Meta Question

lillycoyote's avatar

No one has asked a question in at least an hour, so I'm asking ... what question would you ask if you didn't think it would get modded for one reason or another?

Asked by lillycoyote (24835points) November 28th, 2011

That’s pretty much it. Questions get modded for all sorts of reasons. You have probably, or at least may have, asked questions that were modded and you were unable to edit them in a way that satisfied fluther guidelines. I certainly have.

the Mods are good at letting people ask just about any real question, as long as we use semi-proper wording and correct spelling.

@DrBill I don’t know. I have a fairly decent mastery of my native tongue and my questions get shot down with some regularity. Or at least they used to. I’ve been on a bit of a winning streak lately, but there’s no telling how long that will last. I’m not whining or complaining; just telling you my experience.

“Who is your favorite mod?” Kidding!

lillycoyote's avatar

@augustlan LOL. That’s a good one. I’m guessing that would be modded as possibly self-promoting, yes? And there would be the whole naming of names issue. There might also be issues involving ethic peculiar to mods but it’s at least s double whammy. I like that one. :-)

Who in Fluther would you like to sleep with?

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

never cared if I got modded on a q (or at least I don’t now…maybe when I started, some edits bothered me)...if they want something changed, I’d just adjust it…I rarely drop a question because of modding or get mad at the mods…

What is some good secret personal information you know about specific flutherers that would make for the most titillating gossip?

DrBill's avatar

@keobooks
I know a lot of personal secrets, I would not fear them being modded, I would fear betraying and losing my friends. (I never tell secrets)

“Why are some people such dumb c**ts?”

keobooks's avatar

@DrBill I don’t actually want to know any secrets… I was trying to think of the most inappropriate and most likely to be instantly modded question. But if you ever want to dish.. feel free.. pfft.

@janbb Well, we don’t know what people look like. That’s a big factor.

keobooks's avatar

I woke up and found this odd looking mole on my butt. <HERE> is a link with a picture of it. Does it look normal to you?

HungryGuy's avatar

@janbb – There are several people here who would be fun to sleep with (or do other things with, also :-p

Sorry, can’t name names.

TheIntern55's avatar

@HungryGuy I hope that doesn’t mean you’ve had experience in bed with jellies. ;)

erichw1504's avatar

Had a great nekked pancake party last night, who do you think had the hottest nekked bod?

HungryGuy's avatar

@TheIntern55 – Nope. Never had the opportunity to play in bed (or in dungeon) with a jelly :-(

Is anal fisting dangerous; could one break ones fingers in the process?

keobooks's avatar

While I was anal fisting @rebbel I found this strange mole on his butt…<HERE> is a link to a picture of it. Does it look normal to you?

(sorry, couldn’t resist)

janbb's avatar

Are all my Jelly friends really weird or does it just seem that way?

rebbel's avatar

@keobooks It may look brownish of color, but it is not a mole….

Did the US declare war on pakistan over the weekend so as to provoke more fundamentalist islamic terrosits to atack them?

lillycoyote's avatar

@keobooks and others. LOL. Good for you. I just tossed this question off last night because I was bored and nobody was asking any questions but you’ve certainly got the gist of it. The question isn’t really about modding or about serious questions, but what would you ask if you weren’t certain it was totally against guidelines and would never fly on fluther.

YARNLADY's avatar

What I would like to know, I can’t exactly put in words, but I might be able to kind of get the sense of it, only I’m not sure I could make it clear enough for people to understand it.

Q: What does it mean if I have a dream that my boyfriend was talking to a kind hearted woman?

Details:
Do it mean he like me for only or do it mean he’s for the stamey evening or should I fide anoter male online dating sit?

Lightlyseared's avatar

@Kardamom i think thats the shortest answer I’ve ever seen you write.

rebbel's avatar

@Lightlyseared And no links in it too ;-)

Looks like a lurve fest. Danged, I missed it.

linguaphile's avatar

Why is a ribbon, the halfhearted looking glass, and an unsightly gypsy what got the Interloper into trouble?
Details: Now and then, another taxidermist living with a bodice ripper befriends a halfhearted menagé à trois. Jean-Pierre, although somewhat soothed by an onlooker near the dissident and the toothache, still prefers her from a piroshki, ignore her a guardian angel from a piroshki with some lunatic behind the midwife, and bestows great honor upon the dark side of her toothache.
Grammar, perfect. Modded for being idiotic. Relegated into Fluther History with the Frizzer.

lillycoyote's avatar

@linguaphile I had this one shot down, basically for being idiotic, idiotic in a different way than yours maybe,in a just plain stoopid way; I know it is, I get that:

Do you think elderly or disabled Weebles have trouble convincing 911 operators that they really have fallen and can’t get up?

Details: Most of us think: Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down, right? But is that really true or is it just a stereotype? Or maybe it’s true when they are young and healthy, but, like all of us, they have issues and become frail and unstable when they get older. I would hate to think that there are elderly Weebles out there, lying on their floors, crying out, and no one will help them because people think their having fallen down is just a big joke.

linguaphile's avatar

@lillycoyote LAUGHING!!!! I knew there was a reason I liked you! XD

Bellatrix's avatar

Lol @Lilly… I love that question. Wobbly weebles and unsympathetic 911 operators.

janbb's avatar

I feel like a wobbly old Weeble today.

I had a dream last night about the end of the world and in order to save it I had to solve this math problem, but my ex-boyfriend got in the way, do you think he still likes me?
