This Writer Lost Me at "We're"

I'm usually pretty understanding about typos and grammar errors -- they indicate things about the writer.

But this story is published at what sounds like a professional journal (I did not follow the link), and looks professionally formatted and written, so to have "we're" instead of "were" totally derailed me.

What do you think?
