This is how mistakes spread

When the verb phrase opt out appeared on Yahoo! Sports with a hyphen — not once, but twice — I feared we’d see this mistake elsewhere:

opt-out sports

It looks like Yahoo! News picked up the story and went with the misspelling of the verb, too:

opt-out news

Hey, they may be wrong, but at least they’re consistent. For a change.
