I didn't see a Rant & Rave forum so I figured Skunk Works has the best chance of assimilating this load...
A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
TO MY BELOVED ATS FAMILY,
THERE is a difference between there, their, and they're. It appears that people with a flimsy grasp of these distinctions are now in the majority
and I just can't take it anymore!
Now class... Pay Attention!
THERE - "in", "at", or "to" that place. When referring to a LOCATION use "there".
THEIR - "belonging to" or "associated with" a group of people or things previously mentioned. When referring to People HAVING or OWNING something
THEY'RE - contraction of "they are". When describing a group or its actions, use "they're"
NOTE THESE EXAMPLES:
THEY'RE not having THEIR annual picnic over THERE this year.
THEY'RE crazy. THEIR beliefs are really out THERE!
THEY'RE not paying attention. THEIR usage of these words show's that THERE is very little original thought going on... in THEIR brains!
THERE, I feel better now.
