To proofread, or to proofread?

Wickedbible

This image is from a Bible printed in 1631. Due to a single missing word, the publication became known as The Wicked Bible.  Most copies of The Wicked Bible were burned.

This example may be taken as an admonition to proofread before submitting QQ resolutions. 

No, if some wickedness slips through, we won’t burn your entry.  We do ask that you write to us so that we will know to correct it.  We wouldn’t want any readers of your typo to get the wrong idea, now would we?
