Seriously? You actually went there?
It's kind of a pity that the most common retort to that last point would automatically invoke godwin's law. Maybe I can think of a better one. Oh wait I got one! How about that it's an ad hominem attack and has no place in an actual argument.
Anyway, I know the difference between your and you're. Half the world knows the difference. I think it's fair to say that anyone who doesn't use "ur" is probably aware somewhere at the back of his mind that there is a difference. So why do people mess it up so much? Well here is an idea: Maybe because half the time, people try and focus on the content of the message then details about spelling and grammar, and just forget.
And yes, sometimes people's spelling and grammar can be so bad they are almost impossible to understand. Sometimes. But here is something you might want to think about: Did you konw taht poelpe can rceongzie msot wrods as lnog as the frist and lsat lteters are in the rgiht palce? It's ture.
Regardless, my point is not that it's a bad idea, but that it's unlikely to have much to do with the actual problem. And that point still stands.
TL;DR: Please do not patronize my attempt to contribute without actually debating my point. It makes me grumpy.
Edit: Though, to be be fair, that code optimization might help the problem is a valid point, but the post made it look like using long addresses is the direct cause, which it is not.
