re: To comment on each point: I've regretted trying to get too domain-specific with names. Better off using conventions if they exist in the function...

Great points Ben!

Curious -- why was the Customer name so confusing? Were there other names in the domain revolving around "people" or was it just that User is so synonymous with "a representation of a human being in code form"?


It just seemed like every time we went to talk about the model, we had to clarify that customer was the main user model. Also it was Rails, where conventions are strong and everybody calls it user.
