1. A skill that is rapidly becoming anachronistic since the advent of the computer age. Being able to spell words correctly as they appear in a dictionary of the English language.

2. Something so rapidly diminishing that it prompted a major university to do a study showing that it's not really necessary, that as long as the first and last letters of a word are in place, we can figure it out. So apparently spelling for its own sake would be useless, then. Fuckers.
I am bitter because no one employs proper spelling any more, instead choosing to take the easy road in our society of instant gratification.

Being able to spell like a normal, educated person. Some people aren't capable of this; this is why words like yuo, OMG, teh, dood, and much of the haxor language exists.
On UrbanDictionary.com, proper spelling has gone the way of the dinosaur.
