    This is on a site discussing typos but it is not a typo.

    Linguistic recovery
    The words "atheism" and "atheist" presently appear to be on course for a full recovery, albeit slowly because it can often be difficult to "see the forest for the trees" while in the throws of the gradual evolution of anything, particularly language. With the advent of the internet, access to information, along with the profound freedom to publish literally any ideas, has lead to more meaningful - albeit uncomfortable at times - forms of truly open and honest discourse that serve incidentally as the driving pinnacles of progress.

    Which is why doing your own proof-reading may not be the best idea
    ..........................
    anecdote:
    A type setter at a local advertising paper was bored one day and did the copy for the local hardware store.
    Describing the properties of a rake, she typed "soft moist warm upper inner thighs" ----- The hardware store guy never bothered to proof read the text and so that is how it went to print.

    (I have wondered if anyone, after reading that, went into the store with the advertisement in hand and said: "I want me one of them there rakes.")

    I'm guessing another example of Auto correct and poor proof reading
