      @cazort aka Alex, people might be kinder on your blog, but on twitter, you see people getting worked up over things like that all the time. The “your/you’re” mistake is so common, but I don’t get why it bothers people so terribly. It’s an incredibly easy mistake to make when you’re typing fast. As to those who really don’t know the difference, I don’t need to get mad at them for that either. I’m not saddling up my high horse over things like that.

      Fascinating stuff..When I see “your going out” it doesn’t phase me because it sounds the same when I read that sentence to myself. I notice it, but it doesn’t matter.
      On the other hand misspelling big words is different. Well, for small words I’m not fond of people misspelling “friend”. You quite often see “freind”. It’s not a big deal, but I’m more inclined there to think, “shouldn’t you know that word by now” – than when I see “your going out”. With the latter, most likely it’s a genuine mistake, because someone typed too fast. It could happen to me too. But then I’d feel odd going back and saying “sorry, I meant you’re”  because I know – you know what I meant.

      Very brilliant. However, if they were tweeting, the rule would’ve been the exact opposite.
