Change is inevitable

The technical term for w'all here is "first person plural inclusive", and some languages have words to distinguish it from the exclusive. I like to think I'll live to see English come up with one, and if it's w'all then I can claim to have invented it.

Interrogation Tuesday results:

Least favorite colors: you have some good ones. I may have to like fewer colors now that you've pointed them out.
It looks like if we were to give one color the boot, it would be yellow (with four 'yellow's, one 'pastel yellow' and one 'Blue. No, Yelllooooooowwwwww . . . ' Also hated were purple (2 votes), mauve (2), orange (2) and then some really unique ones: Sombrero,
the visible difference between ugly carpet and stained ugly carpet, Moose,
muted lime green, Diarrhea and Hot pink. A paranoid 'Before I answer, I want to ask: Will you use my answer against me?' and finally two related to weddings: bride's maid dress and 'Any and all of the simple colors with fancy names that nobody can remember and that girls love to use at their weddings.'

In the second question I asked, on a scale of 1 to 10 (associated with 'Agree' and 'Disagree' respectively) what you were thinking about. Looks like whatever it was, most disagreed moderately, while the overall population was skewed towards disagreement. I like that.
