You have 3 months to correct all your mistakes. :lol:


India sides with the rest of the Commonwealth, and has the most native English speakers in the world (Sorry America, you're not even half the number India has), so by that standard you need to throw out your Webster abominations on the Queen's English and come back to join the correct and true way of spelling.

But we're patient, and we understand things are a little hard for you poor Americans, and there's so much more you need to fix first, so we'll wait for you to adopt universal SI measurements, then become a true first world country (it's the little things, universal health care, universal education, taxation only on money earned in your own jurisdiction, a truely democratic system of government where everyone gets to vote and the will of the majority of voters is respected), the we'll let you attack the more advanced concepts, like English as the English spell it.

It's kinda hard to be political when one person just gets completely shut down.

Also thanks, and thanks to everyone else who's welcomed me!

This isn't political, it's the normal friction of the Whateley Authors as a few of us spell correctly, and the rest are corrupted by the evil mind control of Webster and his cult :p

No fair quoting Bernard Shaw, even if the purported quote is apocryphal and can't be found anywhere in his writings.

But I give you another witty Brit, Oscar Wilde: "We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language."

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.
