I'm not perfect at spelling, but on forums, etc., where people make the common mistakes such as:

Your when it should say you're
There when it should say their

and vice versa!

Ooh, and I HATE this new word at the end of a comment:

Simples :gr: :gr: :gr:

Anybody else want to add common spelling mistakes/grammer?
Nothing to look at here :)

I agree - your/you're is my #1 bugbear too.
But I don't notice there/their very often - MY #2 would be "of" instead of "have", as in "I would of got angry".

I guess there WAS a time when "writing" was the preserve of "writers", but these days anyone can "write". Oh well, sadly one just gets used to flinching INWARDLY but turning a blind eye - otherwise there'd be no communication at all.

As for "Simples" - what the heck is that ? I've no idea.

(And yes, of course, I spotted your "deliberate error" instantly - grammEr indeed! LOL)
