Hell yeah, that's another pet peeve of mine, too!

When someone does that, I think they mean the contraction. I can see how the words "should've," "could've," and "would've" sounds like "should of," "could of," and "would of," in their heads. When I first started seeing that in various places, it annoyed me to no end, but I can forgive it a little more than a lack of punctuation.
