There are a lot of grammar/spelling mistakes that I hate (and which I occasionally make), but the one that gets me everytime—the one I simply cannot understand how anyone makes— is “comming.” Where does this come from? It’s not like “becoming” has two m’s that might throw you off. Dropping an “e” from a word and adding “-ing” doesn’t magically double the “m.”

A quick search on Google shows that the word “comming” has been used 142,000 times on the web (after removing references to “dot-comming”). Unreal. -ram
