Does anyone who isn't me find the rebranding of "phone posts" and "post by email" to "voice posts" and "mobile posts" respectively incredibly confusing and non-intuitive? Every time I see reference to them anywhere on the LJ site, I always have a brief "huh?" moment of doubletake before I actually realise what they're talking about. I'm also tempted to make a phone post that at no point includes my voice, just out of spite.

A "mobile post" sounds like it should be sent in from a mobile phone, so they could have come up with a better name there. I don't see anything wrong with leaving "voice posts" named phone posts, personally.

I hate it. I do a keyword search on the faq.bml (CTRL+F) for "phone" and get nothing. I do it for "mobile" and get nothing. I don't even think "voice." Duh.

I think that 'mobile posts' are generally posted through sms-to-email gateways, which is why there is an implication of using a mobile phone.

LiveJournal specializes in ridiculous, though.
