Apologies. My comment was clearly intended for another post! Darned smartphone.
OK, so I’m a little late to this one, but just had to jot down a quick comment: What?!? No way!!!
All right, two comments. No, three.
You may prefer not to use the ordinal abbreviations, but surely there is no rule compelling one to drop them. At least, there isn’t British or Australian English. Personally, I see their absence as a kind of crude shorthand. So, ‘December 4’ sounds like ‘December four’ not ‘December fourth’. Written in the British/Australian standard order makes it sound even worse, i.e. ‘four December’. Ugh.
Is this really an American style rule?!
