What do you call someone who loves typos?

(I realize I should probably apologize for this beforehand.)

a typo as in a mispelled word is a short form of typographical error, not typography.

So, for typographic error lover, you'd need to have typo (something negative) phile

typo: 1816, short for typographer; typography: 1641, from Fr. typographie, from M.L. typographia, from Gk. typos (see type) + -grapheia "writing." Typographical "pertaining to typography" is recorded from 1593.

chondria: from chondros: "cartilage" (of the breastbone). viscera. at the core or to the bone.

"mispelled".

Double entendre, Freudian, or just a typo?

Actually, I think dyslexics get too much attention.

It's certainly not the dyslexics' fault. Just like it wasn't the tsunami victims' fault that aid got diverted from starving Africa. But the imbalancing effects of sensationalism and bandwagon-hopping (including in the realm of academic research) are still there.

A typochondriac. Well, actually, that's a person who is afraid of typos.
