    LOL... I think the lose/loose mixup is my number one pet peeve. And thankfully, yes, most of the people on this forum are pretty literate, so you definitely don't see it as much here!

    I mix up my its/it's sometimes though... I usually catch it but for some reason my fingers go automatically to the wrong one most of the time! :-)

    And Beefy... agree on the iphone. I turned my autospell off. It was changing half of my text to the incorrect stuff... drove me nuttier than usual!

    Tooround, it's part of the engineer in me, as well as being on the spelling team/ in the top 6 of the spelling bee for *quickly counts on fingers* 8 years. 8 years of technical/ dissection papers didn't help.
