spelling

I am having issues with spelling, recently. Not the kind of issue
where I want to bash someone's head in (or at least, that isn't
anything new), but rather that I want to bash in my own.


During the past two days, I have looked up how to spell two different
words that I should know how to spell. Adviser and connector.
Both times I originally wrote the word down using a different vowel, I
wrote advisor and connecter. Now, apparently both advisor and adviser
are correct, and I want to use advisor.. but most people don't. Do I
stand my ground and do the same thing I do with "judgement"? Or do I
try to not look stupid, and spell it the more common way?

Connector/connecter is just stupid. I know that I make mistakes, but I
found this one so unacceptable that I was shaking.

I need to be super careful, and I need to read more. I read plenty,
now, but I read e-mails from training coordinators who can't spell,
e-mails from employees who think "ges" is a word, and facebook updates
from people who want to pretend they are twelve.

In academe, advisor is the common spelling.

You should only conform to your beliefs, not anyone else's.

Also, it's rather neurotic to start shaking over a spelling error -- just sayin'.

Go with the O.
I use advisor, personally.
Please don't ever let me see you write judgement outside of a reference. It was painful to write that.

America is going down the toilet. Apparently, irregardless and orientate are now acceptable words in real life.

Re: Go with the O.
Brits spell it "judgement" (if it's in quotes, does it count?)

irregardless is the worst (non)-word ever.

Much like pineapples, I am hardcore.
