I think that the internet and especially the texting craze have contributed to the decline in spelling and grammar. When I was young, good spelling and neatness counted. What is bad is that in business, where I work plus other businesses I deal with, I often run across some truly illiterate phrases. Not very professional to say the least. What is strange to me is that most computers come with some form of spell checking and even syntax checking which I find helpful when I make a typo. By the way, contractions turn two words into one using the apostrophe. You're = you are. This should answer your question.
It's an improvement on Ur
Because they do not care!...You'll find that out after a while!
Does it matter?<br />
People complain about it so much. Who cares about other people's grammar? Not a big deal. They're not aspiring authors or editors; just average people sharing their lives on a public forum.
I think it's just ignorance. I know of a good friend who spells "Hate" as "h8" and "you're" as "ur" and it goes on forever. But what I don't get is that he knows how to spell correctly! He's written articles for me and they've been very good. Yet he continues to spell in this annoying way! I do admit that I have used "your" before. But only because I wasn't sure which one it was. But now I know.
I find bad grammar very sad, especially wrongly used reflexive pronouns. I think it does matter, but if people want to use sloppy language it is their loss, it just sounds so bad.
whatever makes for entertainment and or splendor. People express however they'd like.
Not everyone was taught by nuns who used rulers as a teaching aid
They just don't care.
They're just lazy maybe... -_-
Whiteangel was correct in her answer,this is not an exam.This site is for light fun,too many odd balls like you appear to be take it too far.
Maybe they were typing faster than they thought, maybe they don't know any better, or maybe they just missed it when they reread their writing.
i think it comes from texting on phones... i sometimes forget and type your instead of you're in emails to... hehe :)
why do people get lives instead of correcting other peoples grammar.
people do worst things....
yeah they are careless they don't care what they type. they don't make only this mistake there are plenty of ANNOYING mistakes
Because some of us were not given the privalage to go to college or Uni. I left school when I was 15 to go and find a job so my family could eat. My father was an alcholic and gambler.I think I am not doing pretty badly concidering the circumstances..
I find that a lot of people don't know how to spell anymore..
Ignorance never settles a question.
Part of time it is that people don't care and part of the time it is that they don't know any better. With the internet and texting, everyone types things as short as they can. I try to use the correct forms of words but sometimes, I just forget because I'm trying to type something in a hurry. I mentally corerct my mistakes and the mistakes of otehrs and move on.
