You ask. We answer. We ask. You answer. Answers may or may not actually be what you were looking for in any way.

And we’re friendly. Usually.

Easy with the mortar fire, i’m a friendly. Just want to know what your experience has been.

asmonet's avatar

Good! We all love it here. :)
There are occasional spats between users but all in all we’re polite, caring, useful and fun. :)

It’s like jelly; it warps and can get wobbly, but it’s always intriguing and entertaining (did I mention I’m easily amused?)

DeanV's avatar

It’s been fun, if you want an answer from another newbie.

And also, don’t worry about time for fluther. You will find it.

So who is the trouble maker so I can sharpen up on my skills ?

peedub's avatar

Friendlies are the way to go around here. You’re on the right track JR.

Johnny_Rambo's avatar

Evasive skill, I mean.

Judi's avatar

The moderators are great so mean people are pretty quickly weeded out. Differing opinions are welcome as long as they are respectful.

Johnny_Rambo's avatar

Nice to know we have referees Judi.

cak's avatar

Welcome, rambo! It’s a pretty great place. Generally, just be respectful to others and remember you can search your subject, before you ask a question to see if it’s been asked before.

Have fun! :)

Well then, welcome to the collective @Johnny_Rambo. You will be addicted to this site in no time! :D

SuperMouse's avatar

Fluther is a place full of great people, frizzers, pancakes, the coolest moderators anywhere, some pretty bitchin founders, a cyber rock star and apparently it is a front for the CIA! Who could ask for more?

Que tal, Juan Ramboso?

Hey there, Johnny Rambo.
Welcome to Fluther!

Fluther is neat. But consider yourself forewarned—it can be rather addictive!
And what’s not to be addicted to like? Lots of colourful and knowledgeable personalities
to answer your technical questions and scratch your humour itch.

But if I had to sum it up in one word? Cozy!
Come stay awhile and see for yourself. =)

Johnny_Rambo's avatar

Thanks Nimis and all, I will visit spiratically , but consistently , I hope. I prefer to ask interesting/intriguing questions and then offer commentary.

SuperMouse's avatar

@Johnny_Rambo, odds are good that sporadically will soon become constantly. As Nimis put it, Fluther can very easily become an addiction.

asmonet's avatar

@Johnny_Rambo: And don’t get freaked if we correct your grammar or spelling, we’re just trying to be helpful and none of us mean it to be an insult. ;)

Johnny_Rambo's avatar

Ets . O kayy , Y’m beter in Spaneeesh.

marinelife's avatar

Welcome to the collective, Johnny_Rambo. It would be great if you provided a bit of detail in your profile when you get a chance.
