Humor Since I think we haven't been having enough fun lately on OSNews, I decided it's time we do something fun for a change. We all have our little pet annoyances when it comes to other people's comments. Fixed expressions or comment styles that annoy the living daylights out of you. Here are mine.

I'm Norwegian too, and I believe we were thought the difference between it's and its in fourth grade. I'm sure then/than was mentioned at some point too. ;)

That being said, if people keep correcting your small mistakes, you should probably take it as a compliment. They probably do not realize they're talking someone whom native language isn't English. From what I've seen, people who obviously don't speak English very well don't usually get the same "grammar nit-picking" replies.
