One more thing
While I'm in curmudgeon mode, I have to say I'm sick to death of supposedly intelligent people who can't fucking tell the difference between the word lose - the opposite of win and loose - to let something go. There's a whole lot of "loosing" going on on the internet, more than can be explained by the occasional fat finger, which we're all afflicted by from time to time. While reading an otherwise intelligent and properly-spelled post, this particular error sticks out like a giant sore thumb saying "Look at me! You might as well stop reading because I can't tell the difference between 'lose' and 'loose'!" Aside from just general laziness and stupidity, I think you have to lay some blame on spell checkers. People get complacent knowing that any misspelled words will be marked. I submit that all spell checkers should flag the words loose and loosing (especially loosing) as possible errors because really, how many times do people actually want to write loosing and not losing?
