Are you bothered or annoyed whenever someone misuses a word (there vs. their, your vs. you're)?

Only if the misuse is in advertising, signage or any other publication. I feel like they're setting a bad example.

Even though I pick on mistakes out of fun - and my intention is fun - I understand that online discussions are a haven for such errors. Fast posts lead to no proof reading and autocorrect is no friend on a discussion board.

No. I think most of us know the correct usage; it just happens sometimes. Especially with autocorrect. It would be different in more formal writing - or even news articles online. Those people are supposed to be journalists, but I've seen dumb stuff.

Mostly bothered when I do it by accident. It's like, "come on, Self, you know better!"

Exactly! Or when autocorrect turns into a grammar troll...

Yes... It makes me want to correct them. It's such a simple thing to do, but there are certain underlying reasons why some people can't differentiate.

Haha, I guess that's one of them. Dyslexia and other learning disabilities are a few others.
