I'm writing a bug report of a software which is about an Article Management Software and deals with a lot of comment issues. I need a word for someone who posts a comment. I thougt about the comment writer, author of the comment, etc. but none sounds what I want. Is there a word for someone who writes/posts a comment?
- Anybody can ask a question
- Anybody can answer
- The best answers are voted up and rise to the top
You could use commenter or commentator, although correct it suggests heavy commenting in the style of scholar articles about an author. Therefore maybe comment poster if it's on a Web resource.
In your particular case, you could increase the use of the actor: i.e. test participants commented about.... Given that talking of the participants would imply that their main output is comments regarding what they have been shown.
