Spellcheck for vandals

I enjoy reading graffitti; I sometimes think there are hidden messages written on the walls if only you care to look (like the day I was thinking about making a big decision and I saw OSE (dare) written on 5 different walls).  It's often beautiful, usually philosophical and almost always contains spelling or grammar mistakes, which reassures me that even French people have trouble writing French correctly.  And best of all, there's always someone who comes along with a shinier paint to correct the mistakes. 
The Robin des Bois of the grammar world...
