third party error spotting, but so brutal it's worth sharing: dave mckenna publishes a takedown of a badly-reported/made-up story in the baltimore sun, the reporter responds to argue with the takedown in the comments, mckenna destroys him.  :uhcomeon:

damn hah.

This Broadwater fellow, who doesn't deserve his first name, has some serious issues. Completely decimated. The "NFL/Delta" response about touchdowns was hilarious.

Why can't people just admit defeat anymore? It's at least respectable..

Maybe I should stop posting emptywheel typos? I mean, there seems to be at least one in every article. It's probably more appropriate to post errors in articles that have a huge staff behind them.

Whatever. Keeps the thread going.

I stopped posting typos from articles written by TheHil.. They are littered with typos, presumably because they rush articles out. That's interesting in itself.

here's an article just for you, adarq: https://psmag.com/news/what-typos-can-tell-us-about-this-white-house

Quote
President Donald Trump's White House has produced more than its share of spelling errors and other typos. This may seem trivial, and even ticky-tacky of me to point out. But I'd like to argue that these point to larger and more systematic problems in this administration.

I've seen a few articles related to that.. it's definitely a bad sign.

Above all, to me it indicates sloppiness. I pretty much proof read everything I write.. You've pointed out several typos from me over the years, most notably bear vs bare - lmfao. But for the most part, I enjoy proof reading what i've typed. If i'm sending out an important email to someone, i'll proofread it several times over.

So, all of the typos in the Trump administration point to rushed, sloppy, careless behavior. What & how we write, is a lens into our brain.

I've also had a theory that some typos are deliberate - but just some, not all. I feel like Bannon & Co. theorize that typos help create a bridge to the "common man" -> "hey, they're (Trump et al) just like me! I make typos too!" :/

Found some gems in a peer reviewed publication. <3 Error Spotting Squad caught some big fish tonight.

Am I a dickhead for doing that? I mean, that's a published article.. not like they can just easily correct it. If I published an article in a journal, and someone tweeted me with typos, i'd be pissed - not at them, but at myself.

:trollface:

when reading the openssh-portable INSTALL file, found a few easy typos, but then also one on their page.
