    I'm seen a bunch of unusual spellings for gendered pronouns/terms nowadays too (womon, etc.), I just can't remember the new singular forms I have seen elsewhere.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Phew.

    Unless you are a perfectionist. It isn't really a big deal. Also apparently a small percentage of people can not read this. (Unable to find the actual statistics at the moment though, sorry)

    What happens if the posters are too sleepy to spell correctly, and the mods are too busy resolving other issues? There needs to be some motivation to make this work. Each poster needs to submit credit card info and each mod gets paid 5 cents per wrong letter in all the misspellings.

    I'm sure it could be set up so only those who misspell words would have their info sold to spammers.

    The worst one I ever saw was "wemon." Sounds like lemon or demon.

    On spelling, lighten up....

    There are a fair few people using English as a second or third language... and as for myself I'm dyslexic... Yes it wouold be nice to have threat titles rectified but not posts

    How would you cope with real English v's American....? Being contentious...

    And the lass who wants to fine people for spelling mistakes... I think it' indicates your a J type
