Dave, for me this is it:

I only accept crticism personally on the understanding that it will be proven the fault is not really mine. It is just a matter of timing before the issue is cleared up.

Your welcome. No charge for the first two uses, after that we negotiate.

Well it was before my time, so I can't guarantee the truth in what I've read. I like the explanation in Wikipedia: American and British English spelling differences - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Note that humor/humour derives from Latin so would have been "humor" in Middle English, and properly should have stayed that way.

Authorities in Canada have also acted from similar political and patriotic motives, as they tried to preserve Canadian English's differences when faced with the American steamroller. In one instance, Sir John A. Macdonald issued an Order in Council (No. 1178 of June 12, 1890, according to the National Library of Canada) that "the English practice be uniformly followed" in official documents of all sorts. From that stems our system of writing honour, colour, theatre and centre instead of using their -or and -er forms.

I keep having to add proper spellings to my spell checker.

My biggest issue was going to grad school in the US.

Drifting further still...
The next paragraph to the one you posted from that link agrees with me:

Quote:
Some sources say -or was the original form and travelled with settlers to the Americas, but British usage changed in the mid-nineteenth century under the influence of French, which was considered a more cultivated language. Thus, Britain and her Empire adopted -our spellings, which looked more like the French -eur, along with a preference for -re instead of -er, while the Americans retained the simpler, original forms.
