Of course; I should have seen that. Did not intend to turn into a grammar Nazi. My apologies.

The answer to your question is self evident.

"They" are the ultimate authority on everything that can't possibly be believed absent the citation of a reliable source.  The imaginary and omnipotent "They" fulfills the role of an unimpeachable expert. 

However, being a bashful group, 'They" are also 'those who shant be named.'

This answer is absolutely correct and no other answer given by any other Instructibite could possibly be more complete.  As a result, you have no choice but to select this as the "best answer."  Trust me, 'They' told me this is true!

In answer to 'jxross', You neglected to say that, "They", are usually the enemy! And, they oppose everything that you believe in! I think that may simplify your long winded verbiose message? This has turned into a good debate, I love it.

"Long winded verbose"??? Really? I thought it rather succinct. In fact, they say that the number of words I used in my definition is exactly the number needed to most efficiently convey the true nature and meaning of almost any abstract concept. Seriously! I'm not making this stuff up!

That is true, because we plebians who do not understand the ways of high society, (those who rule the country), do not also understand the ways in which the "Rulers" work.
Usually, "They", start by lying to the populace to get into power, then doing what "They", want to do, and bollocks to the people that voted them in to do something else! Democracy is a good thing in it's initial form, but now it has "Morphed", into, (The biggest liar gets to control not only the Country, but also of you)!

You can't select anything as "best." You created a forum topic, not a question.

Ah, but the quotation marks make it correct. "They" might refer to an individual, a collection of individuals, or even an organization conceived as a collective singular (viz. "The Illuminati"). Hence, "What is 'they'?" is a grammatically valid formulation, and "Who is 'they'?" is a slightly more poetical form, where the identifier "they" is further personalized.

P.S. Be careful what you wish for when you recite the Grammar Nazi summoning spell ;->

That makes sense! And I wasn't accusing you of being the Grammar Nazi. Rather, I was suggesting that, you had metaphorically summoned me, wearing my Grammar Nazi hat :-)

In English, presumably its the "impersonal plural", the "impersonal singular" is "one".
One should have been taught that.
They should have been taught that.
