Re: Metric tonne?

I think the point is that tonne is the name for metric ton. There is no short or long tonne, as tonne (with the additionally -ne) is exclusively used for the metric ton. Thus speaking of metric tonne is somewhat similar to "IT-technology".

I did not know this before reading the comment. The comments in this lesbian on-line magazine is making me learn things all the time.
