Help with English: Commentators vs. Commenters vs. Commentors

  1. This is question I've had for a while and I always get different answers. What do I call people who comment on blogs?
    Commenters?
    Commentors?
    Commentators?

    Please help me.

  2. Commenters. It's the noun.
    "comment [ˈkɒmɛnt]
    n
    1. a remark, criticism, or observation
    2. talk or gossip
    3. (Literary & Literary Critical Terms) a note explaining or criticizing a passage in a text
    4. (Literary & Literary Critical Terms) explanatory or critical matter added to a text
    vb
    1. (when intr, often foll by on; when tr, takes a clause as object) to remark or express an opinion
    2. (Literary & Literary Critical Movements) (intr) to write notes explaining or criticizing a text
    [from Latin commentum invention, from comminiscī to contrive, related to mens mind]
    commenter n"

    Commentator to me is a sports commentator. So that's not the same.

    Commentors isn't a word.

  3. "Commentator" is the worst word in the English language and should be stamped out with extreme prejudice.
