    With 'color' you say the same thing with less letters, it's more efficient :)

    I only use "color" in HTML and POV-Ray, and occasionally in Scrabble if I don't have a U.

    "Colour" in all my actual writing.

    Okay, okay. Noah Webster had no business trying to mess up the English language. He should have just left it alone so people like us wouldn't have to worry about the correct spelling of "color" or "colour".

    Colour. The original, it worked fine, there was no need to change it.

    Everyone from Alaska to the tip of South America is an American. The US isn't the only America. Canadians are Americans too. So should the people in the US be called United Statesians?
