Whilst we're at it,misspelled is misspelt. If it was spelt misspelled then it wouldn't be misspelt. If you see what I mean
Once again we see an example of two peoples separated by a common language.

I like to make a distinction, though, between "ignorance" and "stupidity."
My fourth grade teacher once said, "There's a difference between being ignorant, and just plain stupid!" I didn't understand what he meant back then, but I figured it out pretty quickly once I went into retail.

Heh. Retail is a cruel master, and could very well be the most educational time of many people's lives, in its own twisted way.

True, but only for the workers. Rarely for the customers.

One of my favorite teachers, lo, these many years ago, explained it this way:

Ignorance is when you haven't had an opportunity to learn.

Stupidity is when you have had the opportunity, but refused to take it.
