I call what we speak here as american and not english...mainly just because we've butchered the english language by adding laziness and the like. Also, some words like Colour and Armour are spelled differently. Therefore shouldn't it be considered as american?
I like to put it this way: We took the language, dropped the parts that didn't make any sense, added our own parts that didn't make sense, and called it the same thing <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>
Speaking of calling it "American," I am brought back to an early moment on one of the original TEK boards where this guy started in on Tony because he said he was an American. Apparently, the guy thought he should call himself a United States citizen, not an American, for who-knows-why. It resulted in the guy running away from the board crying and Tony referring to himself as a "USer" for a while, which I thought was pretty funny.
