Rfv-sense: Common misspelling of artful. How common is it? Mglovesfun (talk) 15:06, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

B.g.c. gives 1,420,000 results for "artful" but only 174 for "artfull", making artfull <1.23‱ as common as artful, or about two hundred times rarer than the most inclusive of minimum proportional thresholds (~2–3%). Moreover, besides the fact that it is too rare for inclusion as any kind of common misspelling, listing artfull both as a legitimate obsolete spelling and as a misspelling is redundant. So, for reasons of clocking-out, rarity, and redundancy, I declare this RFV failed.  — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 20:00, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
