My favorites -- in a negative way -- are the guys who always use than when they mean then, and who never punctuate at all and write weather for whether. Then there's your for you're, and it's for its. It makes their posts (or, as some would write, there posts) rather slow going.

Why should spelling be a problem? It's so easy! You need learn a word only once and it stays the same your whole life long.

Answer: The symptoms you describe are consistent with dyslexia. Ron Davis refers to dyslexia as a 'self-created' condition. By that he does not mean that it is a person's fault that they have dyslexia, but rather that the particular symptoms stem from an individual's life experiences. Many dyslexic people are, in fact, very good readers, but struggle tremendously with spelling or writing.

A. The aspect of your friend's intellect that makes you feel that without dyslexia "he would be a genius" is probably the same underlying talent that gives rise to the dyslexia. What Ron Davis is saying -- and Thomas West, author of In the Mind's Eye says the same thing -- is that it is no coincidence that so many creative geniuses, like Leonardo da Vinci , Edison & Einstein also suffered from symptoms of dyslexia -- the thought process that is the essence of their creativity is also the root of difficulties with the printed (and sometimes spoken) word.

In my day we called them Spelling Bees - and they were always a problem because the folks running them chose difficult words that were easy to misspell and sometimes even the most proficient students missed them. Also note that if you don't know how to spell it makes it easier to type because the occasional typo doesn't look out of place. Are we a little grumpy today?
