The number is probably slowly rising with the prevalence of horrible spelling online. the first time I got that I didn't even notice till I was halfway through.

i'm somewhat dyslectic so that's the sort of thing i'd write when not paying to much attention... wel not really, but a couple of words would look like that, and i wouldn't spot them in a milion years... i suppose my posts illustrat that pretty well.

i find that i indeed recoughnise words by the way they look as a whole rather than by putting together all the individual letters... at school while learing to read i had all sorts of problems with simple short words, while i could read difficult long ones without problems once i'd heard them ones... i just connected the unique "image" of that word to the the sound. the short ones all looked the same. also while reading i'd "fill in" the words based on the context with words i knew that looked similar that would fit the sentence... just to be able to keep reading at a normal pace... needles to say this laid to some hillarious moments, and annoyed teachers as they assumed i was makeing fun of them or something....

while typeing if i think ahead of the next word while typeing the one before the firts letter of the second word sometimes ends up being the last of the first... fortunately computers make it easy to fix the most apparent mistakes.

personally i think language should always be about communication in the first place.... if the message gets acoss.... mission accomplished...
unfortunately some people automatically assume you're dumb if you can't write perfectly.

I can read it
I've read something about this before and I really thought it was cool.
also ^^^^ yeah that sums it up pretty well about not spelling right.
