Its shocking! Funny also. My favourite is defiantly, meaning definitely. 

 

Be fun to catch out defaulters! (Not of the monthly bill kind)

 

Fun, not nasty.

 

Maybe MF can have a counter for those nabbed?

I can't say aluminum or most Maori words so I fail and am banished from this contest before it even started.

Honestly, it seems like online posters are pretty rebellious folk. So much defiance!

That's ok, you got kicked out by the spelling week, as that's not how you spell aluminium ;)

 

And where's your macron?

How about this for starters? Literacy has really gone downhill at RNZ the past few days or so. Suddenly I am seeing a lot of this kind of thing. I think they hired someone new:

 

 

 

'Dr James Quach said that once developed, the battery could be charged in less than a second.

 

"So for example your mobile phone at the moment will take, I don't know, thirty minutes or an hour to charge with the quantum battery and if we are successful it would have instantons charging so it would revolutionise the energy storage industry," he said.'

 

 

 

That is incoherent in at least  two different ways.
