maybe it is the fault of the American Public after all for giving a

Finally, you got to say what you really wanted to say all along... Dialect
change = dumbed down, hmmm.

If changing the language of a book to make it easier (according to
people who have replied to posts in this thread anyway) isn't "dumbing
down" then what is it?

Blimey, sounds like a superiority complex.

<sigh>

Don't be silly. British English is no more superior in a British book
than USA English would be in an American book.

Cheers! Oh wait, that means thank you, right???

I have no idea what country you live in but if you are American and are
happy to have your literature institutionally stupified then who am I
for wanting to fight your corner for you.........
