If you think readers don’t care about typos, think again. Here’s a little typo (in a headline, no less!) from yahoo.com:
Did readers notice? Of course they did. And they had something to say about the error:
- His nind is fine. His mind, not so much.
- What exactly is “Nind”? perhaps its the author that is not doing well….
- However, Wilbur’s ”Nind” is in question now.
- Trump is in a constant New York state of nind.
- State of nind?
- Trump’s “state of nind”? yahoo has surely lost its own.
- A nind is a terrible thing to waste.
- why not do a spell check yahoo
- I can see typo or spelling/grammatical errors getting thru the proofing process when it’s part of the article’s text. That’s impossible to always avoid. The headlines should never have one though. That’s embarrassing.
And my personal favorite:
- I do worry about the “State of Nind” of the proofreaders at yahoo. Perhaps they should have their Covfefes examined.
