Lack of grammar captured in all its glory…

Okay, so when did this change because when I was a kid in the 80s and a teen in the 90s writing “it’s” like this for a possessive would’ve been considered correct. And if I had written it as “its” I would’ve gotten a big red mark saying how I was wrong.
And keep in mind this was every single teach I had from when I started kindergarten in 1981 until I graduated in 1995.
I remember being taught to substitute “it is” for “it’s” in grammar school if there was any doubt about which one to use, and I graduated three years after you did. It’s is a contraction, not a possessive.
The possessive “its” has no apostrophe. Just like “hers” and “his” don’t have apostrophes. (Or apostrophe’s, if you went to school with jami.)
Which planet was your school on? I grew up in the same era and being able to interchange “its” and “it’s” was never a thing. Scalawag!
Superfluous apostrophe’s, quotation “marks,” AND capitalization are “ALL” a “supermassive” problem.
Its annoying when people do that, irregardless of it’s location.

That doesn’t change the fact that no matter what your profession or field of expertise, you come off as less intelligent, competent and reputable if you can’t master basic grammar to convey your knowledge.
Apostrophes goin’ rogue!
