    Your typos and spellcheck

    What are your most common typos?

    I'm a quick but horribly inaccurate typist. I waste half my life going back and correcting my mistakes. Think god for spellcheck. (ps Spellcheck thinks spellcheck is a typo.)

    For example, here are the unedited first couple of sentences of the last post I made.

    "After being swept by ythe Mets nad losing their first to the Astros, the Braves finally won a game. SPolied Houston's 50th birthday."

    Those twin capital letters at the start of a word, like SPoiled, are pretty common for me. I lived in California for years, and still type it Califronia. I'm a Redskins fan but usually spell it Redksins.

    Plus about a million others. You?

    The iPad usually corrects everything for me, but I always go a quick scan before I hit send or post anything. I did, however, recently get a new case that makes it more difficult to hit the space bar. I sometimes hit the letter "v" instead so I'll type something like, "hey bro, did you get the newvMadden? Kind of annoying.

    Plus anything on a touchscreen is fair game and not worth correcting, from a time management perspective (For me.)

    I think the typos that remain in my posts speak for themselves. My thoughts are usually ahead of my fingers. I am usually doing 4 things at once so I do a quick scan and hit send. I do make a few corrections on most posts, but plenty are missed.

    My phone is a Pantech Breakout, and if any of you have one of those then you know that the touch screen keys are very close together and are very sensitive. I constantly have to fix typos when texting, but thankfully the autocorrect feature helps make that quick and easy. As far as regularly typing I can't think of any specific problems that I tend to have, but I will usually mix up two letters in a word on a regular basis due to the speed I type and sloppy technique. For example it'll be common for me to type something like "relatvie" or "mistaekn" that I have to go back to and correct.

    That is in fact the correct spelling of Cincinnati. I'm not sure if you were trying to do that or not.

    I have a really bad habit of leaving out negatives--such as 'not,' as in 'not pregnant,' or whatever--at inconvenient moments.
