I wrote a Q&A wiki and refered to myself as the OP, rather than "I" or "my". I did it for clarity. But, I'm wondering if it's unnecessary and makes the format feel unnatural. Opinions?
The (possibly) offensive post is here.
Target the reader, the question or the code rather than the 'original poster'. A good example is this question. The original poster should be irrelevant to the question itself in most of the cases anyway.
That said - if you're answering your own question and need to refer to the question author - it's better to refer to yourself as OP, you, asker or another term indicating the person who asked the question.
This is for clarity. The Q&A format works really well here. The person reading the answer should optimally not be aware of of the fact it's the same person answering the question. So in short - no, it's not stupid.
