After the description of what you had on your plate, you made me hungry. Sounds crazy to think someone would be so offended by your personal preference. It's amazing how people can make an argument out of something so meaningless.

Many of those things you listed are variants from UK English, to American English - and I've actually argued, in the past, over the "u" in words like "colour" vs my American version, "color".
But they weren't bad arguments and were mostly well intentioned sarcasm matches. So I never really took them to heart. In the UK a kid would get yelled at for spelling it "color" - here the opposite is true.
Oh and I do apologize for misspelling catsup.
The amount of television usage by children reached an eight-year high, with kids ages 2 to 5 watching the screen for more than 32 hours a week on average and those ages 6 to 11 watching more than 28 hours. The analysis, based on the fourth quarter of 2008, measured children's consumption of live and recorded TV, as well as VCR and game console usage.
The general causes of information overload include:
-A rapidly increasing rate of new information being produced
-The ease of duplication and transmission of data across the Internet
-An increase in the available channels of incoming information (e.g. telephone, e-mail, instant messaging, rss)
-Large amounts of historical information to dig through
-Contradictions and inaccuracies in available information
-A low signal-to-noise ratio
-A lack of a method for comparing and processing different kinds of information
-The pieces of information are unrelated or do not have any overall structure to reveal their relationships
