What's your point? Typos can happen whenever the keyboard is
used for typing.
That is regardless if the typing goes into
a GUI, a command line, or file editing.
We are however supposed to test our doings. Then most errors
get revealed, be them dumb typos or the more astute kind.
BTW, I also prefer a nicely commented rules file instead of
the dry list dumped by iptables-save.
