Their, there, they're i go again
I'm no genius in the world of grammar,but am i the only one who gets pissed off at the constant use of the wrong version of "there" being used on forums, blogs etc.
There are three different versions for a reason.
I just wish the lazy fuckwits would learn how to use them. cunts.

Well, I do see your point.
But to quote a certain bloke who was quite light-of-foot on the old water- "Don't try and help a person with a speck of dust in your eye until you can see past the plank of wood in yours".

More random...
...but there are also three words - 'peek', 'peak' and 'pique' - none of which remotely overlap. And this board's not the only place I see people fucking that up.

'Should of' instead of 'should have'
I keep seeing 'should of' instead of 'should have' - sometimes in the more august broadsheets. If they won't defend proper grammar, who will?

Bit late in the game,
