    For example:
    Spot the 'deliberate' mistakes in these:

    And from a leading telecom news journal:
    The use of the word "Facebook" twice in the same sentence was clearly not intended in the medical journal article. And in the telecom news article... Vendors "will be" or they "will remain"? Come on, now - one or the other!
    These are the kind of mistakes that your average spell-checker will not pick up but a human proof-reader can - and, in my case, usually will! Sometimes, to be fair, not in my own writing but that is why we often need a 'fresh pair of eyes' to look at what we have written.
