Hi, last week I visited the youth club of a small German town and they had this poster on the wall:
Do you think the “it’s” is just a typo or did the manufacturer make this mistake on purpose?[YSaerTTEW443543]

Do you spend your free time looking for English errors, Torsten?
And wouldn’t “manufacturer” of a poster be more idiomatically found as printer or artist?
Since you touched this “touchy” subject ;), I’d like to twaddle about a guy from the UK who works for the same company I do.
He always writes something like this “it’s component must be removed”.
I wonder if he’s illiterate, or just sloppy in his ways of writting
In my book, drawing a distinction between “it’s” and “its” is one of the easiest parts of English. It’s much harder to figure out when we use “a” or “the” or leave a blank space
I wonder if he’s illiterate, or just sloppy in his ways of [color=red]writting.
BTW, Torsten, I suggest you check the typo in your title.
By the way, does anyone of you happen to know who issued those posters and when? Was it the Commissioner of the US Bureau of Narcotics in the 40ies?[YSaerTTEW443543]
