This is a BIG one, not only here, but in RW also, from what I've seen:

There - as in 'over there'
Their - it is a possesive, as in "it's their problem"
They're - contraction of 'they are'-'They're all against me.'

Some people are just no good at spelling, though. and it is not an indicator of overall intelligence.
