Apparently there is a strong belief that StackOverflow is not a forum. I don't buy that sort of things but some individuals are very sensitive about this.
What is an accurate and civil one-word substitute for a forum?
- site - too broad, applicable to both concrete forum and platform in general;
- Q&A site - not one word, doesn't matter how short abbreviation is.
Using definition instead of a word creates unjustified cognitive load in a context where nobody cares about marketing strategies of Stack Exchange, Inc.
