    I really don't understand how you can get this one wrong - it is named after its function!
    Maybe it's a close one to deliver?!

    I wonder if this is sometimes just a typo or autocorrect though? I know I did this on Facebook recently, and my understanding of then/than is quite sound.

    Auto correct is so annoying...since when I have ever wanted to say 'puck' instead of 'pick'!!!! I always think of the kiwi accent when this happens lol

    Ah yeah it could be, I always forget about autocorrect!

    I just saw someone write "as a posed" instead of "as opposed" now that can't be autocorrect!
