Microsoft Word Fail

Can anyone spot the problem with Word's built-in suggestions, here?



Maybe this is why some of my students are so f&#!ing illiterate.

That context menu isn't from any recent version of MS Word.

Word 2007's spell check suggests level-headed and the grammar checker is happy with that.

Well, maybe if Word 2007's interface wasn't infuriatingly counterintuitive, I would upgrade. In the meantime I'm happy to use an actual dictionary and largely ignore the often wrong grammar checker.
