However, before computers, books were successfully kept (mostly) error free. So there are fewer reasons for things to be different now. For more errors.
"Computer Generated Errors" down to not having to write the parts of a book in sequence, incorporating new information as it arrives, endless cutting and pasting, more drafts and redrafts.

Re: A plea from me and no doubt other writers

Somehow, all of this was managed without computers, including largely technical texts, in the past. I trust the written word on paper more than what I see on a computer screen when someone out there decides to have a little fun. Work is good and fun, but it's still work. I could have become a plumber
