    Oh, I have another one.

    People who say they are having their "Prostrate" checked, or that they know someone who has "prostrate" cancer.

    I didn't know you could get cancer of laying stretched out face down.

    It worries me when ordinary words are purposely misspelt to be used as brand names or similar, and people then mistake the corrupted version for the actual word!

    For example, the brand "Travisty". The brand was created by a guy called Travis so fair enough, clever play on words, but how many people now actually think that this is how you spell it because they have had more exposure to the brand name than to the actual word? It really is a travesty!

    Another example I saw just the other day on BH.. the use of "Ludacris" to describe something as ridiculous or laughable . Ludacris is.. a rapper I think? The word is "ludicrous".

    Maybe it's ludicrous that these things bother me so much

    Oh I don't mind me a bit of "meh"! Sometimes it just sums my feelings up perfectly.

    And, erm... *loses

    Meh and blah. Two legitimate ways of expressing how I'm feeling.

    Spelling lose incorrectly is one of my pet hates.

    I don't mind 'meh', as a PP said, it can be the perfect way to explain a feeling.

    This is one thread that you want to make sure your spelling is perfect before you come in to complain about spelling!
