People should really learn the difference, it's not difficult.

The one that really gets me is "of" instead of "have"

That said although it can be infuriating I don't think people should fear the Grammar Police. If somebody is desperate for help and information it can be off putting to get picked on for such issues.

Exactly. I mean, there not difficult to get right, are they? I have one thing to say about people who get them mixed up: their idiots.

The differences are pretty obvious- I don't believe it's that unreasonable to expect people to know the difference. I'm not sure I'd say a grammar test to use the internet But I do think it is something that people tend to notice (at least I do, and would think the mistake would be pretty obvious to a lot of people).

It's really obvious what the difference is but I have messaged people who use them all interchangeably but I don't think there should be a grammar test to use the Internet

What I certainly would do is ban people who can not write plain simple English from going to university.

people who don't use the correct grammar should be completely ostracised from society

This really annoys me, like those who do not know the difference between you're and your.

That said even though I do know the difference I have occasionally used the wrong one when typing in haste. When I read it back I will edit it though.

When people don't know the difference between to and too
"I love you to"
That annoys me so much

How about if they're reading Maths?

What irritates me more is when people correct other's pronunciation or grammar when they have clearly understood what the person is trying to say. If you really care that much than that is just sad. Is it so hard to believe that with so much use of technology that auto corrects most spelling/grammar mistakes, that people will stop caring to have perfect grammar on an anonymous forum. I guess if English was your second language, you lot wouldn't be so hard on other people.
