The number of times I've seen some of those 'typos' on TMP…

Is it really a typo to use loose instead of lose? Or rights instead of rites? These are just the result bad grammar.

There was an ad in a wargaming magazine years ago for a wrestling game, with the tagline: "Greeks need not apply!"

(They meant geeks, of course.)

Of course, result bad grammar instead of result of bad grammar does constitute – well, perhaps not a typo, just poor proofreading before I post.

Note I resisted the urge to merely edit the original.

Some wonderful examples of dreadful proof-reading in Kindle books…
