...I think that altering the spelling of a word defining a concept in order to illustrate the limitations of its significance [especially in a text-based medium of exchange when symbolic construction assumes so much more weight] and deliberately baiting someone by calling them by a wrong name are wholly different. So no dice. If you misspell my name then I shall act as if we are, in fact, in a coffee shop, having a discussion, and you have called me Stan [which is not my name either]. I will simply not respond.
