Yea, that wasn't as clear as I thought. I've had my head in code for a couple of hours, not so good at talking to humans just now.

'Reversion' is the one that grates. Conversion seems fine to me.

Fair enough. I know what you mean. All I'm saying is that "deconversion" grates on me for the same reasons.

You might be interested to know that here in Britland, we say "couldn't care less" and "regardless". We also have the far superior "addictive" instead of "addicting".

Yea, but you put a 'u' in everything, call 'z' 'zed', and don't use them anyway.

I sympathise with the lack of colour in your use of our language, but I assure you that "zed" makes numerous appearances within the British zeitgeist.

I wish American spelling would go more towards the British. Lousy differences.

I'm just taking the piss out of you anyway. I prefer the Queen's English myself, when I can remember to use it.

As y'all know, it's hella hard to ditch Americanized versions, ain't it?

For a time, I set my Firefox default dictionary to British English. I should do that on my mobile.
