I've been planning to base my study on the MCW BHS or a descendant of 
it.  Recently,
a correspondent stated that:

(The Leningrad Codex) "..(as BHS is), which is the most error-filled of the 
ancient manuscripts (it is not even the best manuscript written by its 
author, who wrote a much better one after he wrote the Leningrad manuscript)."

This is a little disconcerting.  Could someone please explain the issue?
