    So. Old.

    However, some people don't seem to believe spelling is important judging by the atrocious spelling that *does* go on.

    yes but you dont always just swap two letters in the middle of your words

    what you have just typed is very easy to understand, its just when you get angry and you seem to hamfist the keyboard, more of a random experience than anything else
