You are absolutely right to be wary of spell checkers. The cherry tree example seems also to illustrate a related problem - that of the incompletely set up speech-to-text program. I'm sure that I'm seeing more and more of this sort of thing, especially in emails. And emails don't matter, of course, do they? Just dictate, spell check and hit send. Never mind that the message is unintelligible.
