Detailed guides to painful problems, treatments & more

Typos on a huge scale

 •  • by Paul Ingraham
Weekly nuggets of pain science news and insight, usually 100-300 words, with the occasional longer post. The blog is the “director’s commentary” on the core content of PainScience.com: a library of major articles and books about common painful problems and popular treatments. See the blog archives or updates for the whole site.

My website is sooooo big — I could do a whole series of posts that start this way — when I find the kind of typo that eludes spellcheck, I will now always do a full site search for it, and I almost always turn up several more examples of the same error.

Today’s example: “a least” instead of “at least.” There were five other occurrences of this error scattered around the site.

When you have way over a million words, and you’re always changing some of them, this kind of thing is going to happen quite a bit. 😜
