Going From Email To E-mail

from the who-really-cares? dept

Wired News seems to be making quite a big deal of the fact they’ve changed their style guidelines so that email will now be spelled e-mail. My first thought is that this is a stupid thing to worry about. My second thought is that if I had to think about it, it seems a bit backwards. I’d say “email” has definitely become a word these days. Maybe they’re just ahead of the game and “retro spelling” will be the next big thing. Come on, and bring on ye olde time spelling.
