I see No one has commented on your thread, Mike, so I figured Someone should post Something, to stop it from slipping down the thread list because Nobody has posted on it.
I thought I should be that Somebody to post and say I think Anyone can correctly use all four words at different times, depending on the situation - and Sometimes I use all 4 together! :woohoo:

They are all used every day so must all be correct.

It's no big deal to me as they mean the same thing.

They are all interchangeable so it doesn't matter.

I usually ponder over the use of '' 'was'!

That should read was or were but the site wouldn't accept it?!!

There is another one to ponder over. I was laughed at for saying everybody so do you say everyone or everybody

All good, for me, but I particularly like "no one"

This was because of the dual meaning depending on how you read it.

Example an old sailor's saying:-

TRUST NO 1

where I am number one!
:ohmy:
