What is the grammar of “the blur the protect the identity”

After the problem has been identified as "typo", I realize that this should be close because, well, typo is not a proper English grammar. Should I close this question?

And if yes, which flag to use?

  • BTW the question in question is closed right now. – M.A.R. Oct 25 '15 at 15:38

I have seen previous questions based on typos getting closed. Here's the proof.

I'm personally for closing them, since

  • they won't benefit anyone else.
  • the answer would shift from being based on expertise in linguistics/terminology/whatever to being based on . . . whatever.
  • they're not about English, any more than this question is.

If I sit and think more thoroughly, I'll come up with more reasons, but you get the idea.
