As a member of another (german) newsgroup I would like to inform you, that we are discussing just the same thing: orthography! Here is a quote from a german journalist which I have posted lately, for better understanding it has been translated by Babel Fish...

"I stand firmly to my conviction that it is a first-rate charakterliche Widerwaertigkeit to make itself merry over other people spelling mistake. Is amazing, as straight people, which talked otherwise all possible irregularities or even the Anarchismus the word, bit itself over a few redundant line moose ereifern. I see a erspriesslicheres certification of people creativity in apostrophes, in places, where before ever apostrophes were not, at least as in Graffitigeschmiere at historical buildings. Orthography is a pretty thing for people, which have fun at it." Max Goldt
