I can find my way around America without having too much difficulties. 
It's just that I think documentation deserves better.

I'll try to figure out what "eniligey" means before I get pissed.... 
:-). Even google has nothing to say about that word.....

I wasn't mad about you being wrong. I was mad about you treating 
everyone correcting you as if they were dumb.

The question is whether you should write docs in slang. Answering your 
private mail - I installed RedHat servers with locale set to Red Neck 
too. I stopped when too many programs started complaining that they 
don't have the right language of tools. I figured the humor does have to 
give way, occasionally, to functionlity (Monty Python's Complete Waste 
of Time CD nonwithstanding, of course. Which reminds me, I should check 
whether it works on Wine....).

Of the two, it's actually Britan that I've never been to.

I think we can get rid of the "American vs. English" jokes right now. 
Too cliche.
