Repent, or else...

I was being facetious.

Youíre actually wrong, my sentence was grammatically correct.

I was referring to the spelling and grammar as one unit, one flaw in the article: the English. AKA a compound noun. Now try this sentence:

1) The spelling is atrocious
2) The spelling are atrocious

Where do I go to get my reputation back??

Indeed, grammar and spelling can each be atrocious on its (notice I said 'its' and not 'their'!  ;D ) own.  This means that grammar and spelling ARE atrocious.  I hear that. 
On the other hand, if Microsoft Office can have a 'Grammar and Spelling checker' (not 'checkers') then I vote @S209 should be vindicated.  :D

I don't think that in your usage spelling and grammar is a compound noun, as opposed to in my issue where it is.
