We don't debate every spelling decision. We don't even debate most spelling decisions. But those we do are listed below. Note that sometimes spelling decisions confirm the obvious dictionary choice, and sometimes they don't.
This list is complete as of January 2017. It may not be complete at the time you read it. You may want to check Board:Spelling debates for the most up-to-date list.
