I personaly think that even though we dont "Have" to use the standard I think is not only sounds the best but just seems everyone should use the same one in my opinion. Sure if you know you are talking with some guy in Mexico or whatever, maybe then use the geographical one. There is always going to be a language barrier, and I will agree with some of you to do what it takes to get the job done.

Might as well start talking like the cops, boy and george for chist's sake. Oh and by the way its HAND HELD not handy talky, you guys talkin on your baby moniter or somethin?
