Dropping the ne explétif in speech.
Please could you confirm that in speech, the ne explétif can be dropped.

Indeed in speech, the 'ne' is rarely used and it can sound precious.
You will hear -
"J'en sais rien", instead of, "Je n'en sais rien" = I haven't got a clue
"J'sais pas" instead of "Je ne sais pas" = I don't know
