    j/k We have a running joke about these parts involving 'u's.

    I think that means I won, doesn't it?

    Damn American Imperialism knows no bounds. Even the spell checkers have been compromised.

    This is part of a larger programme to colour the opinions of people without honour. A gray-ops initiative of a specialised centre designed to initialise the corruption of the Queen's English!

    I hear the Chinese spellcheckers don't suffer from that problem.

    As an American working in London (for the Royal Navy), I am constantly confronted with this issue. "Whilst" in place of "while". "Programme" instead of "program". The list goes on and on.

    And it's true--spellchecker is American biased--the Brits just make do ignoring the red squiggly under half of the things they type in MS Word.
