I two yoosed to bee pedantique abought grammer & spelling !
Seriously though, language is constantly evolving and changing-just look at the way people spoke/wrote 100/200/300 years ago.
Was taught English grammar in the 50s & 60s-find it difficult to have a conversation with some modern kids with their excessive use of "like" & "innit"  :lol

Surely Yoda isn't the best person to be giving advice on grammar. :)

I have to agree with you Dave. My pet hate hates are: 'I seen', 'I done' and the excess use of 'basically'  :rolleyes

Nick, looks like you will have to give Frosties a course in English grammar correction. :lol

Use an apostrophe-s to denote a plural do you? Teach you we shall. Clear the rules are. To indicate the possessive or contraction it is used only. Required apostrophes are not when you want to pluralise.
