Premeditated Misspelling

adding errors for understanding
  [vote for,

To send a coded or subliminal message one could purposely misspell some of the words in a text. The typo-rich result would differ little from average web fare, but could only be deciphered, consciously or not, by spelling-mindful readers:

Another mood booster is to trie vegetable gardening. This does not mean on a farmmer production level, but for example a potato patch sufficient to enjoy home-grown baked potatoes or French fryes several times a week. Garden food is always more tastie an has more nutrients than store bought. One gets a goode feeling from seeing Nature struggle and produce, whether the weather is four or against, and u become stronger with the challenge.

       Try farmer fries tasty AND good for you!
I thought the use of an was slang rather than spelling error...

       I'm sure the Russian's brightest minds could crack this though!
MikeOliver, May 07 2004

       For encouraging bad spelling I grant you this fisch boan.

       Thanck ewe, DrBoob.

       Its important to seal your tub lining sso water doesn't filter into your basement. New tub linings are hard to reach while stoopid, but can be managed with the help of a chair. When caulking, its imperative that you actualy dry the tub first. Another clevver idea is to hire someone else to do the work for you.

       Eye dew knot understand. Wood th mesage bee in the miss spelings, ore the un-you's'd parts of the reel wurds?   

       (it's a message for the Swede. we'll see if he gets it.)
k_sra, May 07 2004

       I was thinking the misspelled words only, but read after correction like [k_sra]'s "so stooped actually clever"?
FarmerJohn, May 07 2004

       Well, "it's" is misspelled twice in there, but close enough! Clever Swedes!   

       (and stooped was a stretch. We all know what I meant...)
k_sra, May 07 2004

       It's harder than I (an American) thought.
FarmerJohn, May 07 2004

       NO! Surely not! <blush> And here I've been thinking for months how good your accent was. Ha! </b>
k_sra, May 07 2004

       [k_sra], that's brilliant. A code that can only be fully understood by Apostrophy Pedant's.
spacemoggy, May 07 2004

       [bliss] Read only the misspelled words in [k_sra]'s or my text. Judging from many typos on the net, this may very well be baked.
FarmerJohn, May 07 2004

       You only wish the ignorance had purpose! J'ai mes doubtes. But I will rummage the net for proof because I'm a sucker...
k_sra, May 07 2004

       (Two hours later)   

       Just using what's local (see link) I came up with the following encripted message:   

       "I'd I'd light sucker annoyed impunctuality(?) I'd I sucker I'm its I sucker sucker sucker I'd"   

       Any takers on deciphering?
k_sra, May 07 2004

       Maybe it's connected to this one, also local (second link). I copied it to Word and it lit up in red and green like a Christmas tree:   

       “Let’s separating wasn’t I so there’s particularly who’s doesn’t won’t I I American as no-one there criticism I.”
FarmerJohn, May 07 2004

       Itt should have been obvious, but it touque not only a hint, you have to lonng for it enuff.   

       Dang it... Now Im thinking about building a web crawler to actively seek out hidden messages on the Internet and compile it all into a searchable database. Suhc an system would also require some sort of fast-and-lose grammar check algorithm to parse through all the "it's-its" swaps ore other common errors based on context.
