Penguin's Nest calls The Difference Between Gray and Grey an "amazing post" because it has been commented on regularly from when it was posted back in May of 2004 until this month. I've pointed out regularly how amazed I am myself at how popular that post has become. At this point, it has become one of those destinations on the web that transcends the blog it belongs to or any other "definitive" source on the topic at hand. Why? Because 140 comments have been made (at the time of writing) over a period of nearly three years, turning it into a conversation full of all the color (if you'll forgive the pun) and insight you'd expect from an ongoing discussion among people from all walks of life. Who knew so many people cared (and sometimes quite strongly) about the spelling of a single word?

I was just enjoying the beginning of James Clavell's "Shogun," about a ship fighting a gale among storming reefs, when up came that old pisser of a word "gray." To me, "gray" is a gay ray of sunshine. It's not "grey." Though I live in Maine, I've always stuck with grey.

Well, upon getting up I thought I'd finally look up on the web what the real answer is (not that it would change my mind), and found your post. Very glad to find "grey" championed, and I began reading down, and... holy crap - who are these people? And who's this Bernie who gets so much traffic?

Well, I clicked on your name and lo and behold, there's a reference to the same "Grey/Gray" post, but dated today.

What an odd, grey world.
