    Not as such intentional.
    I don't really set out to spell a certain way.
    Its just like grammer, for example, i always spell with an e, just out of habit and logic, and i don't see why i should change just because its not 'correct'.
    errrr cos i's a realy bad habit to get into and if you start doing it one place, you end up spelling rubbishly everywhere and that's not exactly a very constructive habit to get into...

    No, its only certain words, which to me at least, are illogically spelt in the first place, that i spell 'incorrectly'.
    The majority of my spelling is perfectly adequate, and none of my differences in spelling from the normal spellings hinder in the communication of whatever i am trying to say.

    Is it?
    There are alot of people who aren't american, but i don't think that automatically makes them interesting.
    Or am i missing the point?

    it's not about being unable to communicate, it just looks like errors on you part for example if it was in some kind of job application, it's just looks bad (but obviously if you don't adhere to social norms that is not a problem)

    Yes, you are. I'm not sure why spelling "a lot" as one word seems more logical than spelling it as two though.

    If i was applying for a job, i'd use spell check or something first.

    But where has this idea that i particularly don't adhere to social norms come from?
    I mean, yeah, i do try to get away from some, but people seem to think that it is innate in who i am as a person, which i totally don't get.

    Because alot, to me, sounds like a single word, so should also be written as such.

    Again, i don't claim that anything i do is going to do anything.
    But i don't think its right that others should dictate how i do things either.
    It isn't an issue of defiance, its about choice.

    But when it is spoken (and read as well as it happens) it is 'alot', not 'a lot'.
    And are you sure its a noun?
    I thought, as it describes a noun, its an adjective?
    Or maybe i'm wrong?
