I'm so disappointed in FARK. One of their news items:

Protip: If you're going to grope a woman at a theme park, make sure you do it where you won't be seen. Doing it on a ride that takes your photograph is definately NOT the place to do it. (with pic)

Because of the content, or because they misspelled "definitely"?

I've never understood why people have such a hard time with that one. I never see anyone spell "definite" as "definate", so why is it hard once they add the "ly"? And... I've never met anyone who pronounced it as "definATEly", so even if you sound it out, it's "definITEly". But I know plenty of friends who have issues with that one.

It's the 'e' between the 't' and the 'l' and the phonetics.

Apparently it's just me but I find the content more appalling than the typo.

Much of their stuff is a little appalling-- that's something you have to realize before you read FARK. Much of their readership is super geeky/smart though, so you think they'd check twice about spelling errors.

Oh, I know about the tone because I've read Fark before (used to read it at work every day to kill time).
