"And there isn't a spell-check in the world that would catch it."

That used to be an editor's job, but they've become extinct. Today, especially in online publications, miscues like that are shrugged off with "well, you know what I meant", and in some circles are even considered hip.
The next time someone uses a lower case i for the first person singular in an online forum, correct them and see what happens.
