Grammatical pet peeves [I Hate Bad Grammar]

The following is a partial list of spelling and grammatical errors which annoy me:

• Questions written in the form of top ten list titles (e.g., "Why some people don't wear masks?" instead of "Why don't some people wear masks?").
• Apostrophe abuse.
• Spelling errors which cause the word to become another word (e.g., "DMX was a good raper.").
• Two is a number. Too means also. To means "in the direction of". Why is this confusing?
• There is a location. They're means "they are". Their means "belonging to them". Why is [i]this[/i] confusing?

What are some of yours?

I could care less. Not saying that about your pet peeves, this is mine. If I cared about something more than anyone else has ever cared about it, I COULD care less.

"Couldn't" is the proper expression, and actually makes sense

This is very classist. You are flaunting your education privilege.

[@426791,Wiseacre] I simply feel that if one is going to express oneself in a text-based forum, one should at least give the appearance of being more intelligent than a primary school dropout.
