Bugging me

Something that's really beginning to bug me in HP stories, mostly slash (because slash is what I mostly read) but I'm sure it applies to others, too. I know it's been mentioned before, but I've just got to get it off my chest.

Pomphrey. No, dickhead, it's Pomfrey.
Dumbledor. No, dickhead it's Dumbledore.
hoard/horde: a miser has a hoard of money, Gengis Khan had a horde of followers.
your/you're: your book, your pen, your unfortunate obsession with Snape. You're going to Hogsmeade, you're going to be expelled, you're an idiot who can't tell a possessive from usage of 'to be'.

Some days, I really wonder at the standard of education in the western world.
