No, I wasn't saying the font creator was making a mistake. The corrupted
phrase "bold face lie" has existed for quite some time. And the
fontographer was right to pick it up and use it. I was just expressing
my sadness that it also perpetuates the ignorance of that abomination.

I get particularly annoyed by language change-through-ignorance. Change
due to legitimate need is perfectly alright. And necessary, if the
language is to remain alive. But I suppose (he admits grudgingly),
drift-through-stupidity also keeps English alive. I don't have to like
it, though.

I think it is more of a pun than a misreading. The font itself is bold
face. I love puns.
