So apparently "You're" isn't a real word, read on a random chatroom..

Uh...Last time I checked "You're"  "You are" is a word.


And if it isn't, anyone care to educate me?

Sounds like someone really needs to go back to school and pay attention this time. 

Just curious ... did they explain what they meant or how they came to that conclusion?

You're is a contraction  word  for you are.     I tend to think  that  besides  juveniles  who  haven't   reached that  level of education  the  ones  who  don't  know this  are  foreigners  and crack  babies  raised  by addicts.

Well, they kept telling me to Google it and to educate myself. And then I asked them to educate me, and they kept telling me to google it.

My guess is that either they don't understand the difference between your and you're or they are talking about the fact that it is a contraction.

When I was very young I had a very particular teacher that took issue with contractions and we were not allowed to use them in her class.  She insisted they were not proper words and compared them to slang. I never had another teacher with the same problem, but her insistence that a properly written paper should not have contractions has always stayed with me.
