>That's funny, it seems I've seen more of the exact opposite -- people
adding an apostrophe that doesn't belong, not deleting the one that should
be there -- both online and off.
That's been my experience also. Either way, whenever I see incorrect usage
-- whether adding an apostrophe to the possessive form or omitting it from
the "to be" form -- it really sticks in my craw. It's such an easy rule to
remember that it's very frustrating to see it goofed up.
