I think she may be the first contributer to Fluther and is the aunt to one of the techies that started Fluther.

My mum and Ben’s aunt

She is Ben’s aunt (He is one of the founders), and is a very important part of the collective. You can read more here and here.

She also dons a cape and mask and fights terrorists under the name Lady Justice. In her spare time.

She’s our Oracle.

I’m not 100% sure she exists. I imagine her to be like the mythical Lady of the Lake in Arthurian legend…

Gail is a magical creature who lives in a storybook town in the Berkshires.

She’s part sage, old-school grammar teacher, part your-favorite aunt ever, part incredibly-compassionate-confidant, part keeper of order, part fearless-lifelong-student, part adventurer and part Queen-of-this-site.

On nights when I’m down, I wish I could teletransport myself to her couch, drink tea by the fireplace, and look out at the stars with her.

Dear all; Are we talking about the same gailcalled I live with? She threw me out into the snow this morning, empties my litterbox only once a day, leaves very little ice cream in the bowl for me to lick, and allows me to lie on her just until all her limbs fall asleep. As I am getting warm and comfy and sleepy, after an hour of daydreaming, she dumps me on the floor.

And she now keeps waving in front of me a fishing rod with a stupid cloth mouse tied to the attached string. Very annoying, except when she remembers to dip the mouse in dried catnip.
Love, Milo

PS. And from where I am sitting, (on top of refrigerator with my laptop) she certainly does NOT know everything. That rubric would apply to me however. Milo

Gail, I think it’s safe to say that you’re an Internet celebrity. How does it feel?

augustlan's avatar

Whew. Thought I’d missed something big!

EmpressPixie's avatar

Me too! I’m glad that was cleared up by the time I found this question.

@PnL: She totally is my mum! Maybe not legally (yet), but she still is.
