so is it self defense if you got push and you go ahead and push someone back?
I reverted the spelling back to "defense" because that is the title of the article. Most articles seem to use "defense." Asdfqwe123 21:04, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Its British English spelling vs US spelling. In British English a lot of nouns have "-ce", because that is used to differentiate verbs and nouns where both would otherwise have the same spelling, eg "practise" and "license" are verbs, "practice" and "licence" are nouns. I find "defense" rather horrid to read alas. Francis Davey 19:49, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
