I don't think most people would describe Koreans as "dark".

Try working for a company whose name is deliberately misspelled...(as a sort of pun, but not a funny or immediately obvious pun)

I always worry about giving my email address over the phone...even if I go real slow, people will get it wrong. And of course, the people who get it wrong are never people who have other ways to contact you, like clients (you would hope they know how to spell the name of the company they are hiring). It is always some vendor that you contacted by phone, got forwarded 3 times, and have no way to reach back out to without the email they are supposed to send you.

I still don't know why we don't just buy the "correct" spelling of the domain name and forward all email...

A local supermarket chain had that, but they changed it, so now it's a different name also misspelled.

Meaning 1: used with gentleness
Meaning 2: used by gents (meaning men)

It's the best I could come up with on short notice.

It's probably the best I could come up with even if I had unlimited time.

No, no. I understood. I was just saying I don't get (receive) it. Meaning the product in question. Get it?

This is getting too meta for me. I'm sure otc doesn't appreciate us making light of his chosen profession, either.

It makes me chuckle that this was the post that took me over the threshold into being "a renowned expert in the community." Thanks to lawyerdad for the assist.

I can assure you that nothing I have for sale has been used gently.
