Yet another common spelling error that I really don't understand -

Affect vs. effect: Really? Are we still in elementary school? Something has an effect on you, not an affect. Get it straight.

Also, can everyone please join me in making "lickerish" a viable English word again? "Lascivious; lecherous," says wordnik, and really, doesn't everyone need a word that sounds both less as well as more creepy than "lascivious"? "Lascivious" reminds me of overly friendly old uncles who give See's Candies to their nieces and nephews with a creepy smile. "Lickerish" makes me think of these same old uncles as if they all resembled Lickitung.
