Um, really? It's perhaps a bit dry, but certainly no more so than interactor, and I certainly don't consider it derogatory.

I wouldn't say that it's derogatory, but it is kind of depersonalized.

Actually I was just making a funny, which should probably be excised. "User" would be a term generic to computing and both "player" and "interactor" would be more specific, but of course it's not really derogatory.
