There’s at least one error on yahoo.com, one of the world’s most visited websites:

Maybe that isn’t such a big deal; it’s just another mistake that should have been eliminated before it made it into our consciences.
If you’re still learning English, you might want to rethink you’re decision to write for Yahoo! Answers. You might just find that your skills aren’t up to par — even for a site with standards as low as Yahoo!’s.
You don’t want to end up writing like this:
I have no idea what “to make it easier” means. To make what easier? I have no idea why the writer can’t figure out how to write a question. Someone needs to explain to this writer about transpose the words in “you should” and “you shouldn’t.” Sigh. Maybe that will be covered in the writer’s next English class.
An editor who’s actually familiar with English and a dictionary, could help avoid this embarrassing mistakes on Yahoo! front page:
I have no idea why jumbled words are so prevalent on Yahoo!. And I won’t speculate why the writer chose pizazz over the preferred pizzazz. But I’ll declare everday a mistake on two counts: It appears to be a typo for everyday, and everyday should be every day.
