What started the craze for inserting a "h" into the word "were" and making it into the unrelated word "where"?

What is the idea behind that?

    I know they are not interchangeable, but people treat them as if they are. That's what I'm asking.

    I personally like digging through the archives to find a topic that I don't remember seeing before.  I can't answer this one but I can correct the grammar:

        -inserting a "h"
    should be
        -inserting an "h"

    See, that was fun!
