Is Spelling As Important As We Think?

I came across the following on FaceBook and thought I would like to share it:

I can read it, can YOU?

fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too. Cna
yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

i cdnuolt blvelee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I
was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan
mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde
Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a
wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and
lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl
mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit pboerlm. Tihs is
bcuseas the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by
istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yeah and
I awlyas tghuhot sipellng was ipmorantt!

If you can raed tihs forwrad it.

I can read it without problems but it certainly makes you think about the emphasis we put on spelling.
