Are you kidding me? That was brutal to decipher, even for a native speaker.That's almost as hard as reading the court docs. And I'm pretty sure that rule only works on short words and when you use the correct letters scrambled in the middle. I can only guess at the last word you're using.
"Of course, as we all know only the first letter and the last have to be right to be legible."
"Of csroue, as we all konw olny the frsit lteter and the lsat hvae to be rhgit to be lbeigle."
Hello, first post here :) (off topic also) The above reminds me of a 'fortune' I've seen a couple of times when logging into my Slackware Linux boxen:
A Plan for the Improvement of English Spelling
by Mark Twain
For example, in Year 1 that useless letter "c" would be dropped
to be replased either by "k" or "s", and likewise "x" would no longer
be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which "c" would be retained
would be the "ch" formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2
might reform "w" spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the
same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish "y" replasing it with
"i" and Iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.
Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear
with Iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12
or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants.
Bai Iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi
ridandant letez "c", "y" and "x" -- bai now jast a memori in the maindz
ov ould doderez -- tu riplais "ch", "sh", and "th" rispektivli.
Fainali, xen, aafte sam 20 iers ov orxogrefkl riform, wi wud
hev a lojikl, kohirnt speling in ius xrewawt xe Ingliy-spiking werld.
