Do you refer to yourself in third-person?
I have to wonder when that started, who started it, and why.

20. I would never do that.

21. Only when writing formal reports or lab paperwork.
Edited on Wed Nov-19-08 08:19 PM by peruban
Journalistic writers usually refer to themselves as "this reporter".

I actually prefer using the royal "We", as in "We are not amused", "We are washing dishes", or "We are cleaning out the litter box".
