  • I'm sorry, we don't do that sort of thing on Wordie.

  • Unless you're a word. Or a tag.

  • Such a feature would be utterly redundant: You could just make an open list labeled “Friends�?; everyone could add themselves. (Why isn't it "themself" as substitute for "himself/herself"?)

  • *Feigned innocence* Surely because himself can be used to imply both sexes indeterminately?

    More puzzling to me: why not oneself, if it's something everyone could do?

  • 'everyone' can be read as singular or plural. Like 'lego'. Mass noun or count noun. So you can have it both ways - everyone (the mass) can add themselves, or everyone (each component person) can add him/her/themself.

    I don't believe in the word 'themself'. We don't have 'oneself' in that context, I reckon, because 'oneself' already has a first-person meaning and can't handle a third-person one on top of that.

  • Interesting, thanks.

    Besides, oneself is clearly underwordied.
