For all the people who are so worried that other people want to change the ways words are spelled, maybe y'all should do a little research for yourselves. I agree with the poster who pointed out the irony in this thread.
Noah Webster (October 16, 1758 – May 28, 1843) was an American lexicographer, textbook pioneer, spelling reformer, political writer, editor and prolific author. He has been called the "Father of American Scholarship and Education." His blue-backed speller books taught five generations of children in the United States how to spell and read, and made elementary education more secular and less religious. In the U.S. his name became synonymous with "dictionary," especially the modern Merriam-Webster dictionary that was first published in 1828 as An American Dictionary of the English Language.
