Pedants' corner

You're and your

This is driving me mad. Is anyone else noticing that more people are starting to use 'you're' when it should actually be 'your'??

I did a stupid quiz on Facebook recently and every time there should have been a 'your' it was 'you're'! It's as if the message has been received about not using your to mean you are, so now they think it should be you're instead.

I love pedantry! I really miss it now being a SAHM as there was a great bunch of fellow-pedants in my office.
