Fighting the Spell Checker

Yet again, the spell checker is fighting me with my attempt at discourse. In my desire to communicate, I am trying to use several big words that it knows I am unable to spell correctly. I know people whose lips curl into a sneer when someone tries to use big words that they are not accustomed to and either mispronounces them or gets their meaning wrong, but if you are seeking to express yourself, all words should be available, and if you accidentally use them incorrectly, why is it such as big deal? We, all of us, learn in the course of our lives, and it’s a rare person who knows every word in the English language, never mind their meanings.
