Misused words function

I don’t think the ‘Misused Words’ function is working right. Attached is an image. Tell me if I’m right or wrong.

The misused words check highlights any instance of a potentially misused or mis-spelled pair of words. It doesn’t check the rightness or wrongness of the use case – that’s up to you. While the “through/threw” example you highlighted is obvious to most, other pairs are often less obvious to many: “effect/affect” for example.

Okay, Darren. I’ll remember next time I use it. :nerd_face:
