common spelling errorz

Well, it seems spelling is still an issue around the site. To help deal with this issue, I have taken a few moments to prepare a brief tutorial on avoiding the most common spelling mistakes. I hope this is of some value.

Error: There, their and they're are commonly misplaced.
Solution: Use 'there' for the word in all possible contexts.

Error: The letter 's' is overused in the English language.
Solution: Replace with the letter 'z' whenever reasonable. Lookz much more readable.

Error: The letter 'o' is dated and olde worlde.
Solution: Replace with a zero (0) - thatz much c00ler.

The letter 'e' can similarly be replaced with 3 - though this is best done sparingly for various r3asons.

To make for a simplified writing and reading experience, summarise words wherever possible. It is also advisable to leave out the complexities of any capital letters in sentences. Here are some examples:

It is = itz
With = wif
Be = b
To = 2
For = 4
Any = ne
Why = Y
people = ppl

Also avoid 'geek' terminology:

Alloy wheels with low profile tyres = full sik mags
Positive news = funky sheeit
Affirmative = no problemo (remember Terminator II?)
my = me (eg. I left me wallet at home)

ne qu3sti0nz ppl?
