    Yea, its rediculus.

    I also don't like to hear people who put in the effort to try and quote something, but don't put in enough to quote it properly.

    "it's" is the contraction of "it" and "is"

    "its" is the possessive form of "it"

    "Irregardless"

    They're, there, and their.

    You're and your.

    Its and it's (the apostrophe is not a denotation of possession. God damn.)

    "Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet" is the line everyone mumbles through in the Finstone's theme. So there it is, you know what it is now.

    Also people who throw "basically" and "essentially" in front of every other sentence when they're explaining things. I mean good God, we get it, this is a summary of events.

    When I was in high school a lot of people would say "presentating."

    "Are we presentating our projects to the class today?"

    I meant in the common context, but you're right.

    I meant when used like "I could care less about what you're saying you tool."

    GET IT RIGHT, FUCKERS!

    Don't stop there, it's not difficult to make sure that while typing a word you believe to be correct, take the extra half a second and make sure what you're typing is what you mean to type.

    "Your" vs "You're"

    "There" vs "Their" vs "They're"

    etc etc
