What's the law that says if you correct someone's spelling/grammar on the Internet, it is inevitable that you will make a typo?

<whispers> There's an apostrophe missing in the thread title. <runs away>

This is absolutely crazy. I've never seen someone use 'que' before. Now, tonight, I've read two threads where someone, in all seriousness, has used the word 'que' to mean 'cue'....I'm in the twilight zone.

Two apostrophes

Ha! I raise you 'wont' as in 'I wont to annoy you by spelling want phonetically.'

I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt and assuming it's a typo really.

Hold the front page! Kate's been wretching again. (I bet she feels retched)

Aww, a lot of personal favourites on here!

I love Chester Draws and Defiantly is particularly good.

I'm guilty of many typos myself but I honestly thought que was a trendy new abbreviation that I hadn't caught up with yet blush

I agree with the OP. I think it's discusting. grin

DS1 defiantly gets out of the wrong side of the bed every morning.

If you want to bag a dining table on ebay with little bidding competition, put 'dinning table' into the search engine. There are loads of them. Some people seem to think that it must be spelt dinning because there are two Ns in dinner.

Life is made that little bit sweeter if you read 'queue' as 'kweewee'.

PuffPants Sat 08-Dec-12 10:10:55

Has it already been said? Lose and loose? How can people get through their whole lives not knowing the difference? Don't get me started on your and you're...grrr.

And the past participle of to text is texted, not text!

AgentProvocateur Sat 08-Dec-12 10:20:37

You're all being rediculous!

This thread is keeping me on tenderhooks <obscure>

I know it's not the most obvious of words, but if you're unsure why not look it up? It comes from weaving, when fabric was stretched taut on 'tenters' by hooks, hence tenterhooks. Nothing to do with butchers. The etymology of some words is fascinating [geekface]

Smeggnog Sat 08-Dec-12 10:26:25

I've just seen 'wide birth' on another thread. Ouch!

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Sat 08-Dec-12 10:28:01

I love this thread.

I can't stand the cue que queue madness either.

And it's not pedantry. It's standards

saccrofolium Sat 08-Dec-12 10:45:47

Us mummy's should know how to rite.

My all time favourite mumsnet thicko moment was on a very serious thread about gender selection or something. Someone made a very reasoned post but in the middle of it she said 'uneffical'. I could sense the rest of the thread looking at this howler in a state of anguish and mirth but nobody said anything, presumably due to the seriousness of the thread. But I felt the mental equivalrent of hopping up and down and saying 'looook, looook'

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Sat 08-Dec-12 11:09:44

Oh and another one where a londoner mumsnetter ranted on about her local council, but spelled it cancel (cos that's how she says it)
