Lose the Loose!

Man! The utter neglect of respect to grammar and spelling on the internets is driving me crazy! I was reading this post on the Consumerist, and saw multiple misuses of loose (vs. lose).

If nothing else people, learn the proper usage of these two words!

v 1: fail to keep or to maintain; cease to have, either physically or in an abstract sense; "She lost her purse when she left it unattended on her seat"

1: not restrained or confined or attached; "a pocket full of loose bills"; "knocked the ball loose"; "got loose from his attacker"

This is not that difficult. Make an effort...sheesh!
