In the "threads you'll never see" thread that was locked, I suggested two:
AK 2 extension to Rome (was originally Nome)
Signs that should be overheated (was originally overheaded)

Here are some more recent threads that have had one letter (or digit) changed. Most of them are a letter replacement, but additions and deletions are also valid.
