Your spellchecker is showing its ignorance. Dissector can only have an 'or' ending.

I concur.  afro

There is nothing worse than a confused Spellcheck. -- I get (no spelling suggestions), all the time, which is remarkably unhelpful. Its red zigzag underline gets quite irate, sometimes. You'd think it would get used to it.  rolleyes

That's because 'discusser' isn't a word. However, if it were, it would have that spelling.  Wink

My dictionary has discusser in it.

That said, when I bought the dirctionary it never had the letter S in it at all, so it may not be the world's greatest dictionary (the shop did exchange it for a whole 26 letter one).
