I think the problem is that the "post reply" button appears (to new members and to inattentive people like me) to be the button to "post the reply you have just written". Also, the "submit reply" button isn't visible if you don't scroll your screen down far enough.
Could I suggest that the "submit" button be put more prominently and for there to be a small message to say that hitting "submit" will submit your quick message and hitting "post reply" will bring up the full form?
I did think of asking that a pop up window appear asking if you really want the full form if you hit "post" by mistake, but that'll be going too far.
BTW this is my second draft of this message - I hit "Reset Form" instead of "Submit Reply"! Must...train...self..to...hit...correct...button!
XavierP is right, the problem is not the Spell Check button but that the 'post reply' button to the left of the box is so prominent; who's going to read the small print above? (And actually, the notification 'you can still click the post reply button' just makes me go 'so what?')
Maybe the prominent post reply button should be under the window*, with spell check and something like 'Reply form with editor' underneath.
* edit: and it should actually post the reply, too
