Does anyone else find the Fluther greetings below your screen names to be creepy?

Asked by Introverted_Leo (1957points) January 16th, 2009

I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. :P Actually, I think they’re kinda funny sometimes, but sitll…

“Let’s go out together.”

You’re an automated greeting system. Control yourself.

I’ve never got that one. Mostly they complain about my desk being a mess (which it is).

I find it charming. Fluther would undoubtedly be the best thing on the internet if they were pre-recorded by Stephen Fry and played when you mouseOver them…

figbash's avatar

I love ‘em! I hope they add more.

Also check out this question from last night.

@johanspun: Great idea!

@johanspun: I’d find that especially creepy and would probably never turn my sound on again. :P

Not creepy at all. I love them!

johanspun's avatar

@Introverted_Leo Granted, some would be doubly weird but I think the site kinda matches his approach… Just listen to his Little Big Planet vocals!

The “You look great today but your desk is a mess” is a little creepy to me…because it’s Always true!

The “We missed you” and “We love you” are kind of strange though…

Introverted_Leo's avatar

@seekingwolf: lol, that would be creepy in your case if it’s true.

I want the cake one again, but I actually want the cake…

johanspun's avatar

Woah. Just got “That’s not true, you look nothing like the Chupacabra.” Raising questions about who it’s talking to… And who ‘it’ actually is? Is the site talking to us, or is it the developers?

Introverted_Leo's avatar

It’s like this all-seeing, all-understanding, multi-faceted programmed eye…thing.

seekingwolf's avatar

I just got the “take off your cost, stay a while”

This is true too! I’m wearing my coat because it’s cold!
creepy! Fluther stop looking in at me! shift eyes

johanspun's avatar

Is there anywhere that lists all of the things it says? Should there be?

dlm812's avatar

While some of them are a bit odd – and a little too true – mostly the greetings are one of the highlights of my day (is that lame?). I had a particularly good one the other day, although I don’t remember the exact wording. Right now I have “Tag, you’re it.” which makes me kind of playful. :)

I found it a little creepy the one time fluther told me it wanted to make sweet lovin to me in a dark alley, but aside from that, no i dont think they are creepy.

Introverted_Leo's avatar

“It’s been so lonely without you…”

@uberbatman:’re pulling our collective legs.

augustlan's avatar

I lurve them.

chelseababyy's avatar

Nope. They make my day. Like, everyday.

We. Drink. Your. MILKSHAKE.
I agree

My favorite is:

We were wondering when you would stop by.

90s_kid's avatar

They sometimes creep me out.
Wanted to say that because someone edited their answer.

Introverted_Leo's avatar

I didn’t know where else to put this, but I think there’s a new one:

“You have that certain je ne sais quoi.”

augustlan's avatar

Do you still find them creepy…or have you been seduced by their charm?

Introverted_Leo's avatar

<sighs> Yeah, I got over it. :P

Hambayuti's avatar

I’m a newbie. I haven’t even been on for an hour but I personally think they’re funny…or maybe I just haven’t been here long enough. Hmmmm…I will need to get back to you on this.
