    From Time Magazine:

    Americans and Brits have argued over the English language for centuries, and not just about an extra u here and there. But according to Peter Martin, author of the Dictionary Wars: The American Fight Over the English Language, "they have always been able to understand their insults of one another."

    Perhaps, like a lot our youth, they prefer not to discuss issues "face to face", but on their cellphones/computers/tablets?
