The preceding statement made by me has several errors. The word "though" should be "through" and the word "Author's" should be "Authors." I don't normally publicly correct grammatical or spelling errors that I have made. In this case, I felt like correcting myself.

One nice thing about people is that we have a certain built-in fault tolerance and recovery ability. This allows us to read and garner meaning from expressions and statements that might foil a rigorous automated grammar checker.
