I don't see any problems. Eveything looks just right to me.

adding an an 'r' to everything clearly takes longer than a New York minute. Haven't they even got a spell check

This was hard to find. You are a born editor. Either that, or editing has mutated your brain.

I'm not 100% sure it's a mistake. Might have been done on purpose. MIGHT have been. Probably not. But it's been up for a while...and that's a quick type change fix.

even though mr. copyranter sir is an expert, i think there is no way in hell this is not an accident. what point would they be trying to make? are they actually analogizing the okay-ness of running slowly with subpar copyediting?! one's head explodes.
