I routinely excoriate students for committing the grammatical sin of using "it's" as the genitive of "it". I should be more forgiving, since I have two Apple products that automatically "correct" words for me. Apple products obligingly replace "its" with "it's" every time I type that word. It drives me mad. Apple also helpfully replaced "sinless" with "aimless". That's not a bad replacement, given that sin is missing the mark, which one tends to do when one fails to aim. 

Aimlessly and sinlessly yours,
