why do internet users always write "you're" instead of "your" and "your" instead of "you're"? it's like they're all thick!

So what would you have us write? And what do you mean by "it's like they're all thick!"?

It's basically just shorthand, I don't care what people do as long as it doesn't hurt my eyes, and I can read it.

I know that people often write "your" instead of "you're"but the other way around is much less common for sure.

I'd say people can't be bothered typing in the apostrophe :)

"Thick" basically means stupid. "Thick headed" - as in they just can't get it through their skull.

im guessing most of the people can either not be arsed to type the aphostrophe, or simply don't know they should, seeing english isn't their primary language.
