I was born in 1955, and thus am used to reading newspapers which have continuation errors, a problem a lot more time-wasting than most of what is described here.

I wish I could reproduce here a 1960 New York Times article concerning my worksplace. Lines and paragraphs are randomly distributed. And that was (and IMHO is) one of the best papers.

Even today you can find small-time papers, or at least single issues, that are no better than the uncorrected scans at archive.org/texts.

I am blessed with not noticing the vast majority of single-word errors.
