I copy my posts into an e-mail sometimes and hit Spellcheck. Of course, sometimes I don't, and the typos stay in the quotes.

I routinely fix misspellings in things I quote when I notice it, so the person won't be embarrassed.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. It happens everyday, and people only really notice it if every other word is misspelled (which I have actually seen!). Even the smartest people here will switch letters around sometimes in the hurry to type out their thoughts. It's human.
