I have a question about the definite article "the". Suppose I posted a question and some commenters commented on it. Now someone else wrote an answer to my question and wants to write something mentioned by the commenters on my question. What would the answerer write?
a) Mentioned by commenters?
b) Mentioned by THE commenters?
b) sounds unnatural to me but also seems correct to me. a) sounds correct but without "the", it may be incorrect. Which one would the answerer write?
Thanks for your help!
