Annoying Rant: Copyediting

OK, I'm not saying I'm a literary genius, and I understand that "publishing" has changed significantly in the digital age. But, can someone explain to me how all of these articles are going up without someone else at least looking at them? It's not just io9 but seems to be an issue with blogs both large and small. I find that a simple typo or substitution (e.g., there/their) in the "lede" of a blog post really makes me question whether I should take you seriously. No one is immune to making mistakes but this kind of stuff really sticks out and would definitely be caught by some kind of copyeditor.
