Why would so many of us read stAin as stein and be so convinced we were right.

Why do people selling Berenstain Bears books on eBay spell it stein? They show the books spelled stain. There you go.
Ad writers spell it stein and show product spelled stain.
Apparently bookstore employees will tell you over the phone it's spelled stein. How might they react if shown the books in their store are spelled stain?
People make mistakes.

everyone is willing to accept Stein/Stain as a faulty memory yet it doesn't seem that way.
are you being serious or sarcastic when you state, "The reaction of you few StAiners is almost as interesting as the crazy new world we StEiners find ourselves in"?
By all appearances I'd say they must not be. To catch it in proofreading they'd first have to be aware
Is everyone listing these books/videos for sale not proofing-reading before they post?
