I'm not a teacher, or a writer. In fact, I was horrible in English and Spelling classes in school. But I fall under the "I'll know if it's not right when I see it" category.
The only place I make a decided effort to be obnoxious about correcting a writers grammar is on Cultofmac.com and 9to5mac.com. I do so because both sites feature the most ignorant jackasses on the entire web—and appear to be having a competition to see which site can make the most blatantly obvious typos, grammar, and factual errors in their articles.

The midwest certainly has it's own plural 2nd person: you guys, with the possessive being you guyses'. I hear it in my office among other American teachers. Drive me batty, but I kind of like to hear how people find a way around the limitations of English (such as not having a plural 2nd person).

I miss the good ol' Boston townie-speak, But Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC sometimes lapses into it for effect. Like using wicked as a synonym for extremely. Although he's never used the full phrase for extremely great, which is wicked pissah!
