Unabated bashery of ‘bated’ naysayers

Cruel Clever Cat

Sally, having swallowed cheese,
Directs down holes the scented breeze,
Enticing thus with baited breath
Nice mice to an untimely death.

~Geoffrey Taylor

Despite being one of the text-messaging generation, I am irked when I see ‘baited’ over ‘bated’. It’s almost as bad as the wanton exchange of ‘effect’ over ‘affect.’
