Some writers are so confident, that they never question their abilities. They never question their talent for spelling. They never refer to a dictionary or ask Google for help. Such is the writer for Yahoo! Makers who thinks she can spell dachshund:
Heck, WordPress won’t let me misspell it. It even put a little, red squiggly line in the title of this post. So, why didn’t Yahoo!’s publishing system catch this misspelling?
And why didn’t the editor catch this one?
I guess they’re all so confident in their spelling prowess that they never questioned the word. Over and over again.
