Well, it turns out that Streuwelpeter/Stuwwelpeter was not the only slip of
the typing fingers in that post. 

When I merrily poked fun at the "euphonically challenged  " who use the
spelling aneupolids, I was a bit orthographically challenged myself: I
should have typed "aneuploids". 

Isn't any one reading these posts? I've given all of you three
opportunities (the Streuwelpeter/Stuwwelpeter thing, the misspelling
aneupolid, and catchiest of all the aeuploid/aneuploid issue) to jump in
and straighten me out, and no one has taken any of them! 

I'll attribute it to aestival lassitude. 

Someone please at least take the bait on the aeuploid/aneuploid thing so I
can do my piece on that.
