The change really started creeping in when as newspapers dropped a paid position, in lieu of Spell Checker. A person reading the article would read 'pled', and let it stand. Most Spell Checkers, flag it as misspelled, Every time I see 'pleaded' in an article, my brain automatically translates it to 'pled'.
Too bad they didn't use an unabridged dictionary for Spell Check.
