    Noring

    I have read this sentence about the new Google logo: "Went from a nice professional looking logo to a basic noring(sic) 1st grade font and you like it? Yeuch…. not an improvement at all" and I do not understand what "noring" means.

    Where did you read it? Who wrote it?

    Re: Noring

    I assume it was a misprint for "boring".

    Re: Noring

    I had looked up for the term in different dictionaries. I thought it was some mistake. Thanks very much.

    Re: Noring

    You can tell it's a typo if you'll notice it says (emphasis mine):

    Public comments on the Official Google Blog include:


    • Went from a nice professional looking logo to a basic noring (sic) 1st grade font and you like it?

    You will see (sic) used when quoting text to clarify that that is the way it was originally written - any errors or misspellings were the original author's, not the person citing the text.
