I am very impressed! Until now, I have never been able to get those typos into my work at such a high rate.
For a few years, I edited and co-edited an Air Force base newspaper
-- without benefit of a spell-checker. We only had IBM Selectric typewriters. So, we could not fix typing errors so easily. I watched my work carefully as I went so that I could back space
to the error and correct it. It would not work as well if one had already hit "return."
I think I have retained this habit of carefully watching my words as I typed them. I believe I sent the post just before this one with virtually no typing errors. When it posted a few seconds later, it was a version with many funny typos in it.

I admit I have let a few hundred slip by in 2200 posts to this forum. Yet it occasionally seems someone has rewritten a post to add typos.
It could be a kind of "jobs program" by the "Office of the Handicapper General" which Kurt Vonnegut told us about
