To all my Askville friends, I'm HERE now!

Asked by MarshallO (581points) August 28th, 2008

Askville is in a a state of complete “self-destruction”, and—despite “fighting the good fight”—the good guys have LOST! I hope to see a lot of my ol’ Askville friends on here!

Askville? What’s Askville?

wrestlemaniac's avatar

Welcome, your free to stay with us as long as you want.

NecroKing's avatar

Sound the welcome music :)

wildflower's avatar

Welcome! but it’s Fluther (f-l-u-t-h-e-r), we’re Fluther friends here….

NecroKing's avatar

I think he means his friends on Askville, not fluther, you know another place…something.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

Askville, so it’s like another type of fluther?

wildflower's avatar

I am well aware of the Askville influx, I’m merely trying to encourage integration….perhaps I shouldn’t

IchtheosaurusRex's avatar

I’m here every day now. I still can’t tear myself away from the home beat, though. It’s like that soap opera, where you hate all the players, but you have to tune in every day to keep up with the goings-on.

tedibear's avatar

Happy to see you Marshall!

@wildflower, yes, encouraging integration is good. It just takes a bit to get used to getting away from “askvilleness.”

@wrestlemaniac – sort of. Check it out. I have found less drama here, but I also don’t look for it!

Hi, Marshall – good to see you, again!

NecroKing's avatar

the hero has returned form battle.

iwamoto's avatar

The Asksis Of Evil ?

just kidding, welcome, but just keep it in the askvillains topic, ok ?

NecroKing's avatar

Me and Wrestle can both take care of the situation in askville. Give the word and peace will be restored.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

We’re ready.

TheHaight's avatar

Wrestle and Necro: do you guys like, call eachother up and say “hey let’s get on Fluther and answer questions together!” because it seems fishy. Just wondering,

Oh, and welcome Marshall!! ;). I’m not from askville though but I (and all us flutherites) can no be your Fluther friends.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

Yeah, pretty much that, and we’re 25% psychic. (maybe kidding) but anyway I’m confused at the “can no be your fluther friends”.

TheHaight's avatar

NOW *** I tried editing the answer but can’t scroll down on iPhone.

Really? Alright. I just thought you two were the same people… At times.

(you should craft a response at the same time! )..

NecroKing's avatar

Well we did know each other since we were very young.

McBean's avatar

Hi Marshall. Want a snack?

wrestlemaniac's avatar

I got the drinks.

NecroKing's avatar

I got the smokes.

McBean's avatar

NecroKing, are you Wrestle’s age? What are you doing with smokes? <asks the mom>

Darknymph's avatar

tsk, tsk, tsk, and Marshall you can stay with me, if you want. :)

NecroKing's avatar

I’m 17 and I don’t smoke, I said that as a joke, to fit the conversation.

McBean's avatar

@NecroKing: ;-)

wrestlemaniac's avatar

Smoking is bad for your health, it kills you.

wildflower's avatar

Guns are bad for your health too….

wrestlemaniac's avatar

What does that have to do with anything?

wildflower's avatar

just saying…smoking might be bad, but most things are…

Eureka's avatar

Hi Marshall! Now – who said they had drinks!!

MarshallO's avatar

Hi, everybody! Sorry it took so long to reply, but I’ve been out most of the day, and—in fact—am leaving again in a few minutes to go pick-up one of my cats at the veterinary hospital.

Thanks for welcoming me, one and all! I hope that that “hot tub party” is still going when I get back!

Your ol’ bud’ from “that other place”,

MARSHALL

NecroKing's avatar

Here’s some of my guards for your protection.

MarshallO's avatar

My cat had a relapse, and I therefore wasn’t able to go pick her up, so I’m back. However, I haven’t a clue as to what some of you are now talking about on here, so I’m going to go check-out that “hot tub party”. If it no longer exists, I’m signing-off.

By the way, how does one get into a “chat” with people you know on here? Do you always have to ask a “question”, or go to the discussion of someone-you-know’s question in order to be in one?

Thanks!

@wildflower: GUNS are not bad for your health. BULLETS traveling at a high speed and impacting with your anatomy, are.

MarshallO's avatar

Gosh—this is a great site! Being ignored is LOTS of fun!

Bye!

JackAdams's avatar

That was quick. In and out, in less than a day…

MarshallO – the chat room made for AVers is still open so if you need to talk to someone one on one in real time, you and that person can always head there. Did that answer your Q? If not, can you be more specific?

lollipop's avatar

Hi MarshallO, Glad to see you made it over here. Hope you give it a few days at least to try.

Try popping into the ‘chat room’ that Pnl spoke about.

Larssenabdo's avatar

MARSHALL! Yippee! WOOT!

wildflower's avatar

@JackAdams: You are correct. Pardon my simplistic take on it :)
But then, you could argue it’s similar to a cigarette not being bad for you, the smoke from it traveling through your airways is.

JackAdams's avatar

Now you understand… LOL

August 29, 2008, 1:41 AM EDT

wildflower's avatar

Yes. Thank you ever so much for enlightening me!

cyndyh's avatar

Hi, MarshallO! It’s good to see you. I hope you do give a few days at least. Cheers!

Larssenabdo's avatar

Marshall, what is the story with your cat?

iwamoto's avatar

he owns a cat…

cyndyh's avatar

I suspect his cat owns him because that’s the way with cats.

lollipop's avatar

His cat is/was in the ‘hospital’, I believe he is supposed to be able to get it out today (Friday).

wrestlemaniac's avatar

I hope cat gets better.

NecroKing's avatar

@Pnl I can’t log on the site!! how do I do it?

Darknymph's avatar

Calm down, Gooose fraaabaaa (anger managment movie)

jlm11f's avatar

@NK – what site? please PM me details of your problem. so we don’t go off topic here

MarshallO's avatar

I haven’t left Fluther yet, but in many of the discussion boards I’ve been in so far, going “off topic”—and ignoring many of the other answerers in the process—seems to be annoyingly common.

As for my cat, I got her back from the hospital today. Thanks to those of you who showed care and concern over that.

jlm11f's avatar

@marshallo – actually going off topic for too long is against fluther guidelines/rules. if you see any such threads, please flag them for the moderators to view. generally though, poll-type Qs and Qs that have already been answered (as in problem is solved) or has been answered by a good amount of people, are allowed to go off topic.

greylady's avatar

Hi Marshall! Glad to hear your cat is home again. Hope she is back to feeling well, and you, too!

MarshallO's avatar

@PnL & greylady: Thanks for your replies!

Mugsie's avatar

Hi MarshallO ~ I am here too! I took a week off over you know where. Now I just have to readjust and get used to here! How are you? Kelly

lollipop's avatar

Hi MarshallO~glad to see you here. I am going to be on here for a while anyway.

Mugsie's avatar
