When spellcheckers fail...

Hehe... When spellcheckers fail, weird stuff happens.
Of course, I really can't conclusively say that Lisa was the "victim" of a dumb spellchecker. And besides, the error you describe sounds like an honest typo mistake, which has since been corrected.
Nevertheless, I do wish to thank Lisa for her article. And, hoping that this will validate her efforts, I'm headed over to eff.org in a moment to make a donation--as I'm now among the ranks of the employed and can afford to do so.

Thanks for the catch.
