Laurel Lammers of Microsoft Word Marketing writes in regard to our article "CompuBigotry" in TidBITS-122:

To Gann Matsuda and all others concerned about the Microsoft Word Speller:

This is an unfortunate coincidence in the suggestion algorithm and does not represent any intention on the part of Microsoft or the outside vendor to offend anyone. We apologize for any offense taken.
