Would not be first time

This would not be the first time a word has gone missing on yahoo.com:

A series of mistakes has lined up on yahoo.com. Here’s just one of them:

The word series is both a singular and plural noun. If it’s preceded by the indefinite article a, it’s a pretty safe bet that it’s singular.  So, it requires a singular verb, like has and not have.
