Stupid, stupid, stupid

Those people who write things like “He shouldn’t of done that” when they mean “He shouldn’t HAVE done that”, just how thick are they? Do they really not notice that the sentence “He should (or shouldn't) of done that” makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER?

Lighten up people - there are worse things we encounter than some botched up grammar or a bad proof-reading job...

i could have sworn i 'sleep-wrote' the above comment....;)

honestly, though; it is far beyond irritating-journalists and others who are SUPPOSED to have a grip on their writing mixing up 'your' and 'you're'; and my favorite, 'loose' and 'lose'!
