G'day John. As an Australian - and therefore a natural user of British spelling - I used to have a problem occasionally on CP. However during 2007 and 2008 it got sorted out (sorta) aided by the fact that one of the sysops at that time was Australian. He had the habit of reverting the American spelling back to his own with the comment: reverting your correct spelling to my correct spelling.
Obviously don't write about Pearl Harbour or American labour laws. By the same token you are allowed to jump on Sydney Harbor or NZ Labor Day from a great height.
By the way.....the "g'day" was not an affectation. It's my natural speech. My father had his law practice in George St. 2 minutes walk from Wynyard Station but he still said "cobber" and "mate" and "fair dinkum". I don't think he ever said "chicken" in his life but he loved a roast chook.
Go the Tahs!

- Hi Alan! Thanks for your message and interestingly enough I'm about to have a chook for supper tonight myself. I left Sydney when I was 10 so have become a bit more accustomed to NZ habits over AUS - for example I am fully converted to Marmite over Vegemite! As for the Tah's - I'm a cricket man myself. The World Cup had me torn in loyalty. JohnSelway 02:33, 27 June 2015 (EDT)
These are good times for the cricket loving Kiwi. It's a bloody good team. Go with that. AlanE 03:02, 27 June 2015 (EDT)
- Yeah but I'm more for the Aussies so the final result was pleasing to me. JohnSelway 19:07, 28 June 2015 (EDT)
Thanks. Your input made the article stronger
Thanks for offering your feedback to the atheism and poetry article.
As a result of your input, I added some material which made the article stronger.
Here is what I added:
In addition, the online book seller Amazon offers many books of Christian poetry as well as anthologies of Christian poetry (as of 11/30/2015 there were 61,064 search results for term "Christian poetry" at Amazon as far as soft cover and hard cover books being offered for sale to American consumers). On the other hand, the selection being offered at Amazon for atheist poetry was very limited (as of 11/30/2015 there were 123 search results for term "atheist poetry" at Amazon as far as soft cover and hard cover books being offered for sale to to American consumers and a great many of the books were not even books of atheist poetry).
- No worries Conservative, glad I could be of some help. JohnSelway (talk) 18:32, 1 December 2015 (EST)
