I do want to know who is responsible here. I'm guessing that it wasn't Maiesha or Anamaria.

"Contractor".
I've said it before, I'll say it again (and again), outsourcing does not work without a quality control system.

Back in the olden days when I subscribed to a newspaper I would occasionally call out alarmingly to my wife (a librarian) that a number of librarians were arrested at a protest then show her the headline about a bunch of Liberians being arrested.  The last straw was when I got her a Liberian flag t-shirt for her birthday.  She was never amused by this.  She hated people saying Lie-Berry more than you can imagine -- especially from the PHD candidates at the on-line university she worked at for a few years.

A few years ago when the VFW hall in my neighborhood was being renovated, they put up a portable sign that said "HALL CLOSED FOR RENTAVATION".

 I work for a publishing division within a university. Most of these people are college graduates, some are professors, some are authors, several are editors and librarians. A fair number of these folks have PhD's and we have students that are working on PhD's and other smart stuff like that.

Spelling, capitalization and punctuation are regularly abused by these same people.

One time, senior management put up a plaque in our office to commend the work of the engineering department. It hailed our "unwaivering commitment to quality." I never did point the mistake out to anyone because it was so perfect. The sign stayed up for years.

Probably the custodian (it sure wasn't a teacher or anybody in the front office - that's manual labor) going off of a note given to him, spelling as is (he's not an editor)

If only there were some sort of bound paper device detailing the correct spellings of words and a big building designed specifically to house it within that they could've consulted?

I work for the largest junk mail printer in the country. We had lots and lots of promotional posters plastered throughout the buildings. obviously we created those for ourselves but we are also trying to sell these services to our clients. One of those promotional posters was a congratulations for everyone who had been nominated for employee of the month. They listed each department and the list of people's names under them.

I noticed they misspelled our department name. I took the poster to a variety of people. They were all blind to it. This particular poster was up across all the departments, on every wall. With this misspelling. For our clients to see.

I was the headgeek of the database group. I put the Unix systems together and coded in Perl and human resources hated me. I hired my own people and ignored them. They did the poster. Of course I had to call the head of HR and notify them of this mistake because of course they had to rip down every poster in every building immediately, or else we'd look like morons. Hehehe.

On my exit interview 5 years later that took about 5 minutes of the 2-hour conversation.

There was a bakery near me that advertised 1 loaf - 90p 3 loafs - £3 or something. I couldn't bring myself to buy bread from a baker who doesn't know the plural of loaf.

"Better than half price". Well that's true. It's better for Tesco.
