    What do you call a person who posts a question to a forum? Poster? Questioner? Any other word?

    Thank you in advance.

    Either of those would do. Quite often, to avoid the obvious - but not really confusing - pun on the other sort of 'poster', people re-word their reference - and say something like 'the person who posted'.
