guilty of assualt; Guatemala valcano

Right now on the Yahoo! Canada homepage, there is a misspelling of the word assault. Then, just four lines down,

there is a misspelling of volcano. These nonexistent words (assualt and valcano) would have been caught by a spell checker.

C'mon. You don't really expect that Yahoo's editors would use a spell checker, do you? That would require (a)they have a spell checker, (b)they know how to use a spell checker, and (c)they care enough about the quality of their work to click the spell checker button. I just don't see that happenin'.
