I have 6 Unicorns and Dragon in my back garden.This must be fact and I don't need to prove this to you because I don't claim to have any proof. But what I say is still true
I corrected someone for saying "tell, tell" instead of "tell-tale" and then said that he should not be trying to use a word or phrase that he doesn't know the meaning of. I used the common example of idiots who think that "'ve" = "of" as an example of people who make that same mistake of using a words that they don't know the meaning of. Seriously. What does "could of" MEAN in that context? NOTHING! It means "have" because it IS "have," and not "OF."
This comes primarily from the practice of pronouncing a double contraction that you would never write, like "couldn't've." "Hadn't of" is the most extreme example because, when corrected, it basically means "had not have," which is redundant (had not stands alone). It being wrong was exactly my point.
If you don't know what you are saying, why are you saying it? That's the same questsion I have to ask all of the "could/would/should/hadn't of" people. It's HAVE, not OF!
Let me put it this way: If I quoted you saying that "...'hadn't of' if very poor english" and said "Hey, feidhlim1986: 'hadn't of' is poor English," then I'd be doing the same thing to you that you did to me. You could quote me and chance "feidhlim1986" to CZroe and we could go on correcting each other for infinity.

I spend a lot of time in both the US and the UK, I see the same iPhone commercials in both countries except for one difference. In the US you briefly get an 'Only on AT&T' clip and in the UK until recently you got an 'Only on O2' page. Saw the same ad in France too with 'Only on Orange'.
Plus the ads stink (in a good way, of course) of Apples marketing technique.
Oh, in relation to another answer on the topic. I'll drop this here too...
