Add wordcount to spell check

Add wordcount to spell check

Short, concise description of the idea
Add word count to spell check.

Full description of the idea
I think you all get the idea. It would be nice to see how many words I've written in a given entry when I spell check it. I don't think this is a huge change or amazingly important (hence the sparse suggestion post) but I hate having to either cut and paste my entry into another program.

An ordered list of benefits
  • -Being able to see how many words I've written
  • -Fandom geeks will feel happy knowing they can accurately say how many words they wrote for a post, and everyone loves happy fandom members!

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • -People might freak out about change?

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • I know there are sites like this one that use javascript to count words, though I don't know if you could just put it into the current spell check feature. Also, we would have to decide where it would go and if it would be automatic (some people might be touchy about having their words counted!), though automatic seems easiest to me.
