They're spelled "Camalots", not "Camelots".

Thank you.

In direct, not indirect.
Your shoes have soles, not souls, and your heels go in them, not your heals.
Biner, not beaner.
Rappel, not repel.
You cite a paper and visit a web site.
You use jams to climb a crack; the jamb holds your door in place.
And ffs, they're holds, not grips!

Your complaining about that? I here what you are saying but why get so but hurt? Why do you think we can effect the misuse of all of these dam homophones hear on this forum? Buy now you should know, people are going to post in there own terms, weather or you can personally bare it.
While it's true that good grammar and spelling are a great complement to a well considered opinion, people are aloud to make of themselves as much a fool on the net as they care too, at least in principal.
The only thing that I really find annoying beyond what can be excepted is SHOUTING by spelling everything in all CAPITALS. Makes me want to go brake there keyboards, won after another.

"brake" hand not "break" hand. Unless that is what you mean.

It is pronounced rappel, but it is spelled abseil.

And for the most commonly misspelled word, the contraction of "you are" is "you're," not your.

For all intents and purposes. "For all intensive purposes" is like bleach in the eyes.

Well as long as we're nitpicking, this one bugs me - the past-tense of "lead" is "led".

I led that pitch yesterday. I will lead another one tomorrow.

I hope you all get struck by "lightening" so you are not so heavy and can climb better.
