Be: Grendelkhan, please tell me who taught you the rules of English so I can have them euthanised lest they do any more damage. Quoth you - "'it's' means 'it is'" - have you never seen apostrophes used to denote possession? The page had it's content removed because the content belongs to the page, this is stuff they teach in grade school.

Chuckles: Practice what you preach dude:
Be: The page had it's content removed because the content belongs to the page etc etc...

Be: I...am? Was there some point you were trying to make?

  • The point is, you're wrong. Back to grade school for you.
    Writers of English commonly confuse the possessive form of the pronoun it with its compounded contractions. The possessive form (its) has no apostrophe, while the contraction of it is or it has does have an apostrophe (it's). The same is true of the possessive form of "you" (your) with its contraction you're for "you are". See List of frequently misused English words.
