Indeed, thanks. In the future, though, please send typos to lwn@lwn.net, rather than post them here, thanks.

It seems to be a common case for people to report typos in comments and then for you to ask them to use the email address.

Perhaps you should add a "report typo" button somewhere in the comment posting process to divert these?

Amen to that.

Or a notice like "Please do not post typos in the article as comments, send them to lwn@lwn.net instead." right above the comment box.

But there is reason to believe that not everybody would notice it …  ;-)

Unnecessarily chatty web sites have long since trained me to scan right past blocks of text without reading it, especially if I think I know what I'm doing. Buttons, however, draw more attention.

I like: Reports of typos via comments versus proper form will result in a 2.00 sir-tax [misspelling on purpose.]

Ooooh! I know!
