    most mis-spelt word

    most mis-spelt word, I would presume the number of searches for stationary and stationery are about the same

    stationary.co.uk

    I know the Guy who bought this domain back in 1999. I remember him showing me at the time, saying this is a good one, until I pointed out it was the wrong spelling, he must have let it drop :???:

    Don't know if I should tell him about this sale :)

    I've always spelt it with an "a", in fact until Rob mentioned it I didn't even know there was another spelling. :rolleyes:

    I was always taught to remember it as:

    stationEry -> E for Envelope

    There wasn't one for the other spelling, but perhaps this:

    stationAry -> A for Another £$%£$% traffic jam!

    Same here

    That being said, a lot of people use the wrong spelling, aiming to get pens/pencils etc, so in that respect, it's a good buy imo

    yep... pretty crap domain in my opinion, can only assume the buyer thought the spelling was correct. A literal case of more money than sense!

    Nice pair

    J8....you have a nice pair

    Don't forget stationary returns the same results as stationery which can't be related to stationary traffic can it!

    I think the price is high irrespective of whether it is stationery or stationary. I would only value stationery 25% higher than stationary for stationery...

    The moral...So it doesn't matter whether your stationery is stationary or stationery as the consumer thinks stationery is stationary or stationery and/or stationary is stationery or stationary

    :-D I think they need to change their current providing from a stationary providing to a different stationery providing than their current providings.

    Provider

    J8, who said the stationery or stationary provider actually did any providing...maybe they are simply a stationery or stationary provider providing nothing more than stationery marketing to either stationary or stationery providers who do not know stationery is in fact stationary or the other way round as some providers may say stationery or stationary is.

    Ah, but the provider might merely be a station not a statonary or stationery provider therefore he or she doesn't care who gets off as the provider is not a provider but a person who owns the station where all providers of stationary or stationery get off!

    The moral is that one station looks very similar to the other station...they all wear platforms
