I read it through as a challenge, and was able to read it fairly quickly,
although not as quickly as I could have if the words were properly spelled.

Why?  I think it is because, for me at least, I pattern match words.  When
the words are misspelled, the pattern matching is more difficult.  Context
helps a lot, although your statement that "you can sitll raed it wouthit
porbelm" is a bit overstated, don't you think?

It also upset my stomach as I read it!
