    Its it's
    There Their
    Lose -> Loose
    Your You're

    Sample sentence(s):
    Their are so many whiners its not funny. When you loose your a loser, period.

    Let's see.. What else? Maybe I should take a look around gamefaqs, I'm sure I'll find tons of them.

    As bad as those spelling mistakes are, lack of punctuations and TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS FAR MORE ANNOYING.

    I know a lot of people that type 'remeber' instead of 'remember'. When you're typing fast that's a weird word to get right.
