    OP is probably wishing they had never asked the question. We went from answering the question to a grammer review.

    Yeah I have the same problem, but it is possible to edit the auto-correct dictionary, there used to be an app to do it, you could just remove that entry.

    But like the general opinion shows grammatically "its" and "it's" are completely different meanings when writing, along the other lines of synonyms. You'd never write "it's the principal (school official) of the matter!"

    It's not an "opinion" though, but a grammatical rule.
    The analogy you're looking for is you'd never write:
    "Whose that guy?" or
    "I don't know who's Pre that is."

    As mentioned above via a link:
    It's is a contraction for it is or it has. Its is a possessive pronoun meaning, more or less, of it or belonging to it.

    Now we just need someone to accuse someone else of being a ****, and the thread is complete.

    Oh, auto-censor kicked in making it look like I was being much more rude than I was. The '****' was a contraction of 'National Socialist', if that helps.

    Looks like I have been wrong for 50 years. I won't continue to use it after all. Thanks for setting me straight.

    In that case:
    It's grammar, not grammer.

    Start a sentence with a capital letter.
    End a sentence with a period.
    Use a verb.
