[wp-hackers] Putting the P in WordPress

I'm still being amazed by how a well meant effort to correct a common
spelling mistake can be turned into a .... (insert your favourite
conspiracy theory here).
Grammatically "WordPress" is a name and "Wordpress" is the misspelled
form of it. And that's in any language. You wouldn't type "Los angeles"
or "San francisco", would you? Correcting the spelling _does not_ change
the content or edit your post.
And yes, unfortunately there isn't more straightforward way of
correcting that spelling. It could be added to the TinyMCE dictionary
(would need a fair bit of coding since it uses Google spell by default
but can use aspell/pspell on the server too). The problem is that most
people usually use the browser's build-in spellchecker and there's no
way of adding this in there.
