You're not saying Nowitzky is a word people should know how to spell, are you? Smiley Tongue lol

my biggest beef is when people don't know phrases commonly used...

like when someone says "Do you half to ask me that?" or something crazy like that

Or when people use "are" instead of "our".  Improper pronounciation is a big factor in that one.  Too many words get pronounced incorrectly.

I remember always finding spelling mistakes in Pokemon books..  Yes, I read Pokemon books Smiley Tongue

Or were they supposed to be there?  Because there were literally atleast 1 really obvious mistake per book Smiley Tongue

Dr. Gonzo: Shoot it.

If you know what to look for, you can find errors in about any published source. I have found several errors in a psychology text a couple semesters ago. And according to my Micro professor, our text has numerous errors.
