Hey Spell Check (in web browsers), Check Yourself!

It’s up to us to get web browsers to fix their spell checking software. They’re allowing prime marks (straight quotes) to be used in place of apostrophes and quotation marks. This is incorrect; it's considered type crime. We need to correct this!

Whenever you use a correct apostrophe in a contraction, to indicate possession, or omit letters or numbers it is often read by spell checker as incorrect — you’ll notice that in the featured image, it even goes as far as making a wrong suggestion (Look at the picture)!

Let’s draw some attention to this and rid the internet of this typographical crime.
