I don't think people WILL excuse your ignorance much longer. A number of people (including me) put quite a bit of effort into trying to explain this to you in detail, but you seem to have just ignored everything we said.

Here's the bottom line:-

- Typo of a 100% GENERIC WORD... maybe OK, maybe not
- Typo of a MADE UP TRADEMARK... definitely NOT OK and you'll get crushed by lawyers if they decide to go after you

The ability for some people to seemingly have made money off trading in trademark typos doesn't suddenly make it "legitimate". The industry is changing, the mood of key players likewise, and what was once grudgingly ok on the wild west frontiers of a new industry is no longer acceptable today.

Do what you like - ultimately none of us care. But if you ask for help, listen to it.
