    Misspelling words is a sign of rebellion. Nerds love to rebel since it makes them powerful. Hence, nerds misspell words.

    In a way, misspelled words tell you something about the person writing them. I believe you could just call it another form of self-expression. Why do authors use technically improper grammar? To express an idea or feeling in a way that proper grammar could not.

    I usually do it to mock people who can't spell, or people who do it for the "geek/gamer chic" factor.

    But how do you feel about Illinois Nazis?
