    Now I have a place to go when people misuse "weary" or "smarmy" without threadjacking.

    STFU you're wrong I accept my fate. I suck at spelling and I know it.

    I can't think of how smarmy might be misused?

    I see it used a lot in a way that seems to imply that it's a synonym for, like, slimy or sleazy.

    Even of I had reread that ten times I would not have noticed. I went to summer camp college. I was only require to take a poetry class and at the time I was quite excited. Now I see the flaw in this plan.

    Ok for whatever reason I read that sentence as if you were posting from a jail cell all day, and could not figure out why that might affect your spelling.

    I read it that way too after I posted it, but I thought, STFU you're wrong makes me more interesting lol

    My iPhone loves to autocorrect me, too. See scrappy sandals. Also why at least half my posts are edited after posting.

    I use Swype, so sometimes it puts words in that make no sense. Also if I pick up my finger prematurely and keep swiping it splits it into a bunch of random words.

    I often post from my cell phone on the bus, but to be clear, is a chickenism meant to be a malapropism or typo or both? (Or just plain spelled wrong? All of the above?)
