Never mind creating the most mind-blowing web experience imaginable, if there's an obvious spelling mistake in the middle of it, your credibility drops dramatically.

Well, I thought about calling out his your/you're issues, but figured I'd leave it to someone else. :p

Here's an extra one: Ten words you need to stop misspelling (http://theoatmeal.com/comics/misspelling)

Every time you spell it this way, a dolphin gets run over by a jet ski.

I like the drawing.

word #11: necessary

in a perfect world, there’d also be typographical apostrophes and quotation marks.

Hah, its funny though. No really it is, I didn't even cover the proper use of an apostrophe until I was in college. I kid you not, this content was not covered in my elementary or secondary classes. Meh, I guess by the time you're 25 you just don't really care when you realize you've done it wrong all along. Glad I wasn't taking english at that point O.o

We used to have it drummed into us from infant school onwards, back when teachers used to give a monkeys regarding correct use of the English language.

I can’t remember having much of the “advanced” grammar in school either (admittedly, apostrophes never played a key role in my life)
