Ive been wondering for a long time why the vast majority of forumers on here decide to say they quitted instead of simply say they quit? Although i understand both are acceptable ive never heard of anyone in the states say they quitted. Honestly i find it painful to read like nails on a chalkboard. So why insist on the extra effort instead of saying they quit?

That's like asking why british people add 'u's into their word.

Hopefully it doesn't become a meme at this point.

The British people made English.

well obviously they made english I'm just saying that saying "color" is used by more people and adding 'u' to the words is optional

Do show us statistics or surveys based on your claim;
people using 'color' more than 'colour'

And I'm not talking about surveys and statistics in America only. Because the rest of the world exist too.

i cant show you any statistics, as of i dont have any. i do know for a fact that other countries like china and japan that the teachings aren't based off most of the way the british people put their ways of writing, but a more simpler way like the americans do.

honestly i dont even know why it came down to all of this nonsense of saying wheter using 'o' only or 'ou' is the better way to write the word, because the only reason why i brought up the 'ou' was because i was trying to say there are more ways to write different words and they can still be correct.

I've always felt like punching anyone who used "quitted", but sadly I cant do that over the internet. Like seriously, it sounds horrible, even if it is right.

Grey or gray?

That is the question.

They are both correct, however it is more common for people who speak American English to use "Gray" and for European English speakers to use "Grey".
If you ever want to remember which to use in a certain occasion, just think about "GrAy, GrEy"

Maybe it has to do with when spelling rules were being made, different countries decided to use different spellings.

Quitted.

People assume past tense always ends with "ed" so quitted? Who knows.

Well, why did the Americans remove the 'u's, then?
I mean, English originated from England.
