Canadian i.e. British English spelling is something, whether people acknowledge or not - that sets a distinction between us and them. I grew up being taught that way and for me it's a little pet peeve, that's all. Like when I hear people say "zee" rather than "zed" for instance (Sesame Street FTL)...

While we're on the topic, why do you say you COULD really care less? Everyone could care less about everything really, so whats the point of saying about it for anything in particular.
Shouldnt it be 'I couldnt care less'? That statement means that you have reached the maximum of not caring.
