I note, Sir Creep, that you have posted elsewhere, but not responded to this, I shall therefore consider myself amongst the most winningest posters here (argh, that actually hurt phantom, I see your point).

 

*ugh* that word!

You say American English like it's a bad thing.
En Passant they say use a new word three times in a day and it's yours forever. I say bullshit--a word I'll be using 20x today.

Bad? Not particularly. Let us merely say it is cross-Atlantic badinage. 

And on that note, the language is actually called English, this site is in the UK and therefore as a matter of courtesy if nothing else, one should not attempt to stomp all over local customs with ones own version of them. When and if I post to a site in the US, I shall happily spell the likes of color, medalist, or even heaven help me, aluminum as asked (if it ever comes up). ;)

 

 

One word to surely make me cringe everytime, especially when it comes from the mouth of a newsreader, is "winningest".
