    Come on people, it's really not that hard.

    I see this every single day here, and I won't let it affect my English.

    I remember my English teacher was always annoyed when someone made this mistake, and it bugs me now too.

    Oh and this might be more HF style...

    It's mastUrbate, not mastErbate.

    If you like doing it so much, at least learn how to spell it.

    Yup, you're spending your time right.

    or masturate, or materbate, or maturate, or any of the other common variations.

    and on the subject of sex threads, "5 inches" is not spelled "8.5 inches."

    Australians not knowing the difference between Lose and Loose is worse.
    Advice (something you receive) and Advise (something you give) is another one.
