Spelling really matters even if some people say that it does not matter. If you commit mistakes in spelling it shows that you are not good in English or in grammar. Anyway we are not in school and it's the thought expressed which is important here. So just go ahead shout what's in your mind and people may learn from them.

It's SUPER IMPORTANT if you're a Doctor writing out scripts ~ spelling could be detrimental!

I only got 8 of them wrong. Thats not too bad considering there were a few of them that I didn't even know what the word was.

a septuagenarian is a 70 year old, an octogenarian is an 80 year old. Irascible is to be angered or easily angered (related to 'ire' but not, I believe, to 'irritate').

I got 'harass' wrong (I thought it had two 'r's!) I am in good company, though, over half of respondents also got it wrong! There were one or two I had to think twice about but I am a 'pattern' speller - I see something wrong with the way the word looks and THEN have to look to find what is wrong! Not everybody's mind works that way and that is one reason why some people are hopeless spellers and others not. Everyone has to find their own way of dealing with the problem of spelling and for some (often very intelligent) people it is a lot harder than for others.
