I feel the same way about mute and moot. Please, there is no such thing as a “mute point.”

It's not just here...it's EVERY freakin' blog out there...the illiteracy is astounding!

I know. I see this everywhere, among all levels of education, and it is one of my biggest pet peeves!

I’m “seeing” a professional editor/proofreader, currently. It amazes me that I’m much more anal about spelling on the internet than she is. Because she gets paid to point out errors, she just blows by bad spelling and grammar on the web.

I, however.........

“Shouldn't that be all y'all’s?”

I think you're right. I learned from my Alabama relatives that the simple “y'all” means one person. To address a bunch of people, it probably should be “y'all’s.”

Oh well, everywon makes misteaks.

Y'all are ILLITERATES!!

I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE 'Y'ALL' PROPERLY!

"Y'all" is singular. "All y'all" is the plural.

You should say "All y'all are illiterates!"

Some people.

You might as well start ranting on “its” and “it’s” and “your” and “you’re,” for starters.

Oh, and “there’s many cars” rather than the correct “there’re many cars,” etc.
