Queueing

I little while ago I asked a friend to proof read my LQL project page. We ended up in a discussion about the proper spelling of Queueing. Bob blogged about this conversation over here so I won’t bother repeating the outcome. However, I would like to add this one link that provides additional information.

  1. Queuing and queueing both appear to be correct spellings that may differ with locale, though my spellchecker just informed me that the latter is incorrect. Variant spellings of words in England, Canada, Australia, and the United States should not be considered wrong, but simply different. The spelling of English words in England has been evolving for centuries, and the modern words are not considered to be spelled incorrectly because they deviate from the original spellings. The comments toward ‘American’ spelling of words appear to be simply biased opinions by the writers. Colour and honour look equally odd to me, but I do not ridicule the spellings (spellchecker just informed me that these are also spelled incorrectly). May we please move forward past historical differences and learn to accept each other.
