You have a question that needs editing Do you leave one there just to piss off the mods and keep them on their toes?

Asked by seazen (6113points) November 24th, 2010

I don’t get it. Why is that attractive to you?

kenmc's avatar

I don’t ask questions nearly as often as you and when I do, I’m pretty sure they won’t get modded so I don’t have an answer.

But so this doesn’t get modded for being off topic, FUCK YEAH.

seazen's avatar

@MissA You missed the wink, methinks. Just a convo starter on a slow Thursday morning, my time.

@kenmc :-)

Of course! I like having the mods trip up for waiting so long to see if I’ll edit a question or not.

Aethelwine's avatar

do they really sit around waiting…..wondering…..?

I get rid of them.

JLeslie's avatar

Does it piss off the mods?

There have been times I have questions that need editing that sit for weeks. Sometimes I decide to edit, or sometimes I wind up deleting it.

poisonedantidote's avatar

For me it just depends what mood im in and how long the question was, If I ask a real long question and it gets sent back for spelling, there is a good chance I`ll leave it there for a day or two to see if I can muster up the energy to edit. If I can’t, I just delete it thinking it was probably not worth asking in the first place.

I don’t ask many questions, and some times if I ask one, I’m only doing so because it’s a slow day, or I feel like I should really just ask something so I’m not the guy who only answers questions. If one I was not really interested in anyway gets sent back, I’ll delete it for sure.

I’M SO GODDAMN ANGRY IM ABOUT TO BAN YOU MOTHERFUCKER

Just kidding, seazen. I like you, and I didn’t notice you had a question in limbo right now.

faye's avatar

If I get a need editing question it is because I was wine fluthering so I perservere and get it wrong 3 more times and then…..

Aethelwine's avatar

@faye haha My beer fluthering questions are often the questions that get sent to editing. I usually don’t find out until the morning, then wonder why the hell I attempted such a lame question. What’s worse is when a lame question stays after beer fluthering. It’s left to torture me for the rest of my days.

faye's avatar

Yeah, I’ve had a few that I’d rather not remember.

Blueroses's avatar

I’ve only had one question sent to moderation limbo and it was pretty-much deserved I must admit. Didn’t quite have enough beer to make it worth fighting for, but it was fun while it lasted.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

Nah, I just fix them or delete them pretty quickly. I don’t think about it too much.

augustlan's avatar

Once we send it back to you for editing, we actually don’t see it again until (and unless) you resubmit it after editing. I have no clue how many questions are sitting out there in limbo-land! If you want me to pretend to be annoyed, I can… just for you. :)

seazen's avatar

Gotta lurve the Augs.

JilltheTooth's avatar

So that’s why you keep deleting your account and starting over! So the mods can’t find you and whoop your rebellious (but I’m sure adorable) little ass? Well, you certainly have me fooled every time, you clever guy!

CyanoticWasp's avatar

I don’t want to keep them on their toes. If the mods were on their toes all the time, I’d never have an answer stand in General. My plan is to lull them to sleep so that I can get an edge in there word-wise… or get a word in edge-wise, as the case may be.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@CyanoticWasp : I can personally attest to the fact that at least one mod is now too torpid from a good dinner to give a rat’s ass.

Jeruba's avatar

Certainly not. I treat the mods as gently and kindly as I can. They have a tough job and have to keep their tempers and be diplomatic and rational even when others are not. I want their lives to be easy and happy so they will keep on taking such good care of us.

Jeruba's avatar

@augustlan, there’s still the matter of the polar bear, you know. But thank you for asking.

lillycoyote's avatar

Never. I ask the questions I want to ask. It’s not like I haven’t thought about them or tried to write them in the best way I know how. If one of my questions gets modded, and it doesn’t happen very often since they added the social section, I just abandon it. As I said, I ask the questions I want to ask and if one or another of them, for whatever reason it doesn’t meet fluther standards and gets modded, then I would rather not ask the question at all than to edit it into question that I really don’t want to askb at all. Maybe that is a little arrogant but that’s the way I do it. If I can’t ask the question I want to ask, the way I want to ask it, then I abandon it. IRL, I do occasionally decide that I’d like to piss people off just for the sake of pissing them off but that’s really pretty rare for me. I really don’t like pissing people off and I find that just being myself provides enough opportunity to piss people off that I don’t have to seek out additional ways to do it.

janbb's avatar

If I have a question that gets modded, it’s usually because I’ve asked something the way I want to but Fluther doesn’t like it. It rarely happens and when it does, I usually abandon it because changing it won’t work. No biggie; being a drama queen is not my style..

seazen's avatar

<<< DRAMA QUEEN.

