    across a typo or a grammatical error while reading a prestigious publication like The Wall Street Journal, or The New York Times, I just shake my head in disapproval.

    I have to be more careful, especially since it is this type of stuff some people may use to avoid engaging in any substantive discussion of the subject at hand, instead choosing to discredit the entire argument being presented by focusing on a typo or grammatical error.

    Point well taken.

      about someone else, you'd agree that writing quality is an indication of intelligence ... and it's indications of a lack thereof that also can cause some people (especially new readers) to even consider the substantive point which the author is trying to make.
