    He, She, You are Chinese surnames, which easily leads to a Who's on First situation in written English without any of these shenanigans.

    The company has apparently trademarked "their" in lowercase, guaranteeing endless squabbling over whether outside writers should capitalize it: always? never? only at the beginning of a sentence? See craigslist, eBay, etc. All the more reason for a hate-buyout!

    There's already a website called "them", so if "their's" were the possessive form of "their" then "them's" would be theirs.
