disadvaNtage surely?

Mark

I couldn't believe this poll. It is obviously "at" and only "at". But the poll results showed a pretty even spread.

So either most users are not native speakers or there is some variation between countries.

I knew how to sort this out, however, I did a google search.
(remember to out the sentence in speech marks).

The result was clear:
at=14000 cases
in=7 cases

if we take into account a few errors by non-native speakers, then "at" is without a doubt coorect and "in" is certainly incorrect.

And it also indicated that most respondents were monkeys.

Agreed, Mark. How the heck can you reside within a disadvantage.

Yoiu are never "IN" an advantage, but AT an advantage:)
