@Matt "plain" is great! I worry a little bit that it could be taken as too negative, but I think it's the word I was looking for, do put it as an answer

comment “School Students” — what, like there's any other kind of student?
Many other languages have a clear distinction between school and college/university, and their respective students. A college/university would never be called "school" there. The cutoff in the languages I know is at the end of high school. I've always wondered about the history of why English doesn't have this distinction.

comment Should I preserve spelling when quoting American English in a British English text, or vice versa?
But, it likely would have been closed as a dupe regardless. -> exactly. That's my point - the only difference between a normal dupe and this question was that I stated my intention. (But yeah, let's see what the community says)

@David I see your point, but the official reason why questions closed as duplicate are kept around is SEO. Had I posted this without the notice, it would not have been a problem. But let's take it to Meta, cool
