I "write" or "speak" "mixed English" because I don't always remember the differences.
What about the forum? Should I write british or american English?

I don't think its a big deal, besides some of the Americanisms. (I would have to think twice if you told me something about a "lorry") :D

This is strange because I don't know whether I should write "color" or "colour" :crazy:

Oh I see. I understand it either way, but I write it "color". However, Fx spellcheck doesn't seem to like that spelling. :P

I do not write or speak English like native, receive strong influence from the person I write or talk. This is just like mixture of dialects of native language.
