do you use "noone"?

I just wanted to say "noone" isn't a word. It's "no one". TWO words. I'm astounded at how many people write it this way. Just sounding it out, it sounds like "nooney". I'm posting anonymously because I know how annoying it is to be the English police, but this particular word drives me crazy and I see it everywhere! No offense if you spell it that way, but please stop!!

  • do you ever think maybe someone just forgot to hit the space bar? its really not that big of a deal. Not to me anyways.

  • Maybe some people forget to space. Or they are trying to spell noon(12pm).

  • shay I've seen several people use it, even in the same entry, and they always spell it that way. They aren't just making a typo. I don't know why it bothers me so much, but I think if people knew it was the wrong spelling they would just change it. I like to know when I'm spelling something wrong.

  • Correct, noone is not a word. I think people get confused because anyone is a word- When in doubt:

    Hint:  Use Full Editor/Plain Text button

     Hit the spell check button.

  • hahaha When I just saw the question title I could NOT figure out what a "noone" was! LOL
    I also hate "prolly" and "suposably" - that one makes me cringe. My cousin says that.
