    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!

    I moderate football forums. Probably the same basic crowd.

    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.
