Yes, but mainly because I want to know who has maxed out their lurve for me.

tinyfaery's avatar

Nah, not really. I would like to know who I am maxed out on, without having to give a GA and refresh.

Yeah, that’d be cool.

(I’m trying, daloon. I’m trying. ;-)

It’d be interesting, but all in all, not knowing doesn’t drive me crazy.

justwannaknow's avatar

Sure. I think it would be a good thing , but only for the receiver to know, not everybody.

I already know for the most part through interactions. When you start attaching a name to lurve then people get weird.
If you give someone a lot of lurve and they don’t reciprocate, some people get upset. We don’t need Fluther to become another myspace drama factory.

@justwannaknow oh, that’d be a good idea.

jrpowell's avatar

Once I found out Allie could see I stopped giving it to her. It just felt strange.

I like the anonymity.

aLeXiE347's avatar

Yes, really badly lol

Aethelwine's avatar

No. The mystery makes it interesting.

I do not want to know nor would I want others to know I lurved them. (Why does that sound stalkerish?)

chyna's avatar

@Dog I’ve wondered if you were a stalker.

oratio's avatar

No, not a good idea. It would just make people lurve people instead of good answers even more.

aprilsimnel's avatar

I don’t care either way.

janbb's avatar

I’d be curious to know who I’ve maxed out on and who has maxed out on me.

basp's avatar

No. Don’t wanna know. Like someone else said… Then the lurve will be more for a person rather than a response.

skfinkel's avatar

I just learned about getting maxed out by some people—and it might be kind of fun to know who gave you so much lurve, but I think the downside is greater than that little piece of curiosity. I think the anonymity in giving and getting lurve is a good thing.

It could also be that people can write you to say that they tend to like your comments, and then you would know who they are.

casheroo's avatar

I’m curious, but don’t actually want to know.

Bluefreedom's avatar

I think the Lurve Anonymity Factor (LAF) is probably the best idea for reasons already stated. Lurve for your genuine and meaningful efforts in giving a great answer as opposed to Lurve for who you are is what is more important in my eyes.

justwannaknow's avatar

Lot of good answers here. Convinced me to change my mind. Keep it secret.

knitfroggy's avatar

I was wondering…can you only receive so much lurve from the collective in a day or from one person? I’m confused about that.

augustlan's avatar

@knitfroggy It’s not a daily limit, or a total lurve from the collective limit, but a limit from any one member. Once I’ve maxed out on lurve for you, (which I may have already) you’ll still get the Great Answer or Great Question, but it won’t increase your points.

And no, I don’t want to know. Even though I can see with my SuperMod powers ~, I don’t pay a bit of attention to it!

knitfroggy's avatar

@augustlan Thanks for clearing that up for me! I was curious

gooch's avatar

Yes I would like to know… Remember when you could get all the lurve you wanted?

cak's avatar

I’m not going to say I’m not curious, but I think it’s best not to know.

As soon as everbody is able to tell who is giving whom lurve, Fluther will revert to eighth grade.
