How about people.

Of course but my point is I keep seeing other people use a variety of these terms, it's probably got something to do with an ancestral desire to belong to a tribe, but whatever, it's happening. I just wanted to see if we could actually agree on one of them that suck less than the rest so that when people feel the need to use one, it's not a different one each time.

Yeah, it's just generally less conducive to weird tribe mentality. I cringe whenever someone calls themselves a "redditor" or a "/b/tard" or what have you

And that's the best reason for "people on hubski"

This same question has been tickling the back of my brain for the last few days. Now that I've read your post, I'm quite happy that there isn't an easy question to answer.

People should have more important things to identify themselves by than the websites they frequent.
