Seriously now Stuff, did your proof reader take the day off?  On the homepage, in big letters, embedded in an image no less.

They must've read your blog post:

A New Zealand police officer has died after he was allegedly assaulted in Tonga.

That said, their proofing is generally not good at the best of times.

I read the Sydney morning herald, they must have some good editors over there.

I constantly find spelling and grammer errors on Stuff. I've even told them on Twitter before to go and proof read and article I found numerous errors in. They replied saying their national editor reviewd it and couldn't find any errors.

I went back to them with a couple of specifics from within the article which they quickly fixed. I'm not every very flash with my own spelling and grammer - but then again, I don't write the news!

This is one of the reasons i do not use stuff anymore too many spelling/grammar problems and pics not matching story's. There content is not updated often enough even on week days. In my opinion Stuff is a very amiture. I dont have good spelling or grammar but im not a editor
