I was again pissed of the other day by the typos in ArtScroll chumashim, and why they are not corrected, on the contrary, they are repeated in different editions. I have a list of 100+ cases. Previously, I've asked here if it was OK to create a meta post here collecting these typos.
I know that it's not quite on-topic, but I suppose MY is the best online Jewish community and I'd much appreciate it if we could work together on this list. Who knows, maybe one day ArtScroll would correct them. But before committing myself to work on it, I'd like to get an assurance that it wouldn't get deleted.

@DoubleAA There are dozens of places where the pashta and the kadma are mixed up in both ways, and there are some other absolutely nonsensical mistakes. I'm definitely not talking about different traditions like ולא תתורו/זֶכֶר-זֵכֶר etc. (Although I have a strong private opinion in the matter.)
Although only Hashem doesn't err, it's annoying that they don't correct them despite having dozens of new reprints and titles.
