Something to lose

Here’s a word on Yahoo! Makers with something to lose — an extra O:

to loose diy

The word that rhymes with whose is lose; loose rhymes with noose. It really is that simple.

    Simple seems to be too hard for some folks at Yahoo!

      This is a common mistake at Yahoo, but I don’t understand the confusion at all. Then again, I don’t understand how professional writers and editors can make 99% of the mistakes they do.

    I think this mistake is quite common everywhere.
    I saw that word on a poster the other day and I thought, “Do they know the difference?” It goes to show how proofreading is important.
