20:55 mwn3d_phone Have you ever seen the aluminum/aluminium arguments on wikipedia? Pretty funny. A good indicator of how dumb arguments can get on the internet.
20:56 mikemol I noticed there's a mixture of American vs British spellings in some areas of RC. I'm not yet to the point of caring, but it'll pop up eventually...
20:56 mwn3d_phone There are a few camps it seems: "let's compromise on 'alumin(I)um
20:56 dagnyscott No, but I got in a heated argument in a World of Warcraft server IRC channel by defending someone's writing instructor for saying that you should use American spelling in America
20:57 * mikemol ponders
20:57 mwn3d_phone ...to continue the camps after my fat finger problem..."let's go with IUPAC" (eventual winner), "screw you my country is better", "WP gets more hits from the US", and "trolololo"
20:57 dagnyscott Luckily we didn't get into aluminum. Probably someone would have got punched through the internet.
20:58 mwn3d_phone mikemol: yeah I already ran into something with paddy about "while" and "whilst"
20:59 mwn3d_phone I didn't even know that was a british thing
21:00 mwn3d_phone I don't think it'll cause problems unless someone uses slang terms specific to a particular variant of english
21:00 mwn3d_phone And even then only if its on task descriptions and explanatory text
21:01 mwn3d_phone Paddy uses "ta" in talk pages and edit summaries all the time
21:02 mwn3d_phone dagnyscott: if only I could punch people through the internet...
21:04 mikemol It'd be nice if MW's search mechanism's text matching compensated for common syllable differences. '$(:consonant)or' vs '\1our', that kind of thing.
21:04 mwn3d_phone We need funding :p
21:06 mwn3d_phone I feel like we have a bunch of problems that could be solved with a months worth of an intern/grad student
