    Default Comparative of an adjective

    Which one is correct (or more correct):

    simpler or more simple?

    correcter or more correct?

    EDIT:
    In answer to the comment by Verona_82, I should have written:
    "Which one is correct (or preferable):"

    How can something be more correct? It's either correct or not.

    I actually meant preferable (in case both were correct) which means you're right: more correct is wrong in any case => don't ever aim for perfection!
