British newspaper holds on to “arse”

Even though the British newspaper the Guardian has a larger online readership in the US than it does in the UK, readers’ editor Siobhain Butterworth says that British spellings and usage are still preferred by the paper. The paper’s style guide editor says, “We are a British newspaper, US readers recognise this and seem comfortable with what we do.”
