Is Meta the right place to report typos on SO-family sites? I'm referring to bug reports like these:
I don't see why not. We don't want the giants of Mispelheim to win the Grammarok, do we?
They're not exactly "bugs", but there's no where else to report these things - this is where the devs will be looking, after all. You could send emails or use flags, but I think posting on Meta is more appropriate.
More importantly, this allows them to be publicly declined in the scenarios where it isn't a "typo", and so we stop people from repeatedly pestering about it.
Even when it isn't declined, having it publicly reported means that we only need one report. If we handled it through emails/flags, then no one has any clue that it was reported by someone else - yielding filled inboxes and flag heaps as everyone who cares sends their information. At least on Meta, if we get a duplicate report, we can close it.
