I do, grudgingly. Usually, the damn thing is wrong and I am right (e.g.
it thinks there is a sentence fragment or singular/plural mismatch which
is not actually there). Occasionally, the sentence could go either my
way or the checker's way, and in that case I do sometimes agree with the
checker. Rarely, it catches a typo that made it through the spell
checker (a.k.a. "typo checker") because the typo was a real word.
