    Also, check this out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they

    Read the ENTIRE article and if you still disagree you are either extremely ignorant or just a troll.
    No, I am not wrong. There is no information that states that "them" is the singular form of "they" throughout the ENTIRE article.

    And actually, the article clearly shows that "them" is just the objective form of "they". I won't obligate you to read the ENTIRE article to make you find out this fact. Here you go, just read the chart: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singula...tical_analysis (reading nominative and accusative columns are enough)

    And f**k you for being such an annoying b*****d.

    Unlike you, this guy is actually helping:

    OK, this clarifies my conflict. I have indeeed misunderstood. But you have to admit, << "them" (singular they) >> makes it look like you were claiming that "them" is the singular form of "they". << "them" (singular them) >> would be better.

    Well, I wrote this statement for people who actually know what singular they is. I think for those people it's not confusing. Besides, stating "them" was the singular form of "they" doesn't really make sense anyway, so I was just assuming, that people who read my posts think of the most logical or closest meaning.

    This thread is not about what someone likes. If you use "them" everywhere instead of "him", you should use it here as well.
    Glad that it is fixed. Close please.

    Valve should ask for SEX, or else "Kill her!"

    Because it's not from Valve and thus doesn't apply to the Valve Guidelines.
    Why is this still open? It was a bug and got fixed a long time ago. There is a different thread where you can discuss it (linked in the OP).
