the
creative builder that just doesn't have a grasp on spelling, a real
dictionary is probably infinitely more helpful.

As always, playing the Devil's advocate,
