"would of", "could of", "should of", "irregardless", "a whole nother" and "all of the sudden" make me want to choke someone non-erotically.

i believe i've said something like that, forgive my shitty grammar. please  :embarassed:

"null and void" isn't too bad, but it's redundant.

Null & Void are definitions, in coding languages.

I thought that in proper British English it was would have done, could have done, should have done; only we rebels even abbreviate to would have, could have, should have (or, more likely, coulda, shoulda, woulda).

That would depend on the verb you're using...

If it's "to do", then would have done etc...

If it's.... fly => would have flown...

shop?  would have shopped...

OK, OK, how 'bout from what I've heard, Brits provide the entire verb phrase, rather than letting the helping verbs try to stand on their own...that work for you?

Hmmm....  I'm not certain what you mean, but I'm certain that Brits make grammatical
and syntax errors just like the rest of us.

We're about a hundred times better, because if we fuck up we can just turn round and say, "Sod you, it was our language first, we can do what we want with it." XD

I don't know if these have been mentioned or not, I can't be bothered reading all 10 pages.. lol.

"yous", you is the plural of you! It really irks me when people say yous.
"writ", instead of wrote or written.
"sweeped"
"catched"

Umm.. can't think of anymore.

'brang' is not a word. Like when someone says they 'brang' something with them.
It's not a word.
