Some writers on an online article submission site have decided that purposeful miss spellings or any miss spellings are not in keeping with the quality necessary to help such websites. In fact these folks want to make a rule against it? Well I just so happened to be the most prolific online article writer on the Internet with nearly 5600 articles and so I took a sample of all my articles and titles and copied them into a Microsoft Word File and ran spell check.
Okay so here is the deal. I have 5580 articles or 161 pages of titles and I have here some 220 Titles with theoretically miss spelled words. With 35 titles per page that is 6.2 pages of the 161 pages with miss spelled words in the titles or supposedly miss spelled words. Personally some might have a problem with this, I sure as Sheet don’t.
Of these words many are industry words or words in everyday speech, the news, newspapers, scientific words. A few are purposely miss spelled and about 10% are mistakes frightful indeed, makes one look bad, however if there are 22 mistakes in Titles of 5500 articles, I can accept that error of .05% that is ISO 9000 certifiable or Six Sigma Black Belt quality. The Industry words, which are correct but spell check shows incorrect are about 80% of the 220 miss spelled word titles. Personally I see no reason for a rule against miss spellings in titles of online articles, as I believe no problem exists that is worthy of mention. Consider this in 2006.
