"definitively"

Until I started using the auto-spell-check on Firefox 2.0, I had the terrible habit of spelling “definitely” as “definately”. Well, apparently, I (and other misspellers) pushed somebody a little too far. Expect to see more sites dedicated to a single commonly misspelled word. Any nominations?

    apparently – I often catch myself misspelling it as “apparantly”… I also misspell definitely.

    I love the new Firefox feature! 🙂

    “Definately” is one of my most hated misspellings of all time, and I don’t remember ever coming across it before the internet was around. I applaud these pedants.
