“Can’t anyone use (or NOT use) an apostrophe properly?”

About 20% of the time, apparently.

Also from the article:

It's unclear who's property they did it from.

Should be 'whose'.

Of course’as long a’s they follow this rule:

Every word ending in “S” with a consonant before it requires an apostrophe. If the word is a subjugated compo’nd, superlative with a comma no apostrophe is required unless’ it add’s clarity to a question’. In case’s of hyper’bolic refracting conflagration’s the apostrophe may substitu’e for any letter of ‘th alpha’’’’’’. (20)!
