    Their are some members that need to be reminded of they're usage of these three homonyms because there always using them incorrectly...

    They're = THEY ARE going to play ball.
    Their = It is THEIR ball.
    There = The ball ended up over THERE.

    If all of their communication is verbal, then no one knows the difference, however in written communications improper usage is highly visible...

    Don't forget to, too, and two.

    I've lost count of how many times I've seen these words all screwed up. Not so much with two. Most people seem to know when they're talking about numbers, but the other two words seem to be a major source of confusion for some people.

    to meaning toward (direction): She went to the store.
    too meaning also or in addition to: I like apples and oranges, too.
    two meaning twice, more than one and less than three: There are two ways to do most things.

    I fear that the English language will continue to be "simplified" over the decades. Who/whom have apparently been given up on by society so they're/there/their will likely be next.

    Its poor grammar that effects people the wrong way, and strikes a cord with me. Irregardless, I can insure you that my grammar is alright, and probably exceptionable.

    By the way, no one feeling nauseous should drive, as they might cause a wreak.

    Can we also add it's and its? The apostrophe marks a contraction of "it is." Something that belongs to it is "its."

    Of course you're being funny.

    "Its"
    "effects"
    "Irregardless"
    "insure"
    "exceptionable" (Is that a word at all?)
    "wreak"
