I get more pride from asking a very good question. Asking a good question takes skill.

Wait!
You’re meant to feel pride at getting some silly arse numbers attributed to your Q&A’s?

Really? :D

I have received some helpful, funny or just plain interesting answers during my short time back here.
I am not proud of this. Lol!

I like getting lurve as a tiny, tiny bit of validation that I wrote something worth reading for a second – that may have made someone smile, or think.

Pride is a bit of a stretch.

Sorry I miss read the question. I thought that It was contraband, not contributed. Lol.

Neither. I pay absolutely no attention to it whatsoever. I honestly don’t care.

When I was in grade school gold stars on a wall didn’t mean much. It was hard to motivate me. Fluther Lurve is a second chance to say that I care. I was on the road to no where.

Both equally. Same pride as when others understand just what the heck I’m talking about.

kritiper's avatar

Asking a question just for the sake of asking doesn’t generate any pride for me, or respect for anyone else.

Answering.

My questions are generally asked for my own benefit, and hopefully some other people might have been wondering the same thing, but not necessarily. For a good answer, I’m hopefully helping the OP, and anyone else who is reading the answer.

If I cared about lurve I wouldn’t have created and deleted so many accounts.

Some might say that pride goeth before destruction and an haughty spirit before a fall but like Frau Farbissina I say Lies, All Lies

The only lurve that counts is that which the moderators deign to convey.
