    To try and make this as non condescending, simple and straightforward as possible

    It just instantly annoys me when I see people just missing out 2 simple letters, how hard is it to type 're, or just 'You re'? It's SO EASY. What's so hard about just putting in the effort to move the muscles in your fingers, taking 2 seconds to type 3 keys on the keyboard...

    'It's yours' 'Your lucky' 'Your stupid' no, you're making yourself look a bit silly by spelling such a basic word wrong

    Simple. I don't think that all people that do that are stupid, 'your' just being lazy aren't you

    And yeah I know it's a minor gripe compared some eye destroying ways other people type online but still

    Why didn't make the effort to proofread your post? It's SO EASY. What's so hard about spending a few seconds making sure your post makes grammatical sense?

    Ha, there are quite a few things I could point out about your whole post that are wrong, such as the unnecessary capitalisation of 'your' and 'you're' in this thread's title. Technically I suppose in a title all words that aren't minor words like 'the' should be capitalised, but either way you're inconsistent.

    I won't point out any more, because I'm not a nob :')

    Without this coming across as patronising or anything, you believe that it's not hard for people to type an extra three characters and I believe that it's not hard for people to punctuate their sentences correctly...
