Bug Description

Look at the +activereviews page in any trunk branch. As I believed Launchpad is not a person but a web site, I think *it* has a little identity issue.

@mattew.revell: Ah, thanks for the hint. But I think this is still confusing, I've never understood whom Launchpad was referring to until now. Why Launchpad uses "I" when "you" is more clear (IMO)?

Let me reopen this. In comment #2 of bug report #362830, mpt said:

"The usual rule is to use 'you' where the system is communicating to you (in static text), and use 'I'/'me' where you are communicating to the system (in buttons, checkbox labels, radio button labels, etc)."
