may I add that the most common error I see on these postings is definate/definately instead of definite/definitely.
I wouldn’t worry about it. Vowels are the first things to change as languages evolves, a century from now (if they have machines that are sufficiently backwards compatible to read this at all) kids will probably wonder why we were all so fixated on ‘a’s ‘i’s and ‘e’s. Everyone knows those words are spelled with an ‘o’…
We’ll be in no position to criticize them either (aside from the fact that I doubt I’ve got 100 years left in me). We’re the ones that bred a culture the spells it DFN8LY on on our cell phones.
