Just a little education for those of you who may be a little confused, whether or not you are aware of it. :smoke:

Who's: A contraction of 'who is'
Ex. Who's a grammar nazi?

Whose: A possessive form of whom.
Ex: Whose fault was it I became a grammar nazi?

A sentence using both: Who's sure whose briefcase it is?

It's similar to their vs. they're, and its vs. ut's respectively.

Knowledge is power.



Who's able to see the irony here? :cool:

Lol. I bet everyone is double checking their post before submitting. No one would want to get schooled by Tony.

Agree totally.

It's frustrating because I often have to read something several times before it makes any sense. Back up, re-read, WTF? :mad: Sometimes I just give up and move on.

Another thing: I don't give a shit how intelligent someone may actually be, if they're barely literate THEY APPEAR TO BE STUPID.

It is also slightly annoying when people mix up whether/weather.

Accept vs. Except.
They are two different words and are not interchangeable.
