Sometimes the issues with English conventions and usage in these forums feels like an itch I can't scratch because I don't want to be a jerk and tell people their spelling sucks. So I decided to scratch that itch here by showcasing a few common errors on these forums in the hopes that a few of my fellow homebrewing enthusiasts will notice the next time they use the wrong "your." Please feel free to add to this list.
Lose ≠ Loose. Your loose grip on spelling will make me lose my mind.
Your = belongs to you, You're = you are. You're unfortunate if your K-12 education didn't teach you this rule.
Pallet = the wooden shipping platform that gets carried by a fork lift. Palate = a person's appreciation of taste and flavor, among other things.
There's = there is, There're = there are. There're many reasons why you should learn proper English contractions, but there's always one dummy who forgets how to contract.
Now, for some advanced level punctuating:
1. That one brewer's stout was tasty.
2. Those two brewers' porters were both good.
3. Mr. Jones's amber ale was only mediocre.
