    1. Yes, as many commenters said, I am amazed that AVN ever had charity status.

      At the same time, I am ever so conflicted to see “skeptic” as part of their new title.
      Skeptic with a k betrays Meryl Dorey’s US origins, which is funny on one level, but that spelling will always mean Skepchick for me!

      1. I use “I went to the theatre to see La Bohème.” But “I went to the theater to see 300.” I use “grey” over “gray”. But yeah, skeptic is an American spelling.

        Fun fact: You can usually tell how wrong people are by their obsession with defending themselves in the comments section. Also by their tendency to believe anyone who takes the time to engage them is part of the conspiracy.
