Please use while rather than whilst, as the latter is considered to be antiquated now.


I think that to quite a few non-Brits, 'whilst', 'amongst' etc just seem weird because they never use those forms.

Obsolete? Antiquated?

This is all going too far!

If I was writing on a hip-hop-oriented message board, I might right "werd" instead of "word", or "old skool" instead of "old school", but I wouldn't write it in an entry - that's a different thing innit?

I am officially old-fashioned.
