What do you call someone who loves typos?
(I realize I should probably apologize for this beforehand.)
or is that a a typöphyle? or a typöphil? or...
... and if you're really deep into it. "Typoholic" is the label!
What Hrant said, or…
Good one Armin!
Hrant, you're hilarious! That's perfect.
Hrant is a dyslexicphile :-)
Actually, I think dyslexics get too much attention.
"Jerome was dyslexic until he was 12, before it became fashionable."

Ice none. Funortionately, some users don't pariciate the redogitory merarks wotard lisdexics.
(I should be more careful. I was talking like that to my kids and offered to take them to a burger at Rudd•••••••. Oops.)
A Typo-heel for sure...
Looks like Joe was being flip in his comments.
An idiot. LOL!
It's certainly not the dyslexics' fault. Just like it wasn't the tsunami victims' fault that aid got diverted from starving Africa. But the imbalancing effects of sensationalism and bandwagon-hopping (including in the realm of academic research) are still there.
A proofreader. It gives life meaning.

A typochondriac. Well, actually, that's a person who is afraid of typos.
Yes, I'm old, but I'm back in style!
a typo as in a mispelled word is a short form of typographical error, not typography.
So, for typographic error lover, you'd need to have typo (something negative) phile
typo: 1816, short for typographer; typography: 1641, from Fr. typographie, from M.L. typographia, from Gk. typos (see type) + -grapheia "writing." Typographical "pertaining to typography" is recorded from 1593.
chondria: from chondros: "cartilage" (of the breastbone). viscera. at the core or to the bone.
_i was just poking fun and plugging my site!
Double entendre, Freudian, or just a typo?
a typofile. Though there aren't too many typos you can fix with a file these days.
