    I will often make the effort to change to spelling American in American chat servers as a courtesy. :p

    "Mom" is West Midlands dialect over here. I do agree it looks strange when someone's posting otherwise standard British English. But go around any churchyard in these parts and you'll see "Mom" on at least a few gravestones.

    I've been increasingly incorporating American English into my lexicon in recent times. "Pants" for trousers just feels easier to use and more versatile to me, for example. I just go with whatever feels better in each case.

    Apparently, HP Lovecraft insisted that the title of his story 'The Colour Out of Space' was spelt with the U. He was American, but he was also an Anglophile.
