Yes, the title is an example. What is the deal with the seemingly huge and ever increasing amount of people who have no clue as to when to use an apostrophe? I see it everywhere. Web forums. Blogs. Restaurant menus. Ads. Signs. About the only places I don't see it regularly are mainstream newspapers and books. I generally cut people some slack for misspellings, or poor grammar (though "should of", "your" for "you're", and "then" for "than" drive me batty). But misplaced apostrophes seem to be spreading like a virus, and it's maddening. And what mystifies me is that in the current abbreviated text-speak landscape of "lol" and "ur awsum", adding an apostrophe where it doesn't belong takes more effort. Are we getting dumber? Is basic punctuation no longer being taught in schools? Or has it always been his way, and the internet merely magnifies the problem? You're thought's?
