I mean I understand this is iq and iq is for younger people but seriously if they don’t know how to properly spell it larry page and alphabet inc created google for a reason

If I search “axel” in the forum, I get 50+ threads where the word is spelled wrong, both in IQ and EDR. Therefore, the spelling problem is extensive, not just limited to a single thread.

If there’s a problem with it, then post on the thread. Leave it be and the thread will filter down.

Also: Definitely and Defiantly are two different words.

Same with its and it’s

Another one I’ve never understood: our and are. People get them confused all the time. Maybe they’re doing talk-to-text?

I have a high school team and was looking through their EN last meeting and noticed that one team member had spelled it wrong. So, this is useful.
