Everyone's means everyone IS. Just like it's means it IS. If you say its fur is wet (referring to a dog or whatever), you do not use and apostrophe. You only use an apostrophe in this situation:
It's raining--It is raining.
You believe that "everyone's" cannot show possession the way "Jim's or "the teacher's" can?
Do you think "Common rudeness in forums today is everyone's problem" is incorrect?
Anonymous:Wrong right back at ya. "Everyone's" is correct because it's being used for the possessive case of indefinite pronoun (which should be formed in the same way as the possessive case of a noun), for example, "It is everyone's responsibility."
