I'd give him a pass on this one.  I see too many times where "it's" is used when "its" is correct.  He's just restoring balance to the universe by doing the opposite.

Minor punctuation errors don't bother me, especially considering a lot of us are posting from mobile devices using one finger and relying on autocorrect.

That's very true. "Its" gives a lot of people trouble because it's kind of an "exception to the rule scenario". So thank you @saevel25 for keeping the universe in balance, you've done good work here.

:-D

But I'll NEVER give anyone a pass on " its' ".   That's just someone who slept through the entire 8th grade.

There is no such thing as "its' ", I'm hoping that's what you mean and I'm sure it is, but just in case...

@saevel25 -  Its is correct, its' is not. So you can stop your dancing', you didn't catch me.:banana:

No, we're talking about " its' "........its with an apostrophe after the "s".

The apostrophe hides well next to the quotation mark. :-P

^True story.

 

I consider myself good with spelling, but I probably come across a word once or twice a day that I'm not sure how to spell.  If I don't have time to look it up, I just change the structure of the sentence and use a different word.  :-)

"Believe." It took me years to remember that it's i-e, even with the pneumonic (I just assumed it was one of the rule-breakers, like "weird").

There are even more words and phrases that I gloss over when I read them. "Double entendre," for instance. I get through "double" and the first few letters of "entendre," and my brain says, "oh ya, it's that word," and moves on.

There was one word I read a lot as a kid - it may have been segue - that it didn't "click" was the same word the first four or five times I heard it, because having only read the word, I was pronouncing it differently.

 

I wish I knew what word it was. I'm only 60% certain it was segue - but I could swear too that it was longer than that.
