I see a lot of this so I'm saying something. If you are keeping your diapee use on the down-low you are being DISCREET, not "discrete," which means things that are kept separated. Just sayin'

True. But I see both "discrete" and "discreet" misused so often and by so many different people that I suspect the situation won't change.

I see even in newspapers that something was "reigned in" or someone got "free reign." Should be rein, like what you use to control a horse.

I see a lot of people here, too, for whom the spell checker is not a friend.
