Many business professionals  do not  know how to spell or how to tell the difference between sound-alike words.

In the past, senior executives were protected by assistants who “fixed up” their mistakes. Now most professionals do their own writing (at least in e-mails). Many professionals have been able to “cover up” their deficiencies – but now their credibilty-eroding mistakes are exposed for all to see.
