Can you take this personal argument off the list, please?

It is not a personal argument. It is a matter of principal

The way you are presenting this and attacking the author and the work
is not a matter of principle.  You may delude yourself into thinking
it is, but your tone and words are extremely personal.

You are wrong about what constitutes plagiarism, and this is now
completely off topic.

Taking someone's work without giving attribution for it is plagiarism.

Not at all.  From Bouvier's Law Dictionary (1816):

PLAGIARISM. The act of appropriating the ideas and language of another, and
  passing them for one's own.
       2. When this amounts to piracy the party who has been guilty of it will
  be enjoined, when the original author has a copyright. Vide Copyright;
  Piracy; Quotation; Pard. Dr. Com. n. 169.

Compiling a list of words does not in any way, shape or form
constitute plagiarism.


That is the minor point about this miserable excuse of a spell checker.

This is not a matter of principle, it is your opinion, strongly worded
and quite offensive.

If you cannot tell the difference between a reasonable discussion and
a personal attack, perhaps you should find another place to rant.

Even if you have reasonable points, which I believe you do, your
presentation is offensive.

Thank you.

You're not welcome.

With that attitude, I suspect you are becoming less so here than you might like.

Back up, take a breath, and use rational, persuasive language instead
of insults.  You will do much better.
