Dictionary Definitions:

Slight: adjective; 1) small in amount, degree, etc. 2) of little importance, influence, etc.

Sleight: noun: 1) skill, dexterity, etc. 2) an artifice, stratagem, etc. 3) cunning, craft, etc.

So, which are you? I could be interested in joining if it is the latter.

He has informed the multitude that he is spelling in this strange manner quite deliberately although I am not quite sure why. At first I thought it was merely because he did not have a British education.

Fair enough. Perhaps he doesn’t want people to easily find the site if they are looking for sleights. But why stop there? May as well misspell “magic”.

Hi,

I call it "Slight" as a pun because I don't have hands.

Best,
Mahdi

"Sleight Club" is also the name of Scott Robinson's group that meets weekly. They have published books and put on the annual TRICS convention.
