    Default Can a moderator correct the spelling of Word Asso[s]iation game ?

    Seeing as how this thread is so popular, it annoys me that it is spelt wrong.

    (I often get the spelling wrong in my headings)

    What are you? Please do not trifle with national treasures, well known to Google.

    Should we paint up the Kauri forests to look like oak trees? Whould you like it if your name's spelling got changed to Dougbee if a zillion computer consultants each bought a cup holder?

    Now imagine the confusion if titles get changed in mid stream
