But You're Not Protected from Grammatical Errors

When I first saw this image that Heidi uploaded to the Apostrophe Catastrophes facebook group, I thought it was an ad for condoms.

But apparently it's for anti-virus software. Bad advertising and bad grammar! Besides the obvious you/you're confusion, I think there should be some sort of punctuation after RELAX. A colon, perhaps? Let's ask Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

Thanks, Heidi!

I dunno: My protected is often knotted, feels kinda tight, keeps me from getting to sleep, so I'd welcome something that could relax it. What about yours?

Haha, "Your Protected" sounds like an Evanescence song or something.

Computer geeks are some of the most illiterate people on the planet, so this is no surprise.
