Comment Re:Lots of claims are being made about it's virtue (Score 1) 417

A properly placed apostrophe has its virtues as well. it's means it is.

Or it has.

It's amazing that people that can learn dozens of languages all more complex than the previous can't seem to grasp the humble apostrophe.

I violently agree. The rule is very simple: If you mean "it is" or "it has" then you can write "it's". Otherwise, it is "its". Why so many out there seem to be unable to comprehend such a simple idea is something deserving of a study.
