Speaking in the Third Person

It tends to annoy people. RCs are people.

At Davidson II 2005, multiple people were sent to bed early (A laughable punishment), for talking in the third person.

PILFers '05 may remember the hilarity that accompanies this subject: "You haven't seen the best of Hector! You haven't seen what Hector has to offer!"

How to speak in the third person

Before each sentence, say "(Your Name) Says..." If you forget, include "...Says (Your Name)" at the end of the sentence. One may substitute thinks, argues, etc, for says.
