By the way, it's strange how often "then" and "than" are confused with each other now. So often in fact that it doesn't seem like just a typo.
Don't get me started on "roll" and "role."
Yes, there are a number that sound the same but have different meanings. "Too" and "to" etc. But the weird thing with "then" and "than" is they don't sound quite the same and the pronunciation gives a hint about the spelling, so maybe they are being mispronounced as well?

I hasten to add that I'm not referring to BillJ's usage of course, but to the "then" in the quote of JJ Abrams where the writer means "than".
