    Ignore them, because they obviously don't understand the history and progression of the language. If they understood, then I don't believe that they would be so uptight about spelling. Our spelling system is archaic and not up to date regarding pronunciation. There was something called the Great Vowel Shift, but the old spellings were retained. Also, the English language contains many redundant letters. In early modern English, there was no spelling standard, and it didn't matter. It still doesn't matter, and these so-called "grammarians" think they know it all, they only know a tiny piece of what is going on in the language, and they can't put it together to see the big picture. Language is ALWAYS changing. Get over it spell checkers. (by the way, I have won many spelling bees in my life)

    Bet you put more effort into mispelling words, trying to prove a point than actually spelling it right. Maybe you should take some pointers that were obviously given to and make a teeny, tiny effort to spell words properly. No wonder the world thinks Americans are dumb...we aren't. Make our country proud and man up.

    Hmmm....

    As a multilingual English Teacher I must agree with SpookySickness above.

    Your grammar and syntax suck as much as your spelling.

    What about SAD P,E,A,P,L,E?

    That is truly sad!

    There is no A in PEOPLE.

    Your Answers profile says you are a college student? Wow!

    "well siad" wet405?

    Sigh!

    Somewhere a teacher is crying.

    It's a sad commentary on our times.

    Yahoo Answers even has 'spell check'!

    It's not just your spelling that's poor. Your syntax is godawful.
