Typos

I need advice.

I read two stories this morning that both had obvious typos in them. Both had had a beta editor. (Neither was by anyone on my friendslist.) My thought on pointing out typos had been that it was like spinach in the teeth: the author might appreciate being told, but would rather be told in private.

But if neither of these authors have heard from me before, would they want me sending e-mail pointing out a typo? Also, one of the stories is from last June. How late is too late to point something out? I don't want to offend anyone.

Help?
