There's something nice about being called English, due to the fact that our great language is called that too. Hence I much prefer being called English rather than British, because it makes me feel our people own the language. Just thought I'd share that with you all.

Wow, you mean you can actually OWN a language?!
Wouldn't the copyright on that be expired by this time? And I'm glad you don't charge a license fee for it's use. So how about a manual for it, and where's the customer support?

I would prefer to be called British rather than English. While teh former is arguably true, the latter is most definitely not so.

Sometimes I'd prefer that people didn't speak to me at all. No one listens to me, though.
