It's "fazed" not "phased", isn't it?

Yes it is.

Wasn't there a long thread on this somewhere?

I wanted to add something I saw today for the first time....

I don’t panda to her (re 3 year old's temper tantrums) Grin

Grin yes, I've seen that one too!

Phased seems to be used a lot on MN and I've seen it used in newspaper articles. I'm no grammar expert, but I am quite confident about spelling and the meaning of words. When an error is made often, I get a bit twitchy, as though I might be wrong after all!

I saw this used on MN today and someone apologetically corrected it later in the thread.
It does annoy me.
