What are some misspellings that annoy you the most? Mine would probably be "noone" (no one) because I don't get how some people actually think this is the correct spelling even though it looks so obviously wrong.

So what misspelling annoys you the most?

Poll will be posted.

A friend of mine says "Noone (Pronounced as noon) cares" instead of "No one cares", because he hates it so much. Its actually pretty funny.

When someone says loose instead of lose.


This one is pretty bad.

I still feel your/you're is the worst. Everyone does it. EVERYONE. It pisses me off.

Another one is instead of alright, "aight". Seriously. Why say that? Why type that? That's like... black dialect or some sort of Louisiana-New Orleans-esque bs talk and everyone who says it is white as white could be. "Aight".

I'll think of more and post them.

Didn't even take the poll because misspellings piss me off too much. I don't brag about my intelligence, but after years of honors and Advance Placement English I've learned to speak (and type) correctly. This texting-talk is nonsensical in every way. My generation blows, haha.

The only times I misuse and mispronounce things are when I'm messing around online like the rest of us (saying teh, meh, muh, internetz, things of that nature). There's messing around and then there's talking like "Little Wayne." *shiver*

"should of" instead of "should have" (happens with "could" and "would" too, of course.)

those piss me off more than anything.

#24
I picked other, because they all drive me ****ing crazy. Most of those I would consider to be improper diction, and not spelling, though.
#25
Most of them I find annoying.

However, being Canadian, a lot of my American friends constantly say I'm spelling some words wrong. Canada has this funny thing about putting "U" in between some "O's" and "R's"

Examples:
Flavour
Colour
Favour
Labour


That's just how Canucks do it.
#26
Oh, and don't forget things like "me and you" and all of those variants along with the 3rd comma (Megan, Joe, and I). Gotta add that 3rd comma....

I believe that the British also use that system of language? I'm pretty sure because a lot of the poetry and whatnot I read sometimes uses that particular type of grammour

I hear you man. Whenever I see those words with a u it just looks weird. also it really makes my blood boil if a spell check tells me I'm wrong when I spell words as such.

I wonder is Dallas Green gets pissed when his american fans spell it city and color

Now that you meant language differences in countries isn't it weird how americans spell certain words that we end in 're' with 'er', even though that's the way it sounds? For example - centre, metre, sabre, theatre..

Brits, Aussies and Kiwis all do that too.

EDIT: ^ 're' is more correct, even if phonetically it might be weird.

Which reminds me of another one that bugs me. Grammer instead of grammar. It's pretty sad if you can't even spell grammar And then there's the classic masterbate instead of masturbate.

I never understood why we changed it. Perhaps it was a Revolutionary War thing? Or it could have been laziness over the years (like how "palm" and "almond" are actually pronounced more like "pam" and "ahmond") - I know it's weird, but that was how they were probably first pronounced

I honestly don't care. If I can understand what they're saying then why should it matter?

It's just the internet, not a literacy exam.

Its only correct if that's how you're country does it. In America "er" is correct and "re" is wrong, and vice versa in the rest of the English speaking world. We like to be different.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

That's not your entire country. That's a dialect of your region... most people here pronounce the l's in palm and almond such as myself.

Because it's incorrect usage of the language, which makes the person using it look stupid and uneducated. That, and the fact that most of us spent years learning the proper ways to speak and type with correct spelling and grammar, and it bothers us for people to misuse the language; to me, however, it's just a minor pet peeve. It just frankly annoys me.
