Swype Benefits Defeated by User Dictionary

    Google programmers, come out of your bunkers and hear ye!

    Swype is brilliant, but any advantages in speed are completely defeated by the idiotic fact that the user dictionary automatically memorizes new words, with no user defined ability to disable this feature, or decline to add a given word. It automatically adds every misspelling, every acronym, and every arcane (use it once and never again) word or piece of slang.

    So instead of being able to cruise along using swype, the user has to keep stopping to delete words.

    It's simple: Fix it so we can either disable the automatic memorization altogether, or so a window pops up if we type and hit space after an unknown word, defaulted not to add it, but giving us a little plus sign which lets us add it if we choose. If we ignore it and keep typing, it's not added. And it won't slow us down.

    Google people, you're brilliant, but it's always three steps forward two steps back for you because you just don't know how to test your own design features because you're too busy to have friends (guessing).

    ....Swype isn't made by Google. It's a private company making their own software....
