But did you, while reading this, encounter every one of the five tpyos I put in here?
I didn't! And yet, I fully understood what you were trying to express. I vastly prefer to autocorrecting my mind does (without even being aware of it) of your readings than throwing an exception on each of your typos.
So, for me, your argument is really "if you prefer 5 interrupts when reading a single paragraph, instead of just do ing the right thing, use strict; is just the tool for you". Now, don't get me wrong, I often use strict myself, but I find your "spotting the typos" example a very convincing argument.
