"You're" should be "Your" (unless you have some strange relationship with John LeCarré's character George Smiley  ;) ).

And it should have a full stop at the end! But us native speakers are (mostly) very flexible and forgiving with our own mistakes ;)

"flexible and forgiving" in my case also means that I know much more grammar rules in foreign languages than I do in English (my native language) - and my foreign language grammar is not *that* good...

Unless it's taken to be in the imperative mood, in which case it's an order for the other person to do it.

To write rite isn't quite right in this situation.  It shouldn't take a wright to correct it, how ever.
