Along the same lines, "break" and "brake" are two different words. I see that one more often in cycling forums, but still...

I needed something to moisten the part of my skis that limits vibration….so I used a dampener on my damper.

The snow was deep so I should've (not should of) taken my powder skis.

What's even worst? ;) Autocorrect on my phone is adding apostrophe's where apostrophe's don't belong! It drives me nuts! (Yes, grammar errors were made on purpose.) The dumming down of 'Merica!

I try to avoid these kinds of mistakes because...well...its annoying.

There is one situation where I think they should be completely tolerated and thats when its Siri error. If Siri uses the wrong word or spelling it should be ok to just go with it. Thats the convention used with many of my friends. We all know its a Siri goof and don't waste time correcting it. Its Apple that can't get it's act together not the author.

There is always google for goggle, too; that's just a finger mistake, but it happens so much now.

I don't let these things bug me too much, or I'd be constantly bugged, but it depends on the source. I threw (through) a small facebook tantrum yesterday when the Denver Post published a headline with allude in place of elude. That is simply unacceptable. It was online, and yes they changed it (after an hour!), but this kind of thing happens all the time with the Post.
