This one is annoying as heck to me:

"I could care less" - hey, stoopid, that means you COULD care less.....it's "I could not care less" - emphasising how much you just don't care - so much so, it is impossible to care less....got it???!!!!!!

That is a pet peeve of mine also. However, it should be pointed out that the word spelled correctly, is "stupid".

Two other common errors of many posters are:

1. using the word "then", when the correct word should be "than" and vice verse.

2. using the word "your" when the contraction for "you are (you're) would be correct.

I hate it when people say "real talk."

I don't hate when they say it, I just hate the people.

How about rediculous? Is that some kind of separate meaning from ridiculous or did people just forget how to spell it? I can see "It's getting to be re-god-damn-diculous!" but other than that isn't it always spelled with an "i"?
