The name is still spelled wrong.  NEVER in my years as a human being

It's always been "nonexistent".  Please fix the spelling before release.

According to the American Heritage Dictionary:


SYLLABICATION:  in·ex·is·tent
PRONUNCIATION:    ng-zstnt
ADJECTIVE:      Having no existence; nonexistent.

It's uncommon, but it's not wrong. That's not an argument for or
against the change, but against your claim that it is a spelling
