rethink in favor, or rethink against?

Because I could see the argument either way.

This of course presumes that the raptors will act first.

I never felt the need to justify proper spelling by way of saying "it's always been this way", so the fact that englishmen 100 years ago didn't spell the same way as we do doesn't trouble me one bit. I find it useful to have a standard, now, in the present. The past is somewhat irrelevant.
