Every time I misspell "definitely" the spell check thinks it should be "defiantly."

My problem is that at my age my hands shake. So every time I touch the keyboard an "l" appears. And trying to proof read, my mind wonders off before I get to the end of the sentence.

What about the proper use of, you're, your, ur, you are. Oh, and believe it or not, there are CAPITAL letters, to be used properly.

Meplat (from the French word "méplat" meaning "flat") is the technical term for the flat or open tip on the nose of a bullet. The shape of the meplat is important in determining how the bullet moves through the air. In particular the size and shape of the meplat has a significant effect on the ballistic coefficient of a bullet.[1][2] If the meplats on a group of bullets are uneven, the trajectory of the bullets will vary which will cause the bullets to strike the target at different vertical locations.[3] Bullets of the same mass that have similar-shaped meplats will travel through the air in nearly identical fashion, making it easier to group shots together or hit a target multiple times.

Well since it is my thread, I will be the judge of what's added to the list. I think most people spell it as it sounds, so I say nay to that one it doesn't make the list, but very good try.

Come to think of it, only you would use Spue or Spew.

Mold or mould gives me problems.

Not a misspelling, but a common error. Didn't even notice it for several years. The "N" would be tricky when trying to make the mirror image. The older steel mold had the backwards N, the newer aluminum has been corrected.
