"Your" vs "You're"

Most  everyone get these wrong:

Use "you're" when you could say "you are".  Such as:
"You're coming over to the ANTENNA raising party aren't you?"

NOT - "Your coming over ....."

(I am not going to sign this.  I don't want the flames!   AND my email
address is no good - hi.)

Flames?  You're (you are) doing us a favor, Mr. Language Person!  Now,
when are you going to take on affect Vs. effect?

One more for this silly thread!

I recall in HS people (mostly girls - probably because guys didn't write)
would start off a note to a friend with "High!" as opposed to "Hi!". Duh.
Only thing I can figure is that they were!

 Granmmer??
 I used to work in the EE Deparment at a state U.
I was looking over the syllabus for a specific tyrannical EE
professor's course where is admonished students, " And correct
spelling and grammer will be considered in grading all work."

The problem here is its "GRAMMAR"
Quite a chuckle on the old prof!

 And every generation of old farts has always said this. Yet
young people today can intellectually whip the asses of just
about anyone.
Also its not the educational system. The same material is
carefully taught and retaught, only to be carelessly unlearned by
in different students.

A lot of folks seem to learn just *one* way to spell
 their ,
 there , and
 they're   --  then use that one spelling consistently.

Ditto for "hear" and here".   And a number of others....

Then we have the fellers that use keyboards sans punctuation keys.

AND DO NOT FORGET THE RTTY FOLKS THAT POST IN THESE NGS EITHER

American public education.  sigh...
I once was embarrassed that people in foreign lands were watching
the TV shows that we had.  Now (thanks to the internet) I am
embarrassed that people, whose first *and* second languages are *not*
english, can see our level of (il)literacy.

In the 1960's we put men on the moon with equipment designed
mainly by slide rule.  We haven't done it since.  
But, we have had 'educrats' fiddle with the education system
that accomplished that feat.

Alas.

Lumpy adds:
High John...;-)I remember that too (note correct
use of too). I also note that on my stove, the
dial says "Hi" not "High". I always considered
it just a friendly way for the stove to great me.

PS - Purists will argue that the dial on my stove
     doesn't actually 'say' anything, it's printed.

Should be "Also it's ..."

I haven't figured out what is meant by "unlearned by in different
students"

My personal favorite is the Eagle Scout application I reviewed where the
applicant wrote that he was on the school's "honor role."
