    Settle a dispute...

    When writing an open letter, is it acceptable to use the plural form of a word, i.e. friends, colleagues, or associates?

    Thanks!

    Of course. Why would it not be?

    Friends, Romans, and Countrymen...

    (By the way, you meant "e.g.," which means "for example," not "i.e.")
