Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Actually, "judgement" is an accepted variant spelling of "judgment". Just ask your pals at Merriam-Webster.

That said, my particular weakness is that of wanting to write "reccomend".

I mentally divide that one into two equal parts: broc-coli. For some reason, that helps me remember how to spell it.

I dunno what it is, but my friend keeps recommending this site twoo. However, whenever I put that in it's autocorrected to woot, cause my computer knows where I REALLY want to go. Who gives a carp about social media sites?!

I have to give a trout out to whomever listed teh, that's one of my weaknesses as well. Luckily it's easily caught and corrected if autocorrect doesn't work in the recipient program.

I don't know if I'd call it a misspell or a typo, but my main mistake is holding the sith button down too long on a regular style keyboard. All the time I find my self holding it for two characters (there's a tough word, always wanna put an h after the second c) instead of just the one I wanted to capitalize. (another tough word)

The last word I used to consistently misspell was "separate". ("Seperate") Now I don't make mistakes, but my iPhone does.

I spell it judgement on purpose, because I like it better and it's an acceptable variation. If I'm writing something official (I'm a journalist, and AP style is judgment), then I backspace and fix it.

As for the rest of the words, rhythm often takes a couple of tries. But my big challenges used to be double letter words like Cincinnati, Broccoli, Massachusetts, etc. I eventually committed those to memory.

Yes, separate always gets me, so often in fact, my phone now autofills it incorrectly!!!
'Conceal' as 'conceil,' 'commercial' with only one m and 'definitely.' Wow, I'm a mess =)

I definately struggle with some spelling. And it's so unneccesary.

I was also going to make this remark. I am old enough to remember when we graded each other's spelling tests in school and I always use the e just to be ornery!

Acknowledgment. I always want to put an "e" after the "g." I guess it does get spelled both ways though. ? ?

Came here to add separate.
I've turned off all spellchecks. I'd rather correct my own mistakes. Or not, if I've done them intentionally.

I don't have anything to worry about if Woot can't even spell the words in their poll correctly.
