Features, Office Since everybody in the technology world is apparently having a vacation, and nobody told me about it, we're kind of low on news. As such, this seems like the perfect opportunity to gripe about something I've always wanted to gripe about: a number of common mistakes in English writing in the comments section. I'll also throw in some tidbits about my native language, Dutch, so you can compare and contrast between the two.

"Should of"

You forgot one of the stupidest errors ever: should of. People use that in place of "should have".

Once you tell them it's wrong, they say it's shorter than "should have" and hence faster to type (they use only one finger?). Tell those 'tards there's a shorter form, "should've", and they just start whining how it still sounds like a legit thing.
