    Default Counselling.

    Counseling isn't entirely incorrect, it's just American.

    And autocorrects are always switched to American over Australian spelling, same with 'z' in words when it should be an 's'.

    I have an american friend who has lived in australia for years, but she still uses american spelling for nearly everything. People are constantly correcting her and it drives her nuts. Her attitude is that she chose to live in australia, not give up her roots, which I can understand.

    I'm sure some people just let auto-correct do its thing, but that's not always the case.

    Yes that is so annoying!
    I always worry that people think I'm an idiot who can't spell when I miss that autocorrect has yet again chucked a Z in there somewhere.

    That's pretty much what I was getting at.
    It's the most incorrectly spelled word on BH I think.

    Actually, what I wrote doesn't even make sense, so I'm retracting. Too tired to think, I think!
