I make this point because the sample of people on IRC isn't exactly
respective of the world in general. :) Of the people I asked about
this, several said "Oh, I enter everything in international format
anyway, so I've never noticed". This came from people in both the US
and the UK so I wanted to head this off. Even IF "the rest of the
world" uses International formatting, the vast majority of people in a
fairly large market wouldn't.

That was my very polite "screw what you do". :)
