*lol* I've always wondered that in the back of my mind! According to the automatic spell-checker, binging is the correct spelling, but in my opinion, it just doesn't look right.

Whatever works, I guess! Maybe someday we won't need to use the word, anyway

the teacher in me says binging, since you typically drop the 'e' at the end to add 'ing'
but I guess it really can go either way... I personally prefer it without the 'e'

The teacher in me wants to drop the -e too, so I prefer "binging." The problem is that it looks like it should rhyme with "ringing." Ugh. I hate ugly, difficult words.
