    It did say unite. Someone changed it and added the last bit.

    It's not incorrect, though. Untie is a correctly spelled word. As in, "In order to avoid tripping, the geeks had to untie and retie their shoelaces after the bullies tied their shoelaces together."

    I just assumed you were actually warning geeks to check their shoelaces before getting up, just in case some bully tied them together.

    I have a binary solution after your comment, either A you're the most literal person I know or B you're taking the mickey....

    Either way, don't mind... just wondering..

    As for the actual answer, it's often a part of 1337 speak to do such things with words. You get a common misspelling and use it instead of the real word. That's why there's special characters in there... I'm reaching out..
