I know some typos are more common than others, but by now "Boostrap" is so incredibly common that I'm beginning to feel it's not them, it's me!

So, the question must be asked. Assuming that "Boostrap" is not the name of some software I'm unaware of (I concluded this by the fact there's no tag named "boostrap" on Stackoverflow) what is going on? Is everybody developing a case of dyslexia? Am I missing something? Is it a joke? Or am I just going insane?

    37 pages in total. Quite awesome, yeah. They should make a tag out of it. – aIKid Oct 7 '13 at 13:13

    Sorry, why is this such a problem if the tags are correct? When people type quickly they make mitsakes, you know? – Oded Oct 7 '13 at 13:15

    @RichardTingle Thank you for the suggestion. May I pass? Google returns 42,000 hits on stackoverflow.com. – Mr Reenlist'er Oct 7 '13 at 13:19

    It's the cockney version of Bootstrap. You better leave that tag alone or you'll have enraged Londoners looking for where you live. – Pekka Oct 7 '13 at 13:25
  • @Pekka You mean the new tag needs a glottal stop? I didn't know tag names could take those... – Mr Reenlist'er Oct 7 '13 at 13:27
  • What is this discussion about? I seem to try searching boostrap (which results to 0). Either all questions were retagged in 18 minutes, or I am searching on the wrong site? – hjpotter92 Oct 7 '13 at 13:30
  • @MrLister one of the more grave shortcomings of the tagging system. – Pekka Oct 7 '13 at 13:30

    @hjpotter92 It isn't a tag, just a general misspelling in posts. – jprofitt Oct 7 '13 at 13:32

    @hjpotter92 search for boostrap not as a tag -- stackoverflow.com/search?q=%22boostrap%22 – Taryn Oct 7 '13 at 13:32

    I swear upon all that is holy and good, if someone creates [boostrap] I will begin singing the song that ends the world. – Charles Oct 8 '13 at 2:39
