The Spelling Challenge
After seeing several threads in which people bitch and whine about negative rep, I figured the forum could use a thread about rep that's of a different, more positive nature for a change.

Here's the deal: If you can find a spelling error in one of my posts (everything from 2014 onwards), you receive +1 positive rep, up to a total of +3.

Ready? Set. Go!

Laugh out load

Improper application of the ellipsis in this post resulted in the word "see" being misspelled because you failed to leave a space between "see" and the ellipsis but created a space between the ellipsis and the following word of "improper."

Since you left a space between the ellipsis and "improper," you are grammatically required to also leave space between "see" and the ellipsis otherwise you have misspelled the word "see" as "see..."

Aside from the titanic off-chance of finding that, I got nuthin.

RE: The Spelling Challenge
Granted this is a technicality, and you likely will quote poetic license for effect, but here are three instances where you misspelled words, all right in a row, in 2014. Smartass

My precious book (Words Into Type) appears to agree with you. Weeping

It's technically not a spelling error, but I'll make an exception for you this one time (I've hit my limit for today so you'll have to wait for your +1 until tomorrow). Tongue

I can wait for my +3 rep points, no hurry. Smile

RE: The Spelling Challenge
I could be wrong but I get the feeling you make it a point to not make spelling errors. If that's the case it seems a bit of an undertaking to search for any. +1 or even +3 rep isn't enough of a reward. At least for me. Put up something that's actually valuable, like money and I will join the search. I can't buy weed and beer with rep.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
