    Promoting correct spelling and grammar on the internet is akin to preaching abstinence at a brothel.

    That's just one of many that drives me nuts. Yous is another, two, too, and to being used wrongly. thier? gaaak! such basic words

    Sad thing is, even teachers can't spell properly these days, so how can they teach students proper spelling? I wouldn't last long as a teacher because parents would be up in arms with all my RED X's on their dear offspring's work.

    Haha I can spell quite well, but my typing abilities are much less of a thing to brag about.

    I posted the same link on Facebook a couple of weeks ago after my sister sent me the link to The Oatmeal. One of the people on my friend's list sent me a message asking if it was directed at them. It wasn't lol.

    I definately am one who says unthaw, I got it from my parents and grandparents. I know it is the wrong word to say but I still have the habit.

    Reading that sounds wrong to me even though it is right haha. I just can't get out of my habit of saying it.
