Which side of the political spectrum had a field day when a certain Republican spelled potato as potatoe (which a large part of the English speaking world does)

As an engineer and any time the spelling Nazis come out of the woodwork and tells me I spelled something wrong, I simple point out no one every died due to a misplaced letter, now misplacing a decimal in an engineering calculation can kill people, so let me check your math for mistake. This usually shuts up the Spelling Nazis.

The best part of misspelling thing it has been proven many time over most people can figure out what someone is saying even with gross spelling mistake, the same is not true with math.

You know it grated on almost every nerve I have reading the above, which I hope was purposeful.

Oh...and by the way:

AND

https://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/11/h...e-you-bet.html

So....misspelling something can kill someone. So there Mr. Engineer. Choo-choo.

I'm sure if I spelled debit as debt on our financial statements, the SEC would quickly note my error....
