There will definitely be something which will be affected which should of been thought of before though.

 ;D I've just come across one that would be affected while reading about article 50. It would of course have a negative affect on saying 'would of course'  :(

I'm all for correct grammer, it makes reading much easier but shouldn't the suggestion have been

Should have, would have, could have?

I know it's all in the context of the sentence but most of the time when people use "of" the correct word should be "have".

It was for the incorrect usage to be corrected to the correct usage.

Any time someone uses an apostrophe before the letter s, can we get a message board prompt asking "Are you sure you really want to put that apostrophe there?"

Would there not be a comma after the 'would' and after the 'course'? Can somebody confirm this?

You do know you've effectively applied for a ban there, Barney.
