I agree with Michael Lewis. I will abide by the decision Eric made, but I
find it unfortunate that we cannot discuss differences between the Canadian
and American spelling of words. Technical translators are certainly
technical communicators, and differences in spelling is certainly a topic we
are faced with practically on a daily basis. I therefore feel it should be
an acceptable topic for this list to discuss and bounce ideas around.

My views are my very own.
