    I can handle one or two of those in any given post, especially if the author's native language isn't English, but if it isn't and the mistake is made consistently, I lose a bit of faith in said author. Then again, I don't confront people with their mistakes in fear of causing some major drama. Makes me feel like a douchebag too, even though in some cases I know for certain that I am right.

    *sigh* It's a complicated issue for me... (Had to correct "its" to "it's" though, I still make that mistake consistently).
