Ignorance? Or just stupidity?

Okay, I understand that many people misspell the word "bingeing" by spelling it binging (with no e). That's perfectly excusable. Human error. The word "bingeing" doesn't even look right.. but "binging" is wrong.

What is NOT acceptable is for a college textbook to spell it b-i-n-g-i-n-g. That's just wrong.

Also, this college text says that a characteristic for bulimics and binge eaters is drug abuse. It states that it is not a characteristic with anorexia. I beg to differ.

How unfortunate. College textbooks are enforcing ignorance.
