My cynical self (one of many, I fear) worries that when the job ad
includes requirements such as "editting, C+, Pearl, MSEXCELL," or other
typos, perhaps I should be creating a resume that contains the very
misspellings that appeared in the ad, in order to pass what I imagine is
in their filter.

I've never done this. Should I? Do I want to work for a place that not
only uses bad copy-editing, but actively selects for it?
