    I could name tons of them, but I'll throw out the one bothering me today:

    Using "are" for "our" (I live in Ohio...people are stupid here...they actually get these two words confused).

    I'm not sure spelling mistake is the right phrase to use...not sure what to term it. Didn't want to say literary mistake...not trying to get into commas and semi-colons and various other literary mistakes. Just words that people misspell or confuse.

    You're vs Your. More of a grammar mistake than a spelling mistake.

    Loose / lose. Remember this handy phrase. "You always lose with a loose asshole".

    Good call...don't think I can change the title, but if a mod wants to, feel free to change to "grammar".
