If the world's top publishers and broadcasters can't get it right, I won't expect such accuracy from the masses on the Internet forums. It's amazing how many times we see such errors in places where they should not be.

Another one is when people use "there" instead of "their" to claim something.

One that I found interesting was people confusing the word "of" with the word "have."

I could of gone out after work.

Mixing up their and there, it's and its, etc. makes sense, but "could of" ? They're only typing something that sounds like what comes out of their mouth when speaking, without knowing what they're actually saying.

Here's an amusing obituary on the death of the English language.

I'm pretty sure I'm guilty of that.

I find it odd to see someone type something like "That's good to no"... know.

I have been dating a girl who simply hates the mis use of your/you're. For the first two months I was corrected through text constantly. She fixed me, I now notice it with others. I personally think you'uns need more problems. But I play along for her.

That was one of the examples from the "obit" I linked above. My favorite was "doggy-dog world." Do they even know what they're TRYING to say? LOL.

Okay, now that we have that cleared up, can we please, please stop using " 's " to pluralize? It is used to show ownership.

This is Tim's Fiero. His wife says he has too many Fieros.

Why did it become commonplace to use this incorrectly? I see it on the internet, in print, and I have even seen it on television. Stop it. Please.

What makes those two even funnier is how many people don't know why "doggy-dog" and "walla" are incorrect.
Most people get it when you tell them they used the wrong "your/you're" etc. But what's the correct version of "doggy-dog" or "walla?"
Many won't know because they're writing based on the sounds they've heard other people speak without actually knowing what the words are.

Some spell checkers insist on adding the superfluous apostrophe.
Sometimes you just have to know what's correct (or look it up) so that you can ignore them.

....or Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring. Seems equally appropriate. Maybe Fanfare for The Common Man as well.
