I’m always ranting (but in a good way) about the fact that Yahoo!’s writers and editors don’t ever, ever use a spell-checker. (Hey, maybe it only seems that way because of the enormous number of spelling mistakes they publish every day.) But here’s an example of a mistake that would slip right by a spell-checker, if the Yahoo! scribes deigned to use one:
Of course, it did slip by the editors and proofreaders, assuming that Yahoo! employees such people.
Anyhoo, I’m indebted to a loyal reader of Terribly Write for this example. If you spot something on Yahoo! that’s worthy of TW, please send it to terriblywrite<at>yahoo<dot>com!
