I think there is some lenience when spelling recently made up words. I really debated whether or not I should mention my IQ because of responses like yours and others, but what the hell. It's pretty funny how defensive everyone gets; it's as though by saying my IQ everyone else feels like I'm making fun of theirs. It's not hard to do well on IQ tests, especially if you've taken a few different ones. Really, from my perspective I'm a bit on the slow side, mostly when compared to the people I went to school with. No one questioned my claim about having depression, but isn't it just as likely that I'm making that up so I have something to bullshit about on slashdot? Having an IQ in the top 2 percentile doesn't make me a good person, talented, a good lover, or a skilled craftsmen. There is more to a person's worth than their IQ. I actually have a very limited skillset. Honest to god, I'm not bragging. I was just setting up a morbidly funny comment. Most people in my life do recognize me as smart--something that's true for the majority of /.ers, I'm willing to bet. So I'm not claiming to be special in any extraordinary way, certainly not to this crowd.
