I noticed that yesterday too! I was like jeez, just because Jason doesn't like it that much doesn't mean that he has to spell it wrong ::) it's probably the web master's fault, because I doubt that Jason knows enough internet coding to make the site.

True. But it is annoying. I was reading a circoarts book and they spelt it wrong. And they spelt it wrong on the layout of my circus' next performance.

On the topic of bad spelling, can someone please change the spell check, if you can, so that it doesn't try and change diabolo to something else like diabolic

Having been referred to as "Donald Trump", "Donal Grand" and, just recently, "Donald Grunt" in a variety of international "publications", I have to say you can't take it all too seriously...!

Guess old Oscar Wild was right ;)
