Adrants Gets Over Itself, Retires Royal We


OH: "It's about time those pompous fuck heads over at Adrants got over themselves and started writing like normal human beings without all that stupid "we" shit." OK so that wasn't actually an overheard from Twitter but it might as well have been. But that "we" shit has, indeed, been put out of its sorry-ass misery.

Yes, it's true. Over the weekend, Angela and I grabbed our digital sabers, dove head first into the vast archives of Adrants, swam through the sea of ones and zeros until we found that pretentious pile of cowardly grandiloquence hiding behind a pile of PUMA Cum Shot digits and promptly whacked his digital ass to piece Saw-style.

Hence forth Steve will be known as Steve and Angela will be known as Angela. We is dead. Long live individuality and normal expression of prose.

Of course, We isn't totally dead. Angela and I spared the part of him which gets used the way normal people use it so that when Angela and I do something together or Adrants, the company, does something, he'll be able to come out and ruffle his pompous feathers a bit.

We hope you'll like the change.

Whoah, is this my doing? Because, for the record, I did have a specific blog in mind, but it sure wasn't yours.

The deeper meaning: I can no longer refer to myself and my id as two different people. Bummer.

Well THAT was unnecessary. What's wrong with the royal "We", particularly on a multiuser site with an opinionated but like-minded group of people controlling it?

Nothing, in our opinion. We use it all the time. It's neither deceptive nor presumptuous -- rather, in your case, it's entirely accurate. We regret your decision and mourn our loss...
