There are No Annointed Ones
I've been reading posts to this forum for about four months, and I've been continually struck by the extraordinary number of forum members who consistently spell "anointed" incorrectly as "annointed." I estimate that only one time in four is this word spelled correctly in this forum, when it should be ten times in ten.
Now, I would be the last to suggest that any of us should ever try to police the spelling of other posters, since what really matters is the message, not the spelling, but this is an extremely important word in Jehovah Land--or am I wrong about that? Probably no one will care very much if a current or former JW misspells most other words, but not spelling "anointed" correctly, given its extraordinary importance within the Jehovah's Witnesses' culture, would seem to be no more excusable than not spelling "Jehovah" correctly.

I've been reading posts to this forum

let me see if I can spell jhehovhah correctly.
Just what I need, a spelling lesson from a smug,holier than thou, dudley do right, know all.
Ive formed a mental picture of you over the time Ive read your posts.
Blue hair, blonde eyes and a big toothy smile like Bobby Kennedy.
Thanks for the spelling lesson.
Will there be a quiz?
If so I'd better start studying.
Now let's see if I got it right.
Anounted. No that's not it.
Unointed. Shucks I can't seem to get it.
Does this mean I flunked?
So, it's the words that are important, not the concepts embodied in the words? Right, I'll be sure to be more surface from now on, then.
