Well, I'm kind of up on the fence, regarding whether or not to allow
Swedish emails. See, I'm half Svensk (Swedish), and Half Norsk, and I
remember the saying "77 Swedes ran thru the seeds, chased by one
Norwegian." But in your case, I think I'll make an exception. ;-)
----------------(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).
