    Whoops, forgot that this ain't a game. Fixed it to keep the seriousness of this issue untainted.

    That's not right? It's possessive isn't it? The forum belongs to it, so you put an apostrophe like you would if you wrote ED's forum. Or is that wrong?

    "Its" signifies belonging.
    "It's" is always an abbreviation for "It is".

    I only learned that last week.

    According to the lesson I had yesterday objects can possess other objects so the apostrophe is right.

    Another forum thread discussing this

    Also, 'phone is apparently meant to have an apostraphe in front of it since it's the shortened word for telephone.

    So why is it the only word in the english language that doesn't use an apostrophe in the possessive form?

    Same reason you wouldn't write "her's" "our's" or "their's"

    Actually that's a bad example. It's just one of those things.
