comment Word for the “life/world” outside phone calls, text messages, and the Internet?
@geoO I've always understood it to be rather deliberately crude. It's also definitely not something I'd expect a majority of people to know, as it's from techie/cyberpunk vernacular, rather than a general term.

comment Word or short phrase meaning “Happening on the same day as”
I also really like this answer because my original inspiration for the question was a name for a variable in program code; I could easily use this name for that.

comment Word or short phrase meaning “Happening on the same day as”
@Thruston For phrasing/word choice, both of those options are good, but I'm curious about something that specifically means "on the same day

comment What is the word for somebody who does action/is action owner
The accepted answer more directly suits the exact question you asked, but I would add that if the Actor is always a registered user of the system, it will be more clear in your log if you refer to them as User instead of Actor.

comment Is there an adjective for someone who can withstand ridicule?
Like @DigitalChris I'm not familiar with a connotation of callousness for the term thick-skinned. I consider it a perfect fit for your context, and tend to regard it as a compliment to people who can endure criticism or ridicule.

comment What is the opposite of Optimal?
I agree that worst is probably a good choice, especially with its much higher extent of common usage. Optimal means something like "Most suited to the task/situation", therefore the word desired (and the accepted answer, pessimal hits this on the head) must be one which means "least suited to the task/situation". Worst doesn't mean exactly that, but it's close enough to be suitable, and much more common.

comment Is there one word for both horizontal or vertical, but not diagonal, adjacency?
Fails the "one word" criterion, but considering the question I think of the word perpendicular, as well as the phrase "cardinally adjacent" (that is, adjacent in a cardinal direction).

comment What exactly is the difference between “misinformation” and “disinformation”?
Would this suggest that disinformation is a subset of misinformation (that is, all disinformation is misinformation, but not vice versa)?
