Grammar and spell checker will definitely improve the discussions or discourse on TED Conversations.

"Grammar, regardless of the country or the language, is the foundation for communication -- the better the grammar, the clearer the message, the more likelihood of understanding the message's intent and meaning. That is what communication is all about. Recent national and international events make it clear that in the United States today we are lacking in the quality of communication that leads to understanding our fellow citizens and the people of other countries -- and this at a time when better understanding at home and abroad is so necessary."

    May 15 2014: "Because so many people take good writing skills lightly, people can really gain the upper hand at school, on the job and elsewhere by using correct words, both in spelling and grammar. Teachers are very impressed with students who take the time to correct their errors and turn in papers with great grammar and spelling. Employers appreciate a worker who writes papers without the common errors in grammar and spelling. It's a good feeling to know that by using a spelling and grammar checker, more doors are open to a brighter future."

    "Having good grammar and spelling skills can make a big difference on the job. People don't usually spend enough time proofreading their work, which often backfires on them. Oftentimes, they may not know the damage that comes about by using poor grammar and spelling. However, the bottom line is that others will have negative feelings about them and their company if their words are not used correctly. People will be more likely to succeed at their jobs if they use good spelling and grammar skills. This can make it more likely for them to receive promotions and a raise from their employers."