Blueroses's avatar

I ♥ seazen

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Blueroses : Get in line. Yes, @seazen, there’s a line.

Blueroses's avatar

@JilltheTooth I know. I tried to get past the bouncers but they sussed out my all access laminate as a forgery

seazen's avatar

It is a very exclusive club. Hence the bouncers.

Blueroses's avatar

Luckily, they aren’t resistant to my flashing my wits..

JilltheTooth's avatar

I had this whole bawdy post involving the word “bouncers” but decided to spare you guys cuz it was just kinda crass and dumb. Ah, well.

Blueroses's avatar

Darn it. I wanted to hear @JilltheTooth getting bawdy. But then it would lead to moderation action, the whole question would be in question…
How should I word a question if I want all bawdy answers while staying within mod boundaries?

Aethelwine's avatar

@Blueroses I had to rub my eyes. I thought you wrote tits. haha

janbb's avatar

@Blueroses The correct word is “modation.”

Blueroses's avatar

@jonsblond hee hee… titter…
ok then, within “modation” boundaries (thanks @janbb) there are times I just feel like contradicting my good girl image. How can I fluther-word that?

janbb's avatar

@Blueroses I do that all the time. As long as you spell it correctly, you can say just about any fuckin’ thing.

Blueroses's avatar

@janbb now I want to see you let your hair down too! I swear, we need a fluther wine party chat room. You know… for kids:)

seazen's avatar

Damn. Now all I can think about is boobs.

Blueroses's avatar

it’s boobfuckintastic’
oh sorry, wrong thread

seazen's avatar

@Blueroses No, it’s the thread alrighty.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@seazen , here you go, Boobies for you. I know Katawagrey did this for you already, but I know you can’t get enough!

seazen's avatar

I still don’t get it.

Blueroses's avatar

maybe it would become clear if we show you some tits

JilltheTooth's avatar

A slew of avian porn just for you, @seazen ! This is how much we love you…

Blueroses's avatar

heh heh. avian porn

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Blueroses : Bet his SO is wondering where he acquired the feather fetish…

janbb's avatar

I was trying to carry out the avian porn theme and googled “cocks” – OH MY!

JilltheTooth's avatar

@janbb : What??? No link?? ;-)

janbb's avatar

It was too big for a link.

MissA's avatar

Sorry @seazen
That’s what I get for being tired
and not seeing your humor marks.

seazen's avatar

@MissA That’s ok. Now join the tit, boob and cock thread – all part of the trendy avian porn theme.

<<< Talk about old and decrepit.

Blueroses's avatar

Hey @seazen! A little birdie told me you really get off on pictures of chicks

seazen's avatar

@Blueroses Wow – it’s been two days since you posted that – I think that’s the longest I’ve been away from fluther in a long time.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Blueroses : Maybe he was traumatized by this and is afraid of us now.
<rubs hands together, laughs evilly>

Blueroses's avatar

Aw, we missed you @seazen
Were you taking a spa day?

janbb's avatar

Maybe he was learning about the birds and the bees?

Blueroses's avatar

nah, @janbb, you see that would be apian porn. :-D

janbb's avatar

Yup – I guess that would bee right. Did I just make a monkey of myself?

JilltheTooth's avatar

@janbb : Beyond groaning, now!

CyanoticWasp's avatar

@janbb, honey, you have to give it up. That pun really stings… to hive heaven.

janbb's avatar

@CyanoticWasp You just don’t want to admit that i’m the queen of this hive, Drone.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Stop it! Stop it! Every time I laugh I cough!

janbb's avatar

O.K. – I’ll beehive myself.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Grrr..<kaff…kaff>

Blueroses's avatar

@janbb…choke…sputter…. great. Pass me a towel please, there’s coffee on my screen.

seazen's avatar

I was away for a whole week!!! On the one hand, I feel very proud of myself. On the other hand, well…

JilltheTooth's avatar

We missed you.

seazen's avatar

Thanks dear.

janbb's avatar

wondered where you were; although I haven’t been here much either.
