Who participates in questions/threads here, regardless of their opinion of the asker?

Asked by ucme (50031points) January 23rd, 2015

Call it an unofficial Fluther straw poll if you like…I know I won’t =0}
Some have said that they refuse to involve themselves in questions asked by those they dislike, not an attitude I share.
I guess we’re about to find out :D

jca's avatar

I try to use only my interest or knowledge in the topic as my guide. Who asks the question is not an issue for me.

If the question is one I want to answer, I’ll answer it but I generally find that idiotic people ask idiotic questions.

Earthbound_Misfit's avatar

I answer questions I feel like answering. I don’t really care who asks and I certainly answer questions posed by people I’m not overly fond of.

Aethelwine's avatar

I thought I better answer so you don’t think I don’t like you.~

ucme's avatar

Haha, this ain’t about me @jonsblond
People have always said that if they don’t like a particular jelly, they won’t answer their questions & this has always struck me as counter productive, if not a little crass.
This is a question generated environment after all, I answer regardless of my feelings for an individual, not important at all.

I don’t really hate anyone here so… yeah.

Berserker's avatar

@Mimishu1995 Well yeah, hate is a strong word. Perception only perhaps for all I know. I sure don’t like everyone here.

Still gonna answer their shit if I wanna though.

ucme's avatar

The same people who adopt this attitude then complain about the site not being what it was or that site traffic is desperately low & Fluther is dying on its feet, fucking ironic shit.

ucme's avatar

The way it should be but never has or will:
I like you, but your question is shite – Ignore
I believe you to be a prick, but your question is decent – Participate

Too much to ask in a community where egos run wild like a blind bull in a china shop, but still…

You son of a bitch, you. How dare you ask this question.

janbb's avatar

If @CWOTUS wasn’t such a know-it-all and ever asked a question, I’d be damned if I’d answer it!

dappled_leaves's avatar

@ucme So, you asked us here to insult us? How nice.

Kardamom's avatar

I go for the subject matter. I may be a little slow to choose a Q by someone I’ve known to be inflammatory (on purpose) or just plain misguided in the past, but If I’m interested in the subject, I’ll usually join in.

ucme's avatar

@dappled_leaves Of course I didn’t, but I can see how you would think that.
No one who answered could possibly be offended anyway, by definition surely.

dappled_leaves's avatar

@ucme Well, you told us here that those of us who answered are liars, so I’m not sure how we can not be insulted.

ucme's avatar

No, that perception is all yours, which is fair enough…I suppose.

dappled_leaves's avatar

@ucme Why don’t you just say what you really mean?

ucme's avatar

Haha, now you’re just being silly, calm down & read it again, only this time without the glaring cynicism.

dappled_leaves's avatar

@ucme I am perfectly calm. How’s that for misperception?

Cruiser's avatar

I have my bones to pick with certain Jellies but I do not let that stop me from answering questions including this one. :P

ucme's avatar

@dappled_leaves Well there you go, now we’re even.

ucme's avatar

@Cruiser I have no desire to pick your tiny boner :)

ucme's avatar

Phank yoo very, very much for playing, now leave quietly, I wish to sleep.

Cruiser's avatar

@ucme It is a shame that any of your answers can’t originate without reference to your or others genitals or gastric by product….gets old after 5 plus years. Just sayin…

And my subtle comment on another thread was modded off??

If I find a Q interesting and/or I have something to contribute, I’ll answer regardless of who asked the Q. You never know who else will be reading it and find it helpful either now or in the future.

I do generally tend to avoid hypothetical scenarios which are fairly ridiculous and there are a few people who tend to ask a lot of them. But it’s the Q itself rather than the asker which I find off-putting.

longgone's avatar

There is no-one whose questions I will ignore on principle. There are simply threads which don’t appeal to me.

Here’s a twist on the question. Anyone else notice when users answer a Q with an opinion of the asker? They have no helpful answer, just an opinion about their distaste for the asker.

What’s the deal with that?

dappled_leaves's avatar

@jonsblond Sometimes, it’s not distaste for the asker, it’s distaste for the question.

Aethelwine's avatar

A distaste for a question that might otherwise be considered legit had it been asked by someone else?

Mimishu1995's avatar

This is why I try to keep my answers as neutral as posssible, focusing only on the questions and not on the askers.

Cruiser's avatar

@ucme You are right….I was overly sensitive to something you said and I let it get the best of me and I want to apologize for being a big baby. ;)

ucme's avatar

@Cruiser Good lad ;-}
Just one thing, next time you kiss & make up, mouthwash & a whole thing of tic-tacs :D

Cruiser's avatar

@ucme After you thrusting your tongue down my throat there won’t be a next time! :D

ucme's avatar

@Cruiser That wasn’t my tongue :(
