typo ho

OK, so maybe I'm in a cranky and/or overly pedantic mood today, but I've been noticing typos all over the place. Not funny typos like this one, but just repeated mistakes of English that I seem to see at an alarmingly increasing rate.

So, Apu's recent post inspired the following question:

What typo(s) irritate you the most? Please reply.

Here are two of mine:

- point of you (instead of point of view)
- intensive purposes (instead of intents and purposes)

EDIT: In light of Tori's point that the above examples aren't really "typos," feel free to rephrase the question as "What blatant examples of gross ignorance irritate you the most?"
