My keyless entry fell off my keychain in my car and my car was the last place I checked after panicking for a few hours about having to buy a new one

From someone who neglected to differentiate between cars and car is while correcting them. I just dislike seeing the obvious corrections being pointed out yet at the same time ignoring others.

107, I agree. But I think the your/you're is more important in this situation because the poster used both in the same sentence for obviously different meanings and STILL didn't see their error.

I agree, your/you're IS important. But if you're going to grammar police someone, at least do it right and get all the errors and not just the most common one.

If you correct ALL mistakes someone makes you end up looking like even more of a douchebag and all that person sees is a list if errors that they're not going to read. They will switch off and may just resign to being bad at English and unhelpable. You also have to decide where to draw the line with slang, text talk and possible typos. Correct just one important word and they're more likely to read said correction (whether they meant to or not - the brain has a way of automatically reading short sentences). If they see that correction multiple times then they may actually realise there's a problem and change.

If anyone has been a commenter for a decent period of time, they know the difference between your and you're, or they are helpless. To pick only one error, the 's when contracting and is would be the more important one, since it is corrected less.

101 - I saw it after I had already commented. I was just in utter disbelief that people STILL do this, so I didn't bother to read that rest of the comment until I was done. My condolences, my fellow grammar nazi.

Every time someone talks about losing faith in humanity, I am pushed a little closer to the brink of insanity. Seriously, people are way too dramatic. If something like this shocks you that much, you need to get out more. By the way olpally, I am not trying to single you out, as you are certainly not alone in this.

Just thumb it down, go insane then for all I care... Just for making a comment like this one like so many other people do? Really? That's being dramatic... Lol. Oh I understand.

Yay! Bury me into oblivion because that's the trend when someone makes a bad comment like i did and then all the subsequent ones i make after that one will perish too! brilliant... Don't even read the comment and thumb it down cuz my original comment got buried..LOL that's just fantastic... :D
