Units: Is TheVerge meant for the global masses or not?

Okay this is getting really old, but interestingly, one of the most persistent problems. Why do you keep using the extremely funky US unit system.

The whole idea of the International System of Units, was to come up with this seemingly utopian idea to make the metric system coherent and easy and understandable all over the world

So why are u guys hell-bent on not using it? i understand that USA, doesn't give a damn about the rest of the world and they just want to see the world burn,....but YOU.

The Verge is supposed to be a global site and not using the standardised metric system should not be even an option.

With regards
