    It is very annoying to see lens spelt wrong so often. Perhaps it may be good idea to have autocorrect feature for this and maybe a few other most obvious examples?

    The Americans can't spell the word colour either . I don't think they have the letter "U" on their keyboards

    We don't have autocorrect on the forum :( Just censoring of naughty words.

    Can you not tell your censor that 'lense' is a naughty word?

    Providing you know what is meant does it really matter? The incorrect use of were\where\we’re, there\their\they’re etc annoys me but I just bite my lip. Also with the varying autocorrect on devices these days there’s no guarantee that what is posted is what was intended or typed.

    Nor did I, thought it was about misspellling with a hint of irony.

    sic is simply an (adopted into English from Latin) adverb.

    But is it abbreviated or contracted from the full sentence "sic erat scriptum"?

    You are correct that the full latin sentence is sic erat scriptum meaning "so, thus, in this manner": however we don't speak latin (generally) and the English word has always been simple sic; so no it's not an abbreviation to a fuller sentence.

    And it's certainly not a contraction.
