This question already has an answer here:
I was reading through the Hottest Questions list and came across this question. As I read it I noticed that type was misspelled as "tyep" so I figured I'd be helpful and fix it. But since I changed less than six characters, it wouldn't allow the edit. I noticed the editing guidance says to "Avoid trivial, tiny one-letter edits" and also to "fix grammatical or spelling errors".
My question is, are we suppose to ignore minor spelling errors?
Thanks to Servy's answer, I understand the situation better. Still, stackoverflow.com says

Neither of those imply that trying to help out with a simple edit is so complicated.
I'd thank you all for the answers and comments, but I know that's not allowed either.
