It's more a typing thing than a spelling thing though - I remember reading an article ages ago about the mistakes our fingers make with double letters even though we know how to spell. I, for example, cannot type well without checking - it most often comes out as 'weel'.

I agree. I might go further than wrapping duct tape around someone's hands if I was sure there would be no consequences grin

OP - do you mean Duck Tape (which is an American brand of gaffer tape) as opposed to 'duct tape' which just doesn't exist ?

Oooh eerr misses - this is pedants' corner after all...

How about 'Ups'? - popular in some quarters of textuality? wink

I'm sure i've seen Duct Tape somewhere.

YASNBU It's not hard is it? My xp used to write in in emails and texts. He is an ex.

Duct tape is good for verucca, according to an earlier post. What is it anyway? <digresses>

MiniMonty I love it when I discover that I have been getting something wrong and am corrected... I am a true pedant .... but in this case, I think duct tape DOES exist :
