I don't believe it's deliberate; it's just that both spellings/pronunciations are acceptable and correct in the English language, and both of them mean the same thing. It's not the same as the words "hung" and "hanged," for example, as one refers to execution and the other refers to any other object, etc. I personally use both variations in my posts depending on the context of what I'm talking about. Sometimes it sounds better to me to say something like, "Sam leapt back to 1945." Other times it sounds better for me to say, "Because Ziggy doesn't exist in the year you've leaped into."
