Dhampy, you aren't going to find a single reference that says it's is possessive.

It's pointless and confusing, but that's English.

If you were five years older, you wouldn't have been polluted by public school English.

It's not English, it's just what you were taught.

One of the national teachers organizations thought you weren't smart enough to handle possessives and contractions looking the same, so they arbitrarily simplified it.

Like how they ****ed up math so now no one knows how to count.

Dhampy do you have a single link that can support your claim?

Rude? Seriously?

Perhaps you mistake being insulting towards public school teachers is the same as being insulting toward their students?

That being mildly annoyed at the perversion of a entire language simply for the sake of making it "easier" is rude?

Can you even spot one part where I spoke ill of you or Hyper?

No, you can't. Because there is no rudeness involved. And this is not being rude either, this is being forceful and abrupt.

I don't have to provide any links. The onus of proof is on the persons making the minority claim. Everyone who went through grammar school before the late 90s is against you.

I apologize for saying you were rude. I re-read your post and concluded it was aimed at the teachers, not the students (as you write yourself). I edited it before you replied.

As for who has to find proof of what: I'm really not interested in making this into an argument. I was hoping you had a link to back up your claim - so far all I've seen or heard to support your claim are your own words. Even if the onus is on me, it would be great if you had a link lying around or could point me in the right direction, thanks.

Any chance the grammatical rule for the word "its" has been changed since the 90's? Grammar and spelling does change once in a while. Perhaps "woot" will be added to the Advanced Learner's Dictionary at some point
