Perhaps you know a few person’s who do horrible thing’s like this to innocent noun’s and verb’s on Facebook and other Internet site’s.

Thanks for the reminder, Grammarly.

I nearly broke my brain to bring you that example sentence. You’re welcome (or, in the spirit of this post, your welcome).

Internet grammar is the bane of my online existence. We all went through second grade. We all were taught that possessive nouns use apostrophes; plural nouns get an s with no muss, no fuss and no fanfare. Eat this advice. Digest it.

Please don’t let me catch you using the Internet apostrophe. You have been warned.
