I'm probably going to get people's backs up here, but I'm sick, sore , and tired of looking at spelling mistakes, not just here, but all over the web.
Lense. Definately. ect.
For God's sake stop doing it! NOW !!

LOL! Easy tiger.
I'm lucky in that I've never had a problem spelling but some people do have dyslexia ..
That said, I do think it odd that on a photography site, people will call a lens a lense ..
nobody can spell anymore, or nobody bothers to try and spell anymore. faceybook has to be the worst for it.
one thing that bugs me, but probably shouldn't is your instead of you are/you're. whatever happened to you're?!
i must admit to not always using capitals but i like to think my spelling is excellent (that's what it said on my school report - 1988)
And then there are those, who use bad punctuation; such as a space between the end of a word and the comma.

Absolutely appalling. Ought to be shot.
 Warb!! Long time no chunter.
I only have one len for my SLR.
I have a spelling checker.
It came with my PC.
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss steaks aye can knot see.
Eye ran this poem threw it.
Your sure real glad two no.
Its very polished in its weigh,
My checker tolled me sew.
A checker is a blessing.
It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
And aides me when aye rime.
Each frays comes posed up on my screen
Eye trussed too bee a joule.
The checker pours o'er every word
To cheque sum spelling rule.
Bee fore a veiling checkers
Hour spelling mite decline,
And if we're laks oar have a laps,
We wood bee maid too wine.
Butt now bee cause my spelling
Is checked with such grate flare,
There are know faults with in my cite,
Of nun eye am a wear.
Now spelling does not phase me,
It does knot bring a tier.
My pay purrs awl due glad den
With wrapped words fare as hear.
To rite with care is quite a feet
Of witch won should be proud,
And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
Sew flaws are knot aloud.
Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays
Such soft wear four pea seas,
And why eye brake in two averse
Buy righting want too please.
Please don't get me started on spelling and punctuation or I may begin to whimper.
Good poem though!
Lol! @ 'chris.maddock'! (well lol at the poem anyway! )
Spelling correctly is a fairly modern thing. In days gone by people would spell in the same way that they spoke - in much the same way as chris.maddock's brilliant poem. Oh! and by the way, the apostrophe is something that is used by the British and very few others.
Incorrect spelling is not an indication of low intelligence, all it shows is that a person did not receive a good education and that was not always their fault.
I was a proof reader for the best part of my working life but poor spelling does not concern me unduly as some of the brightest and most successful people I know can't spell.
Quote: the apostrophe is something that is used by the British and very few others.
Now, now, it's not that exclusive: both Romanic and Germanic languages use it, so that's quite a few already, and I can probably think of a few more language groups that use it.

I bow to your greater knowledge.
Quote: but some people do have dyslexia
[rant on]and there's another thing - someone who is dyslexic is someone who has difficulty reading/writing/spelling. What is the difference between someone who has dyslexia and someone who can't read/write/spell?
Why does it have to have a special name?[rant off]
Grate pome chris.maddock.
The one that always makes me smile is when photographers on websites call themselves armatures, as in "I'm an armature" for example.
I guess they're trying to type amature instead of amateur, and then the spelling kicker checks in.
