Honestly, I’m not a pain in the ass about spelling in general. But an error that gets repeated over and over. And it’s such a common word. It’s WEIRD not WIERD. Look at this from Webster’s:
adj. weird·er, weird·est.
1.Of, relating to, or suggestive of the preternatural or supernatural. 2.Of a strikingly odd or unusual character; strange. 3.Archaic. Of or relating to fate or the Fates. **
We all know the I before E rule, but we also know there are exceptions. Weird, being, characteristically, a bit weird, breaks this rule.
Searching all fora for the last 5 days reveals 26 threads with the wrong spelling plus one with Weirddave misspelled.
For the love of peanut butter people, IT’S WEIRD!!!
