Inquirer: Walking a fine line when writing about public typos

In my 30-something years of doing this, here and elsewhere, it is altogether possible, maybe even probable, that I've gotten a word or two wrong along the way. Really! So when I point to the misspelling at Clubview, I do so in that context. That is, in the context of a fellow sinner offering information, but not from a position to offer either criticism or absolution.
