No excuse other than they're not use to the way it's formatted.  People in the
US can get confused about 2008-06-07 because we don't use that here.  Writing
out January 1, 2008 is just basic plain lanuage that no one in the world can
possibly get confused about.

P.S.  This is, hands down, the dumbest thing in the world to argue about haha.
