Speeling flames

I was just gently flaming a spelling error else-Net, and checked Google to avoid that embarrassing but canonical humiliation of making a spelling mistake in my correction. Google automagically returns only entries for the correct spelling! It doesn't even provide that sometimes-amusing "Did you mean xxxx?", it just appends a list of links with the correct spelling. Apparently there is no Noel Streatfield known to Google, only the properly-spelled Noel Streatfeild who is the author of the Shoe books.
