Any pacific examples of that?

It's almost as bad as random capitalisation of words that shouldn't be ;-)

Try reading the book Feersum Endjinn by Iain M Banks, most of it is written in a form of pigeon English, when you see the words it makes no sense, however once you say what you see it does make sense, itís a hard book to read, but it gives you an idea how difficult the English language can be.

I suspect misspelling occurs due to the use of predictive text, but there again so may Malapropism.

In many of my own cases it's more a case of the fingers notkeeping pace with the mind.

Jus like that!
