it's in the title should be its.

Incorrect. "It's" is a contraction of "it has". The possessive form does not contain the apostrophe. http://englishplus.com/grammar/00000227.htm

If you want it to be possessive, it's just I-T-S.But if it's supposed to be a contraction, it's I-T-Apostrophe-S.Scalawag.

I love seeing grammar Nazis who don't actually know what they're talking about. It's one of life's little pleasures for me.

I might be a borderline grammar nazi, I have to admit. I'm not perfect, and I can let some stuff go, but people should really know better on most things. The whole then/than your/you're thing bothers me a little. People always say "who cares?' but actually, society cares. Good luck getting a job when your resume looks like your kid sister banged it out on her cell phone. My new peeve is the LFG group for Trial of the Crusader, for which people use the acronym ToC. It should either be TotC or just TC. You can't just leave out anything you feel like. That's why there are language rules, so we don't descend into a real life version of Idiocracy. We're dangerously close already, and the grammar nazis are sadly the last line of defense. I understand people probably won't change at all, which is all right. It's their privilege to look as stupid as they want on WoW.As for achievements, I think it's kind of stupid. It devalues the whole system when I can't walk through town or buy some materials without setting off a tard alarm in that zone.

To ALL grammar Nazis out there. As a Dyslexic i find someone continually stating THATS WRONG gives me (and many others) a continual sense of enjoyment. I even make my spelling deliberately bad (esp when posting about rouges on a rogue blog), just to egg them on. Language is a tool to be used. Many words we now use - in fact most - were originally not IN the language, and grammar/spelling nazi's would have denied anyone the use of those words if they had their way (like the word quiz - was introduced by ONE man as a bet - look it up if you dont believe me). If you understand what they are trying to mean, then imo its wright, as its done the purpose for which it was intended.Anyhows, hopes u all likz thus litle speek. Enjy
