    For the record i edited one of your post, but that was a long time ago. I can't recall at the moment what was the name of the thread though. Mea culpa. ^^

    Actually you can get the British Dictionary from Firefox add-ons like I have done and it works perfectly for me.

    So it is really necessary to use American spelling here on AO or am I allowed to continue to post using British spelling?

    Am I the only one who's posts get changed or does it happen to others too?
    I edited your post a couple of times, but it wasn't only for the British spelling. Sometimes i saw a word out of place or a word that should have been there. Like:

    "I don't really believe abortion, its like murder to me".

    In this case the in was left out.

    So it ain't the British spelling, wouldn't have corrected it just for that. Its just sometime the arrangement of the words didn't make sense totally.


    PS:I did change the colour to color.
