Apparently the only non-monarch affected enough to employ the royal we (excepting Margaret Thatcher) is whoever scripted Windows 8: ‘We found some files you previously copied using File History. We can move them to your new drive so they’ll still be available.’ Even sillier than referring to one person as plural persons, this refers to no persons at all: not the ghost in the machine, just a machine.

We are not amused.
