Ever since the great and revered Noah Webster first revolutionized America with a standardized system of spelling, grammar and pronunciation of the English language, including his creation of Webster's Dictionary, spelling has been considered a necessary part of writing.

This view has been given a severe blow by the fact that aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.

It has further been shown by the use of chatspeak and other related dialects of "English" that spelling, though useful to one's understanding, it not necessarily needed by the reader... in most cases.

Further research has proved through the study of people like Tara Gilesbie that bad spelling may not, in fact, be due to a lack of education, as previously thought, but a disease known as Spelling Anarchy. Symptoms include: the total rejection of Spelling, the propensity to slaughter this mainstay of the English Language in a cold-blooded manner, and, in some cases, to still create a work of art, as evidenced in Tara Gilesbie's magnum opus, My Immortal. Take, for example, this prime example of Spelling Anarchy.

"AN: stop flaming ok! I dntn red all da boox! dis is frum da movie ok so itz nut my folt if dumbeldor swers! besuizds I SED HE HAD A HEDACHE!" - Tara Gilesbie

Translation: "Author's Note: Stop flaming, okay? I didn't read all the books; this is from the movie, okay? So it's not my fault if Dumbledore swears. Besides, I said he had a headache." [Translation courtesy of Unknown Person]

Side effects of Spelling Anarchy such as the above may also include: Headache or Insanity (both of which may also be caught by the reader). In the interests of public welfare, it recommended by the Grammar Police and English Majors that reasonable human beings refrain from writing and/or reading dialects of English such as the above, as researchers have found evidence that Spelling Anarchy may be contagious. However, Brain Bleach has been shown to have value in affecting a cure for the above-mentioned ailment.
