    33The first comment has historically been left by "Mr WordPress" in order to indicate it's a comment left by a 'person.' One, therefore, cannot simply suggest we change this to 'WordPress' as that does not demonstrate humanity.
     
    55I propose one of the following choices:
    66
    7 * Mx WordPress - Mx is accepted as a [gender-nonspecific title](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mx_(title)), however it could be difficult to translate into all languages.
     7* Mx WordPress - Mx is accepted as a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mx_(title) gender-nonspecific title], however it could be difficult to translate into all languages.
    88* Captain WordPress - There is no gender involved and this could be translated, though it implies a ranking hierarchy that may be confusing.
    99* Wapuu - Wapuu has no gender, and we could use a `wapuu@wordpress.org` email address that uses Wapuu as a gravatar, however Wapuu is less likely to be known by new members of WordPress (and they are the most likely to see the comment and wonder what it is).
