    Should that not be its' ?

    I fully believe in the necessity and power of choice. This includes choosing a forum such as this which is not inundated with political and/or sexual fervour (?). Tangential threads are expected, but I feel really sorry for those in the first stages of learning English being assaulted by such as we've seen here.

    Is this request now more palatable? Of course, it is your decision.

    Lastly, I would like to make a suggestion to a couple of you - How about trying the spellchecker sometimes? Getting into the habit of doing this could potentially make the world of difference when you need to resort to written English communications.

    Good luck in your endeavours.
    Night. [Gmt+2 here]

    No, it shouldn't. Its = possessive. It's = it has\is.
