    Not having English as my first language, I’d say that it makes me unbiased in a way that neither you nor any Americans are.

    To me, spelling "favorite" with a "u" seems awkward, clumbersome and plain out-of-date. This is the 21st century and it’s time to move forwards – leave the pride behind yourselves and streamline your language. It’s in everyone’s interest – including your own.
