The editorial “we.”

From Fancyclopedia 2, ca. 1959
An avoidance for I. It gradually infected fans from its use in the general press, and the fans who didn't take it up apurpose found themselves caving in unawares. They are mainly troubled about their inability to keep from indiscriminately mixing "we" and "I".
