You don't confuse me, but you'd never know it when I type.
Your poll statement is poorly constructed, therefore I will not participate.
Its really good of you to say so.
Or it it's?
I used to think people of my grandparents' era were the ones to make mistakes like that, but if I see it here, 10 to 1 it's someone under the age of 35. They regularly fuck up its and it's, their, there and they're, here and hear and to and too. I'm not sure who is to blame, but I should think all three, parents, teachers and students share the blame. I am in my late 50s and would be willing to bet that most people my age and older learned or should have learned all the differences noted above by the time they entered junior high school at the latest. I would also be willing to bet that those who attended Catholic parochial schools learned it or would face dire consequences from hatchet-faced nuns. Nuns have or rather had a reputation for being great sticklers for correct spelling and grammar.
The iPad is a nuisance because it always auto corrects its *(force no apostrophe)* to it's,
It's it's it's it's it's driving me crazy.
R4, can't the auto-correct function be disabled?
Tell it to all those discrete guys out there!
The auto correct can be disabled, however, then it won't be helpful the 80% of the time I like to have it. It's the nature of the beast.
I think the majority of voters are saying they fuck up it's and its all the time, but they are in therapy for it OP.
That one never gets me, but your/you're does.
And, yes I know the difference.
Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! The possessive one doesn't have the apostrophe.
I think most people know the difference but it's just when you're typing on the internet, your thoughts run quickly.
I don't begrudge anyone who types "its" instead of "it's," or "you're" instead of "your." I treated it as a simple typo. We've all done it. I certainly have. Sometimes I skip words.
Not a big deal.
