Must... add... link...

to one of umpteen thousand discussions of how dumb you can end up looking when you confuse spellchecking with proofreading. And this site reminded me that there's a name for "spellchecker-induced" typos: Cupertinos. (Does that cover spellchecker-approved but incorrect words as well?--like "pubic" for "public" or "new" for "knew"? Or do those go by "wordos" or some other name-o?)

Next up on the skewer: Helen Fisher, the anthropologist with the obnoxious agenda.
