While registering, I noticed the required language is "British English", does that mean when we feel like saying fucking this or fucking that, we have to say bloody this or bloody that?

No, Merikan Inglish is fine, as long as we don't dent the aluminium when closing the boot, riding the tube, or carousing in the lift...

Yeah, it automatically inserts the extra u whenever we discuss the team colours. :-)

And no, it won't be changing anytime soon!

And, don't forget in the King's English when we spell words like realize or materialize, we should spell them as "realise" and "materialise". Any word that ends with "ize" should be spelled as "ise", am I right? Jim.

I thought the term had to do with who the reigning monarch is? (ie shouldn't it be "Queen's English" atm?) That is was my grandfather told me anyway.

Well, let's think about this, unlike the debates over chicken or egg, we know the King's English came before the Queen's English, so when we talk about the linguistics of the English language, we refer to the King's English.

I'm just kidding, I'm sure your grandfather is correct, unless a Brit disagrees.
