He couldn't read nor write. He was illiterate.

with names that are pronounced the same but spelled differently.
First example to mind....
I wonder when they'll all start shooting each other, since your statement implies anyone with different spellings will hate each other on principle and set out to kill the others.
Interesting, spell check considers the double l versions as inaccurate while the single l versions are ok. And I have met people with all four variations.
"They can't agree on the spelling... how long before gunfire erupts?"
If it was intended humorously, that's what you intended.
Perhaps I've seen so much intended to either convey dislike, distrust, and disregard for Muslims, both elsewhere and here, that I read it in a different context. Anytime something is a "joke" involving "they" or "them", there is a better than even odd it's attacking a group, or at least a stereotype of a group.
Of course I was exaggerating a bit when I proposed you meant that everyone that spelled there name differently was going to start shooting each other. In case that wasn't obvious, it was intended as hyperbole to point out the perceived class insult.
I disagreed with what I perceived to be said.
I then granted if you meant it to be humorously, then that was your intent.
I explained what may have colored my view of your statement.
Therefore I go after you for the smallest thing.
Hmmm, I probably only express an opinion on less than 2% of your posts.
