# Correcting authors' typos in excerpt from papers

In this question the correctly copied excerpt from the paper used reproduces a typo that would make the findings of the paper invalid. The correct simulation setting is found in the paper cited within the paper used. (It is clear that one cannot use the variance in the paper the OP uses, an error variance of $300$ instead of $1$ would invalidate any findings.) Should we fix the excerpt presented and break compatibility with the original text or not? I checked other version of the paper used by the OP (here and here) and all have the same typo.
