I think this partly relates to the fact that people are reading less, so they don't actually see words as often as they used to do, and they
pick up their spelling from the sloppy pronunciation of others.
That's why, to take another example, the old saying "If you think that, you've got another think coming" has been corrupted into the meaningless
"you've got another thing coming".
