Subject: you're welcome/toy's for sale

A couple of thoughts:

1. In addition to "You're welcome" evaporating, "Thank you" is losing

ground to "Thanks," which seems more impersonal.

2. I am constantly finding apostrophes used to indicate plurals, both

in the northeast US and in South Florida. I think this has a lot to do

with some people's annoying habit of using all caps.
