    When you surround a people with examples of poor grammar by way of incorrect signs, poor grammar will ensue.

    Besides, changing "St. Paul's Church" to "St. Pauls Church" doesn't make sense from a grammatical standpoint: did more than one St. Paul exist, and does this church pay homage to all of them?

    "Apostrophes denote possessions that are no longer accurate, and are not needed. If I want to go to a restaurant, I don't want to have an A-level (high school diploma) in English to find it."

    The logic of this is very difficult to follow. Why shouldn't grammar be applied correctly, and people expected to learn it? Besides, if someone can't find a restaurant without "an A-level", then maybe that person should go to "McDonalds" instead.
