Many typos in a manuscript 1) pisses me off as a reviewer (not a mood you want me in) and 2) makes me question your science as well.

I have never understood this nonsense. Ever. What do typographical errors on a manuscript or grant application have to do with the quality of the science or the scholarship. The thinking?
Copy editors can catch the typos in manuscripts.
Grants? You are on your own risking a failure to communicate your points. But a couple of typos leading some jackwagon to decide they can't trust the science based on this? Please.
I completely agree. A sloppily prepared manuscript reflects *really* badly on the authors. https://t.co/6mdXMFtAJH

Obsession over minor typos reflects *really* poorly on a reviewer. #forestnotseedlings
