The "who" is not this one, not that one, not oneself, not some people, and not the sum of them all. The 'who' is the neuter the "they" [das Man]
- M. Heidegger, Being & Time, Macquarrie trans., H.126
Basically - the rather meaningless term we use when we specify what 'everybody' does, in all its triteness and superficiality, including eschewing what 'everybody' does as trite or superficial - keeping us locked in a busy circle of self-perpetuating activity that doesn't really go anywhere.
We take pleasure and enjoy ourselves as they take pleasure; we read, see, and judge about literature and art as they see and judge; likewise we shrink back from the 'great mass' as they shrink back; we find 'shocking' what they find shocking. The "they", which is nothing definite, and which all are, though not as the sum, prescribes the kind of Being of everydayness.

I was in a band called "And Support" for a while. We never got to do a headline gig. A while after I left they got a review that said if they don't change the name they'll sink without trace. So they changed the name to "Without Trace", and managed one more gig.
