Wood u serishlee pai attenshun tu if sumwon rote it like this?
Yes, I greatly exaggerated, but my point remains. If you want your opinions to be taken seriously, you must convey them using proper grammar and proper spelling. Mistakes within the text allow opponents to concentrate on the mistakes, ignoring the substance of the text. If Ms. Hughes made the mistake, this is an opportunity for her to learn from her mistake. If this is (another) editorial mistake, highlighting it may push TH closer to prioritizing editing.
Besides, I'm quite confident that "lose" is the single most misspelled word in the English language. One should flag it for that reason, alone.
