I noticed that you spell Labour, Labor. Just thought I'd point out that in the United Kingdom at least the word Labor is spelt Labour.

Americans drop the u for many words.

Colour, honour, valour, etc.

colour vs color, analyse vs analyze, etc. Same thing. U.S. and U.K have different spellings. I'm Canadian, and I use labour, but I have no issue with people using labor. As long as the point gets across, it's fine. The correct spelling in U.S. is labor.

Americans cant spend a second without the fat dripping off their fingers from the giant bucket of chicken they've been eating to spell it the correct way, therefore in america it's spelled incorrectly as Labor.

I'm currently dipping my Kentucky fried chicken with fried mayonnaise and butter with one hand down my pants watching reality T.V. shows and I could care less about implementing a "u" into words that you spell with a "u." None of us give a ♥♥♥♥ about your "u." That is all.

"I could care less" ... So you do care some then ?
The correct way to type this is "I couldn't care less" maybe if you used those U's .....

For the American servers it is spelled Labor, which is correct since American English does not use the "u" as Jestunhi stated.

Maybe they will change the EU version to Labour to make you people happy.

lol. I admit I think that each time I see someone saying they could care less. If you can care less then it means you do care. :p

I can't believe this is even an issue. If it was spelled Labour I'm 99% certain that no Americans would care. We all know that some of these words are spelt differently. Get out of your box and get over it. It's not like they injected crazy slang that is impossible to understand due to cultural differences.

Lol apparently people get really hurt over the spelling of certain words. I won't lie though, I cringe when I see words like defense spelled like defence. And the way the Brits pronounce words like garage, aluminum, and pasta really makes me have a huge distaste for the accent. But Rii is right, if I saw the word Labour, I would cringe, but I wouldn't care enough to go into the forums and make a big stink about it. Learn to accept diversity, and if you can't, please build a bridge and get over it.
