Email chain
Amusing email chain that recently went out to my whole project team:

Team,
Really fun to see we are making substantial progress on some “hot topics”.
I know we have still plenty to do, but just wanted to let you know … you guys rock!
-Belgian Product Owner
PS [Renniekins] … you too

I think [Renniekins] confirmed that ‘Guys’ is a gender neutral term.
-Scrum Master

Yep, popular US usage is that “guys” in the plural applies to both genders, although “guy” in the singular would be just male.
That said, I don’t mind being singled out to tell me that I rock. :-D
- [Renniekins]

Wait a sec:
Only fraggles can rock, smurfs are smurfing AFAIK ;-)
-Teammate

"Random Person updated their profile" isn't grammatically correct
I'd say that's only true for the most formal purposes these days, and I think even that will change within 10-20 years.

"You" used to be strictly plural, as well. The singular was "thee".

I seem to recall a smurf figurine with a guitar, they can rock!
