Pity the Poor Apostrophe

The long-suffering English language certainly does take a beating today - on EP and elswhere, particularly email.  I often wonder if the people who post here make mistakes because they're in a hurry, just don't care, or don't know better.  I imagine it's a bit of all three.  But if wheeze gun dew sum fin a boot it, den, we must said a egg sample fore dim what reeds us.

Very enlightening. Thanks for your story.

But w8, u sd nothing about the apostrphe!! Or did u and I missed it.? I agree w/ Nyxie 2, txting isn't hlpg the sitch 4 tru. I, at least have a qwerty kb on my moto droid, so tend to use less of the t9 sort of txting shortnings than I did when I ran with a razr phone. But, I want to hear more about the apostrophe. If you don't write it, someone else will... like ME! I have loads to say about it. Never mind. Your story's great. I think I'll see to giving the apostrophe some more face time soon though.
