in your “about” section

Published November 7th, 2006 by Bobby Henderson

In your “About” section, it says “even by it’s opponents.”  I just
wanted to point out that “it’s” is a contraction for “it is,” and not
the possessive form of “it.”  You should say “even by its opponents.”

    thats a bit picky, its only a bloody apostrophy! i dont even use them! i cant even spell! it realy realy doesnt matter!
    but on the other hand that could be why i got a level seven for reading and only a level five for writeing in my year nine english sats last year..hmm

    I used to correct Bobby’s spelling, but then the site got too big for me to use to play Word Police. I find it amusing that there’s a whole strand on the its/it’s confusion, since that’s probably the very first correction I ever emailed to Bobby. (And to weigh in, not that it’s up for a vote, of course there’s no apostrophe in a possessive pronoun–“its” it just like “his” and “hers.” Does it make sense? Oh, hell no. It only matters on the SAT.)

    Here’s something that DOES matter: if someone says he’s allergic to turkey, but he really isn’t, should he be force-fed turkey till he bursts?

    Good eye, but nobody really uses grammar sooo…it’s cool.

    Shut up.

    Well, except for English tests and stuff but that doesn’t matter in the real world now does it?

    Sure you can get around using grammer and its logistics but you might, you know, sound like a stoopid, not smatr, dumb ass. Our loving pasta god loves perfect grammer
