Spelling-gate part deux

Way back in January, there was a controversy in football that dominated the headlines. The folks at yahoo.com called it deflate-gate and deflategate, because nobody cared about consistent spelling and looking like they worked for a blog written by some drunk guys sitting in a bar.

Now, months later, the controversy has reared its head again, and the folks at the Yahoo! front page still haven’t gotten their act together. There’s this spelling, with a capital D, that the writer thought merited quotation marks:

fp deflate 2

But this writer thinks that’s a bunch of baloney (or has no idea that someone else is also writing about the same subject) and came up with this spelling:

fp deflate 3

But wait! There’s more! Someone else agrees with deflate-gate, but takes issue with Wells report (with a lowercase R) and decided this was right:

fp deflate 1

So, in summary, it’s deflategate when it’s not deflate-gate or “Deflategate.” You can read more about it in the Wells report, unless it’s the Wells Report.
