We’re not supposed to talk about that. (Only kind of joking – I discovered it when my previous question site exploded with drama. But mentioning that site usually gets a pretty strong response from some people here.)

I don’t remember how or when I found it probably a google search for something.

But, I must have put my email address in, because a couple weeks ago, I got an email asking me to verify my account. I’m not sure if i have left since…

I heard about it the same unmentionable place EmpressPixie did.

Oh, and welcome!

I was Googling for something and the question I was searching for was a fluther question and it provided me a good answer, so I signed up :).

Disgruntled Askvillians kept mentioning it in Discussion Boards as “the other question/answer site”, proclaming it less messy and generally happier.

I saw a LOLcat where a cat was ‘typing’ on a laptop.

The macro was “I’m in ur Fluther, answering ur questions.” (Or something like that). My first reaction was, “What the heck is fluther?”

Why did Gail’s answer get mod’d?

robmandu's avatar

@Nimis, just a guess, but she might’ve flagged it as a “duplicate” to get it removed. That’s never worked for me, though… but then, I’m not family.

i googled something for personal advice and some of the other alternatives were sites like this. i chose this one first, asked a question, got a response from marina and been on ever since.

When I got the iPhone, Fluther was one of the sponsored websites that had created iPhone versions.

@Nim and Rob; Duped, dopey, didn’t delete. Feshumult, flagged , fixed.

I thought that you were just being your raunchy self again, Gail.

my house had fleas and i was googling fleas in my desperation to fix the problem, and i came upon this site. i didn’t put much thought into my screen name because i wasn’t planning to make fluther a big part of my life. i just wanted to discuss my flea issue. now i wish i made my name a little more interesting. anyway, that’s how Fluther Found Me!

I saw an article named something like “Better than the name indicates” somewhere online (where?!), read, investigated and have been here since.
