Misspellings: An annoyance or serrious problem

I am getting sick of seeing people ragging on about misspellings to the point where I feel it has gotten out of hand. I belive the new policy should be people who submit new instructables should try their best to spell everything right and if someone does come across a misspelling to simply let it go. Anyone agree?

 Hey, here is a nifty idea, use Instructables built in spell check! By doing that, you can't ever misspell something again!

Was it irony or a simple mistake that serious is misspelled as "serrious" in the title of this forum post?
Umm, I believe "misspelled" has three s's, if I'm not misstaken. But, serriously...I have a sip of wine everytime I see a missspelling on this site. (kidding again)
o.0 If I missed the joke...my apologies :P But when I type missspelled with the third "s" -- Firefox and tinySpell yell at me :P
Yeah, I just downloaded Firefox 2.0.1, and tried it myself. That is pretty cool. And, it even works on Windows 98 SE (or is that giving away too much information?). But, it doesn't separate the whiners from the winers yet. ;>)

Seriously, I can't tell. The misspellings in the poster almost have to have been intentional. Maybe it's like one of those "find all the things wrong with this picture" games. I see two misspellings in the picture. Anyone else?

That picture was pretty funny. I remember seeing that image in freshman history years ago and I cracked up because it was such cheap propaganda. Just FYI (fo y'alls information!), Firefox 2.0 comes with a spellchecker - helpful for those people who suck at spelling or do not speak English as a first language.

I use Firefox almost exclusively. In fact, it just caught me misspelling "exclusively"
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ (and it's free!)
It's also a good idea from a security perspective. IE is an accident waiting to happen.
