No it's not, Brits spell it "colour". It's also not irony. Don't post if you can't even do that bit of research correctly, you'll save us all a lot of facepalms.

I'm so effing confused...

Are we or are we not discussing a Brit who thought "colour" was misspelled as "color?" 'Cause that's what I got from it, and it's pretty damn funny.

Usually it's us "ignorant Americans" commenting on the opposite mix-up... but not this time, b*ches! ;) ;) ;)

No, we're discussing a man (who may or may not be British, but probably isn't) who intentionally joked that "colour" should be spelled "color" as a response to xyzyxx's statement that people often complain about the opposite.

Any further facepalms or corrections will just make people look like snobby Grammar Nazis.

I would pay hundreds of dollars to be involved in this beta. I've been watching this shit for years, waiting. I wants it.

Yes, the beta program has started without a single announcement in the News or Blog and miraculously this forum is entirely empty of topics relating to the end of the eternal silence surrounding this beta and people talking about how they wish they had been selected for the beta because they've been waiting their entire life to help the development of this game. It's like a ninja beta: it happens in mysterious ways without you ever knowing it was there.

I don't know about you but I'm quite enjoying the new Subversion Beta Testing subforum. Apparently it can only been seen if you're a selected beta tester though.

You really need to stop misleading people. It's still only a stable alpha and they're bringing in select Let's Players from YouTube to various abandonned warehouses that they're squatting in to test it.

Seems quite subversion style, I like it.

And at least something would be happening :)

I believe that me being Canadian, and not being too ignorant as to the regional differences of the spelling of certain words (including, but not limited to colour also being spelled as color) effects this situation as I can rightfully say that I couldn't really care less whether a person spells it as colour, or color.
I myself spell it as colour when writing a letter or documentation, but spell it as color when doing coding for a program.
Just as I spell armour as such, whereas others might spell it as armor.
Neighbour, neighbor.
Etcetera.

On-topic...
I want this game.
Now.
But I, and many others, must wait...

Partially on-topic, via my on-topic post...
I hope Portal 2 and Duke Nukem Forever can tide me over until Subversion is released...

That's fairly common to happen with programmers in England, as every use of colour in programming is spelt wrong
