While browsing various Stack Exchange sites + the private one I am currently administrating where I work I see that many profiles still show the classic About me placeholder:
Apparently, this user prefers to keep an air of mystery about them.
I could not help but link this placeholder to the never-ending discussions about pronoun usage and its enforcement by SE.
If I remove my About me text now I see another text:
(Your about me is currently blank.)

So, clearly the initial placeholder is not used after a custom About me text is saved.
I am wondering if this placeholder text will be affected by all these pronoun usage related changes (SE missed a spot) or it is not linked to the newest rules (although it is the message someones sees in their profile).
Question: Will the old "about me" message be affected by these recent pronoun usage rules?
