While I quite enjoyed this thread and, especially considering the
recruiter's followup, it appears to have somewhat been in bad taste.

I can't speak for others, but I'm in my mid 30s and regularly confuse
license/licence, prescribe/proscribe and without doubt a bunch more,
either through finger memory or plain old thinko. It would not be
without embarrassment to have strangers publicly ridicule such errors,
especially in a professional context as occurred here.

This is a minor incident, but it's from a class where the underlying
insensitivity has forced other communities to grow a Code of Conduct,
therefore perhaps it's worth taking a little pause to reflect on it.
