I've seen "definately" so many times recently on so many lists that it can't
be a typo. A large number of people seem to believe that's the correct
spelling of "definitely."

I know, I know. So what. Perhaps I'm just in a curmudgeonly mood recently,
but I find it annoying. :-(

Perhaps someone with psychological insight can explain to me why it bothers
me so much. ...RM
