    Are you being facetious? I've never heard people in America use the word "queue" instead of "line." It's a British English thing.

    I find myself regularly using the word queue now; or at least switching between that and line from time to time.

    We're taught as kids to use line. People never say queue. I only read queue on the internet.

    Well that is silly. You should be able to say queue. If we 'muricans are too lame to adapt and accept then why bother changing your language. Queue is not wrong, it's just not what you hear in the states. :)

    As someone in traffic engineering I use the word "queue" quite frequently. Born and raised in Ohio. Queue is a pretty common word.

    Trolling is a art

    Am I really the only one that noticed the troll face in OP's email screenshot?

    I think the point was that queue was misspelled.

    Queue is a common word used by many in America.

    "Whilst" on the other hand I wish would be f'n burned at the stake, I despise that word for some reason.

    Hmm, could be. Seemed to me like the bigger troll bait was the offer to skip ahead of the queue on launch day, thus inciting jealousy and anger among the people reading the post, generating a long discussion, flame wars, etc.

    But apparently a simple misspelling works too! :p
