    Hi LawProfessor,

    Is there a reason why we see in the Popular Topics index the misspelled option of harassment? It just caught my eye as I came back to the forum after a long absence. Just a suggestion.... Thanks!

    Harassment is actually the preferred spelling, even though harassment is a commonly accepted alternative.

    I am sorry to disagree with you but the correct spelling is harassment...

    Hmmm.... OK, actually I did enter the spelling of harassment correctly. The tag cloud which generates and index consists of tags that users enter. So if users misspell certain words consistently you'll see them show up in the index with the incorrect spelling. I'm not ready to correct all of them, lol. :D

    Thanks for the comment!
