The English language both spoken and written is a complete cluster f*ck. The language contradicts itself all the time, so it's not a huge surprise that people will make grammar or spelling errors. (Chaos, Knife, Couch) based on the basic rules of how our alphabet works, none of these words and literally a ton more make absolutely no sense. And it is because English is a bastardized language that was colmenated from every other langue on planet earth, even dead languages. So is it really hard to believe people may have trouble remembering all of our asinine rules?

Not to mention... Many technical manuels are written with nearly perfect anal retentive grammar and impeccable spelling, and are boring. Sometimes when you focus completely on proper writing principles, the creativity takes a hit and the writing comes off dull. I would rather read an interesting story that has grammical errors and misspelled words, than I would a book written perfectly but lacking imagination.
