This is just a general comment about this whole typo/resume issue and it
predominantly directed at those that go to great lengths to create an
error-free resume.

It's nice to know that when we compete for positions, that the competition from
some will be weaker because they believe that it is OK to submit resumes with
errors and to appear at job interviews with jeans and shirts with logos and no
ties. Don't try to change their minds, just accept it and understand that our
position is that much stronger because of it.
