Is "alright" all right?

In formal, edited writing, when is it correct to use alright as one word? Here’s a little tip: Never. Note, I said formal, edited writing (term paper, academic article, essay, etc.). And don’t give me “Spell Check didn’t underline it.” Spell Check doesn’t underline it when you type, “I walked along way home,” either.

Extra Credit:  Come and tell me this rule.
