Copyeditor required, daily work likely, apply underneath Jess Wade, superstar Wikishit

This might be a fun experiment. People of Wikipediocracy, look away, I know how embarrassed you get at being proven to be morons. The sort of people who can't even spot when a Wikipedia editor is so shit, they can't even shpell gud.

Hypothesis: Jess Wade is so sloppy and so under pressure by her self set target of publishing one Wikipedia biography a day, while also holding down a real job as a scientist, a side gig as a children's author, and generating a constant drivel of Twitter dross, that she probably doesn't even proof read her daily contributions to Wikipedia.

Aggravating factor 1: Jess Wade already knows she is untouchable on Wikipedia, and she already knows nobody else on Wikipedia really cares if her articles are pure shit. Least of all the people who celebrate her for being such a hero simply because she posts one women/minority biography a day, on the apparent assumption that because they should think themselves lucky that they are getting recognition by Wikipedia at all, they shouldn't complain at getting a second class service.

Aggravating factor 2: Jess Wade has previously said that her perception of the Wikipedia collaborative model is that she posts content, because HERO, and other people come along and fix it, because GRUNT, and if you think that's a warped misrepresentation of the original vision for Wikipedia, you're the one with the problem, so talk to the hand and stop harshing her mellow, you sexist pig dog.

Test Methodology: Simply count the number of typographical mistakes in her daily articles, and produce a rolling average, starting today. I am already checking each one of her biographies for failures to properly source BLP material, where she already has a 100% failure rate over a week or so, so recording typos should be easy.
