The plural apostrophe will surely be the downfall of this country. I had hope that general progress would result in the replacement of the older, agrarian, "only go to school through 8th grade" component of our society with a more enlightened populace with better use of punctuation. But no...alas, the "inner city" has taken over, and as those older semi-literate white people die off, they are being replaced with people who are equally deficient. The 20% HS graduation rate is ensuring the survival of the plural apostrophe, like some kind of ancient, resurgent virus we only thought we had vanquished.
I would put in a word for you as the apostrophe cop. Hell, I might even enjoy that for an hour or so a day, myself. I'm guessing, though, that it would be just about like that 80's arcade game, "Asteroids." As Tron would attest, no matter how quick you'd shoot 'em down, they'd just keep coming.
