Morlan's Law of Quiz Bowl Writing" states that "Typos are bad, but they're better to have than bad questions."

  • This is a corollary to Unproductive Moderator Complaints and Weiner's Law of Unfalsifiable Complaints, which states that anyone looking to complain about something can always complain about moderators reading too fast, the questions having too few pronunciation guides, or the questions having too many typos, since "too fast", "too few", and "too many" are both subjective assessments and, as measurements of scalable quantities, can theoretically be leveled at any tournament without infinitely slow moderators, infinitely many pronunciation guides, or perfect aesthetics.
