Not only do you make inconsiderate remarks about other posters, you're
inconsiderate of the other readers. In case you're not aware of it,
readers from other countries might think you're daft when you talk about
regulations, because you didn't qualify them by stating where you're from.
----------------(from OED Mini-Dictionary)-----------------
PUNCTUATION - Apostrophe
Incorrect uses: (i) the apostrophe must not be used with a plural
where there is no possessive sense, as in ~tea's are served here~;
(ii) there is no such word as ~her's, our's, their's, your's~.
Confusions: it's = it is or it has (not 'belonging to it'); correct
uses are ~it's here~ (= it is here); ~it's gone~ (= it has gone);
but ~the dog wagged its tail~ (no apostrophe).
