Hey Dave,

That's indeed an interesting story!

But at the same time a horrifying one too!

One need to be very careful on this areas especially when it's in a print media. Once it's out no one can do anything.

Out is out!

But when it's come as online of course we have options.

Thanks Dave for this great alert to the writiing and editing community.

Oh my! Here too I made a Himalayan blunder!

A second read or proof read I found it and fixed it!

That is, a great alert to the wedding and editing community! LOL

Generally, when I write commments via mobile I do a second read, this time I did a thorough read since it's about proof reading!!
