    Human beings? Making a typo? They MUST be incompetent.

    On something as important as a public web page.
    On something affecting thousands of people.
    In a big headline.
    With something that is easily avoidable through the simplest of traditional process, proofreading
    – yes they are incompetent.

  3. I for one would be happy to pay more council tax so the council can employ proof readers and make sure this kind of outrage never happens again.

    So come on Bristol City Council — hike the tax for those of us who, like me, become apoplectic with rage at the thought of typograpical errers.

    In this day and age we can and should expect web authors to do a little proofreading (one word) as an integral part of their job in order to avoid errers (your spelling – designed to provoke, or just a silly error?). This is vastly different from your inference re employing specialist proofreaders.
    There is an important underlying issue about competence at this Council. My experience over the last several years comprises only one good episode and many very poor ones characterised by incompetence, obstruction, bureaucracy, contempt, laziness and sheer bloody mindedness. In my experience the only thing they are routinely good at is collecting my Council Tax.
