A famous misspelled word

A whole bunch of you folks are misspelling the word GOTTEN as in, "Have you gotten it yet."  I think it is spelled RECEIVED.

Good call, JerryF. This one of my pet peeves as well. I can easily over look typing issues related with the Droid Charge but, not simple poor English.

I'm much more willing to look past things like the use of "gotten" or skipping "is" in a sentence, but some of the ramblings that have no capitalization or punctuation nearly drove me off the deep end over the past couple of days.  That might work in text messaging, but please, not here.

I am an Engineer and it is a common assumption that an Engineer struggles with the written word.  Unless you take the time to think about what you are writing.  I agree with you and share your frustration, majael!
