Right...but it's not like the "its/it's" situation where the distinction is arbitrary.

you ask how people screw that up.

the answer is they sound the same, and people don't realise they've made the mistake. also, people may or may not be aware that they mean different things.

it's no less arbitrary than its and it's.
