  • That is one of the grammatical errors that bother me the most along with There, Their and They're.

  • I'm also bothered by those who use then in place of than and vice versa. Their, there and they're also not interchangeable lol. Although it's not the worst thing they could do, it is annoying sometimes.

  • Shouldn't be that hard, should it? Then there's its vs. it's. Can't understand why so many people don't get that one either.

  • Let. It. Go.

    That is one of the most common grammar errors that people make.

  • Well I guess it's a free country, but I am saddened by those who feel the need to defend the right to be ignorant.

  • I don't see why people get work up for something so small. It's just improper grammar and most of the time we all know what the person is saying so why can't people just chill out. We are all human and make mistakes.

  • I agree!

  • It just annoys me when it is so bad I can't even tell what they are saying. Then I just move on to the next post.
