People need to stop using the possessive "Your" when you should be using the shortcut for You are, 'You're." Learn it. Live it. Love it.

Possessive "its" has no apostrophe.

There, I said it.

But really, my issue is the war on the verb "to be". Do we all really need to talk like we're from da 'hood? (I'll give a pass to anyone from Pittsburg; but then you also have to use "y'ins".)

It does make reading a bit easier. There, their, and they're is another set of words often used incorrectly.

Your and you're can be an easy grammar mistake especially when in a rush, 'imo'. I'm guilty of it from time to time. And frankly seems a rather minor one 'to me' when compared to often reading/seeing the word 'break' used for the word 'brake', even in thread topics on bitog. And then 'there's, their and they're'. That said, point taken.

Wasted bandwidth. By the time people are adults either they know it or they don't. Their not going to change now and your not going encourage them too. Yoonz just gotta grit yer teeth.

Not just us good 'ole boys - I had a memo from a PhD stating that he would keep me appraised -
I'm not a parcel of real estate - but he did keep me apprised (of the relative progress)

Now short speak is another matter - (like how I wrote this coffee )

Far worse is the proliferation of 's mayhem. Mostly it's with plurals ("dish'es," etc.), but I've even seen things like "hi's."

Their hi's dish'es.
