Let me emphasise that this is not a complaint about the edit made to http://genealogy.stackexchange.com/a/1958/70 by @Luke.
In that answer I referred to my opinion that Dick Eastman was "sceptical" about a claim; which he would be if he were writing where I read it (in Australia). Luke realised (in fact, he probably realized) that as a US resident Dick would have been skeptical.
Without wishing to colour the conversation, the issue at the centre of my concern is that this site has a world-wide audience and world-wide contributors. The English language has taken on different flavours across the globe and there are going to be differences of opinion in how words should be spelt.
What is appropriate response to seeing a word that would be non-standard where you were schooled?
