Well, this is embarrassing

I just went and corrected 150 casefiles and 25 resolved pages where I had misspelled the word “led” (as in “led to water”) like “lead” (as in “I will lead you to water”). It turns out I consistently misspell that word. I actually knew how it was supposed to be spelled, I just… forgot. Or something. I didn’t realize the problem until someone pointed it out to me.

Tracking down, correcting and posting all the pages with misspelled “leds” took two and half hours, though part of the time I was on the phone and was thus working more slowly than usual.

    Ha – I’ve wondered about your “led” vs “lead” usage for a while – but no one ever said anything so I thought it was intentional or perhaps an inside joke. 😉

    At least you don’t do “loose” vs. “lose”. That drives me NUTS and two very close friends of mine do it all the time.
