Vitiating?
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, March 07 2013 @ 07:32 PM EST
Turns out it's not actually wrong, it's simply a word I had never heard before today:
vitiating present participle of vi·ti·ate (Verb) Verb

Spoil or impair the quality or efficiency of: "programs vitiated by red tape".
Destroy or impair the legal validity of.
I figured I would post this to spare anyone else the hassle of looking it up, because I had initially assumed that it was a typo of 'violating', but decided to check first, so the person who needed correcting was me.

Alumnia --> Almunia (twice)
Authored by: luvr on Wednesday, March 13 2013 @ 01:01 PM EDT
“alUMnia occurs twice in the following paragraph, when it should be “alMUnia:
“That's 84 million browsers that were not IE being downloaded by users who otherwise presumably would have used IE. After all, if they already knew about the other browsers and knew how to download them, they wouldn't need a browser screen. Cynics, including me, might wonder if that is what caused the alleged "technical error" that erased the browser screen for the next 14 or so months. And yet, when doing EU Commission math, which may have come from Microsoft one might imagine, all things considered, Mr. Alumnia says that in the 14 months from May 2011 to July 2012, when the "technical error" was revealed to the EU Commission, "approximately 15.3 million users did not see the ballot as intended," Keizer says Alumnia said.”
