    Default Face paced context included

    I tried 3 times to reply to Anglika's query about context, but none of my replies showed up. So here is my question again; this time with context included.

    What does "face paced" mean?

    Here are some examples as found on the Internet.

    Please give us the context in which you found them. On their own it is not possible to tell you.
    It is my reply to that message that is missing. The context requested is in the shown above.

    Cannot make out the problem.

    My answer is that your examples all look like mistakes and that the phrase should be "fast-paced", particularly in the contexts of the examples.

    The appearance of a phrase on the internet, and the number of hits for it on Google, do not establish its correctness as a phrase.

    Word up, Anglika. Could not agree with you more.

    All of the examples I have been able to find seem to be illiterate misspellings. Of course I may just be behind the times, but I doubt it on this one.

    Anglika and Weiming. Re: Fast paced misspelled as face paced.
    That's what I thought so too. But when I found so many "face paced" (and faced paced as well) on the Internet, I thought it was a new "slang."
    Until I come across evidence to the contrary, I will take your word for it as being a misspelling of "fast paced."
