Not only that, but the current trend to spell according to sound, ignoring   
meaning, can really slow down one's comprehension at times, to be polite.   
Recently, a short thread had a  collection of misspellings that made it   
downright difficult to understand the third or fourth message, all   
previous ones quoted. I'm refraining from citing details, because it's   
hard not to rant, save that there was real confusion among "to", "too",   
and "two", among other show stoppers.
