Don't knock the yanks (offence intended) - I was pretty effectively trolled by a US colleague last week over the term 'router'.
Of course, I was using it correctly (roo-ter) when he was using the Americanism (rao-ter*). Of course, being polite I decided to switch when challenged (I am British after all) only to have him start using roo-ter at me instead! Priceless and totally unexpected!
*no idea how to phonetically do this
