"They say that Elmer Keith's originals were a nightmare for the editors..."

His edited works sure as hell weren't a lot better.

I struggled mightily to get through "Hell I Was There."

Nothing like being introduced to the same individual 3 times in the span of about 25 pages.

Also consider that when you misspell a word, it makes it impossible to find your post by searching for that word.

The way I see it, that also seriously impacts google's ability to find the pertinent thread, as well.

Yes, Google does have some ability to determine the relevance of alternative spellings, but it's not a sure thing.
