A helpful roster of writing mistakes.
I saw most of the items on this list in a William Safire column from many many years ago. Sorry, I don't have the citation handy. Maybe one of those Harvard teaching fellows could come up with one about originality and attribution.
The problem with this list is that the editors don't make it explicit that the list contains errors. People inclined to make the mistakes listed would not be able to identify the irony of the list.
