Why people call Question Asker “OP”? Do you find it annoying as well?

I found in Google it means Original Poster…

It’s totally irrelevant first of all…it’s called Question Asker…or Topic Starter or Thread Starter if ya want…. Original Poster? How? Original Poster of wot? Especially if dat question was asked millions of times…

It really annoys me when people say OP all da time…they think it’s cool…but it’s not cool actually…

    How dare they call it Original Poster!
    There's nothing original about asking a question that's been asked a million times.
    If they want to get creative... why don't they create their own language and then ask questions!

    I AM THOROUGHLY OFFENDED!!

    • Also wot annoys me... it's I often confuse it wid Opinion Poster...

  • It's not a matter of being cool or not lol that's just an easy way to refer to the person who posted the question. Original poster of the question. They posted the question, or the opinion. And original in terms of this thread because people can respond to comments..

    Lol I don't know why this irks you so much.

  • So I have a question for you, OP. Did you purposely pick up this shitty attitude/personality to match your new username or were you just pretending under your old username and the shitty personality is the real you? #BringBackTheOldKlaatu

    • Oh no not again... if ma attitude's shitty... then yer attitude isn't? It's called an obsession...

      And how on earth it's shitty attitude to dislike OP... anyway I'd just say I'm more honest wid dat name... but shitty? Watch yer mouth...

    • I'm not saying you're wrong or anything, just that your attitude and demeanor has changed for the worst. It used to be fun to read your posts but now they all come off as condescending and depressing somewhat.

    • Show me some evidence then... WHERE did i started it first?

      And ThisDudeHere... there are some posts where I use proper grammar... so they didn't realize about who I am... and of course when I post a MyTake I use proper grammar... so ya don't know wot all ma posts are about generally...

  • Is your poll asking if we think using OP is cool or if we dislike people using OP?

    OP already means "Question Asker…or Topic Starter or Thread Starter". Just because you didn't know what it meant doesn't mean the word is bad XD

    • Or you could just like go back to old Klaatu instead of calling people names...

    • @BellePepper Others start it at least 9 out of 10 of times... see everyone's comments here... I never attacked anyone personally in dat question... I just said dat OP word annoys me... so I believe I'm right here... and DAMN IT if ya don't like ma posts just don't read 'em... why respond?

  • Anything you put on the Internet be it on a forum or blog is a post. Whoever starts the thread is the original poster. No one thinks it's cool.

  • No, I don't find it annoying. Maybe it's because most of the times I don't notice it.
    And some questions were never asked.

  • OP is common to many forums, so people who use other forums might just use it out of habit.

    • Never seen it anywhere else... and I've been in a forum since...2005 or so...

      I always remember they were callin' em Topic Starter... or something similar in ma mother language which I'd rather not mention...

    • Or most of times they mention 'em by their usernames...

  • I think it's a carry over from usenet (Google it) where the original poster who started the thread was commonly referred to as the OP.

    • Question Asker sounds more legit to me... now dat I think about it... Topic or Thread Starter doesn't match at all... since it's a Question not a Topic...

    • Hah all true.

  • Are you kidding me dude? Life is full of plenty of stress. You'll have plenty of stressful moments in your life, stop making up more.

  • Oh, hi OP !

    How's it going, OP?

    You're having a laugh, OP?

    You do realize you were posting a question onto the internet? Thus you are an original poster.
