Default \"Sceptical\" - Agent, check this out

Cricinfo front page says "Zimbabwe 'sceptical' about resolution.". Smith, you are not the king of typo any more:P

"skeptical" and "sceptical" are both correct and mean the same thing. "sceptical" is NOT a typo.

Billah the new punchbag! Where's mba when one needs him. Or amit for that matter.

Anywhoo, some of us who have been in the US far too long might be a little sKeptical about the spelling sCeptical, but it is yet another perverse attempt at US Americans to rationalize the Queen's English.

Just out of interest, do you guys spell 'wise' as 'wize'? How about 'mourn', is it 'morn'? Abscond = abskond? Fence = fense? Hehe, seems like the attempt to rationalise didn't quite work out :P

there is nothing rational about any version of english spelling. too many examples abound, and i'm not going to name any. the same goes for bengali...you guys should see my spelling mistakes. what with three R's, three S's, two N's, two J's, two E's, two U's, etc.

The only language which has logical spelling is german to my knowledge.

I didn't know Americans speak English as well, thought they only speak 'American'.
