In colloquial English, the indefinite pronoun "one" has almost entirely
been replaced by the definite pronoun "you", even for use with an
indefinite person. So much so that when one uses "one" one appears
somewhat stuffy. When I said "you" in most of what you quoted,
I meant exactly "some other (existing or fantasmatic) person"
and not bruno at modulix.
