The word overseer is a word. I checked by looking it up in two dictionaries and a thesaurus.
All I did was change the tense by adding ed.
Please teach me about the rule that dictates I cannot change the tense of the word overseer into overseered.
I love learning it is the one function that is continued all the way up to our last breath and then we enter a new paradigm of learning.
Thank you for stimulating my intellect.

What goes through a linguists/grammar person's mind when they see the new spellings of old words that are used in advertising? For example: "lite", "nite" and on and on ad infinitum. Does anyone write to the offending companies and inform them of their mistakes?
Misspelling words horribly is one way to get around spiders on the web.
I know some of you do not believe in the CIA or spiders.
Just take another blue pill and ignore this post if that's the case.

I am so bored of these self-congratulatory memes 'Keep drinking the kool-aid', 'pay no attention to the man behind the curtain', 'red pill, blue pill' etc.
