This question already has an answer here:
Recently I've noticed that some of my questions/answers on various communities have been edited for reasons such as "spelling mistakes".
They've included things such as changing "initialise" to "initialize" and other things in that nature.
As I am from Ireland and speak Irish English, which is more or less the same as British English, the words I am typing are correct. Side note: even as I typed "initialize" in that earlier example - the z version is underlined in red to show an error.
Am I in the wrong here and should I be using American spellings for Stack Exchange communication or are those people just a bit narrow minded?
