[quote]I see people writing both on DL. Which is it?
dEpensd on whehter you aRe dyselcxi or tno.
No it depends on whether you have been on Datalounge long enough to know it used to be WHET because someone once typed what happened ever to? and it stuck.
What Hever Eappened To_____________?
There. I said it.
One of those boring idiosyncrasies that, I regret to say, really old people practice.
It's almost as funny as Cheryl, earrings and caftans.
The Milkman? The paperboy?
WHET to my underwear? I had it last night when I went out, but this morning
OP, "WHET" is the DL standard, taking advantage of an early misspelling (similar to "graxy") to produce an in-term to help separate the real DLers from the faux, latecoming, drudging know-nothings.
But the latter are now so prevalent that the "real DLers" have pretty much abandoned the site, and left it to the twits and tits.
The DLers who loudly yearn for the old days are the most boring posters of all (and I'm including those idiots who argue back and forth about Anderson Cooper and his boyfriend in the boring count).
We're not loudly yearning for the old days, r11, we're just pointing out, in response to OP's question, what the correct spelling is.
What Ever Happened To .... where, exactly, is the confusion?
For fuck's sake we don't have many of our own words or spellings...personally, I'll stick with WHET.
