And if they don't like it, they can eat a newkyaler bomb.
less/fewer (Bloody NOBOODY uses fewer nowadays, damnit.)
There's many (Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!)
In today's world, the list is illiterately endless.
I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues.

transportation vehicle **BUS** only has a single "S".

This is tilting at windmills I know, but maybe someone out there will
be helped by knowing which are the most common woodworking
misspellings here on rec.woodworking and elsewhere. Feel free to chime

Loose means a thing that is not tight.
Lose is misplacing something.
Joiner is someone who joins (wood, clubs, whatever)

Planner is one of those books with a yearly calendar, or a person who
Planer is a tool to make 2 faces of a board parallel.

from the anti-faq:
BTW the correct spelling accepted in rec.woodworking for some words
are: joiner, planner, scrapper, rabbit, tennon (tendon is definitely
wrong), hobbiest, course (not fine), bisket, popular (Liriodendron
tulipifera), cyprus (Taxodium distichum), tounge & grove (tongue is a
finishing oil), radio alarm saw (tmLJ).
