Or perhaps that separate has (sep)A RAT(e) in it.

Citing no one in particular, and without intending any offence, I've
noticed this common misspelling of `separate', in several recent posts.

I think the manual should be maintained seperately and simply as a
basic reference...

Now, while I don't claim to be a paragon of spelling perfection, for
I certainly am not, for some reason I find this common error particularly
irksome.  Therefore, I'd like to share with you all, a little mnemonic
technique which has helped me to avoid it in the past.

The next time you find yourself writing `sepErate', remember that to
`sepArate' the two `E-s', *two* `A-s' are required.
