Spelling Errors We Should See

The internet is so full of transpositions of its/it’s and their/they’re/there that I often have to re-read correct usages multiple times out of surprise.

I recently wondered why we don’t see whore/who’re transpositions.¬† Structurally, it’s similar to its/it’s, but I wonder if the pronunciation difference between the two (aside from some British dialects) allows people to keep them straight in their heads.

This message brought to you by the people whore attending the meeting.
