To bloggers from the UK or other places that use the British-type spoken English (sorry, I don't know the technical term for it):
Does it annoy you that large-scale websites such as Blogger, Google, and other search engines have tabs that say 'favorites' instead of 'favourites'? Or that most printed information on the web speaks of practices, colors, and checks instead of practises, colours and cheques? Or does it matter at all, as long as you can understand what is being said?
This is just something I randomly wonder about...I usually use British spellings when I blog or handwrite anything. I honestly don't know why. Maybe I'm just rebelling against the fact that a lot of Americans are unwilling to learn another language, while English is fast becoming the language of trade and commerce the world over. While British English is just as understandable as American English, it's just a little different, and I like to use it. Or maybe my fascination with the countries of the UK has just boiled over into my writing.
So, thoughts or opinions anyone?
