    It's not common to make a careful mistake.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    What do you mean?
    Do you mean this sentence incorrect?
    Do you mean everyone will not make a careless mistake?

    Practically all mistakes are due to carelessness unless it is a deliberate mistake.
