      Some are auto-text errors. Others may be written by people with disability or English isn’t the native language.
      If lack of proofing bothers you. I grammatical error cause you to need to call attention to yourself then you could be Borderline or NPD. Stick to newspaper or books which have time for proof. Internet articles are designed to be here and gone If an article gets a lot of reads it may be edited and stay up a while. Otherwise it’s just an incident report which fades from view.
      I know first hand some of these are sent in over the phone, others via text. With spell checkers and auto text it’s not difficult to see how this happens. The web person at the office is merely given material and moves it to the web.
