Can the Qs on Fluther get any more nonsensical? What can we do to change this trend?
Also, what can we do to help improve site quality? Clearly many Qs are great and yes there is a tabs system in place so people can choose their poison. But there is such a stark contrast between General and Social or there used to be, a lot of this is debatable now, that just clicking on the Social tab feels like I’m losing a few IQ points. Is this really what the site should be aiming for?
Is there nothing to be said for the intellectual stimulation and conversation that this site was once known for? Or is this new phase better because it accepts all regardless of quality? How do YOU feel about this? This Q is more for the veterans, but as always newbies should feel free to chime in.
Let me address some of the answers I’m sure I’ll get:
“You don’t need to answer the ones you dislike, just ignore them” – True, but I’m worried about overall site quality and also the current sad plight of mankind.
“Everyone has different interests, we don’t berate you for your Qs” – True, but then what’s the difference between Yahoo Answers and Fluther?
“If you don’t like it, you can leave” – Also true, but does Fluther really want to lose its veterans?
People new to this discussion, please read – After some constructive criticism, the title of this Q has been changed. For older answers to still make sense, I thought I should point out that “retarded” in the Q title has been replaced by “nonsensical.”
