I'm seeing as entirely intentional. He's making fun of a spelling error made earlier in the same thread by someone else.

Ah.  I suspected that, but I only searched a couple of posts down for the context.  Not finding it there, I assumed it was an actual spelling error.

In that case, yes, I agree it must have been intentional.

You can set the forum not to censor words, BTW. Go into your profile and click on "Look and layout." Check the box to leave words uncensored and then make sure to click the button at the bottom of the page.

The downside is that some of the dumber spellings certain forum users persist in using, notably "should of" when they mean "should’ve" or "should have," that would otherwise be corrected by the software, will show up in illiterate-speak.
