Well, you could invite them to join fluther and answer themselves (once the site is public)

You’re allowed 2 “lifeline” responses per week.

Otherwise you must skip the question.

You write to the person who may know the answer and give them the link and ask them to go to the public question if they have a response. If the question is private then the knowledgable one answers back to you and you forward the answer.
That is correct in the terra firma world so I think the watery world could do so too.

You can always answer with “Someone I know says…”

Man, this is pretty rad!

This is the oldest question I’ve seen yet.

@Dutchess_III The question about salt and pepper is the first question asked by Ben. What is so special about salt and pepper? Sorry I can’t give a link for I am on my smartphone.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Wow. I actually got in on that under my Dutchess12 name, which was my 2nd incarnation here.
All the Jelly’s gone. :(

Answer it anyway, take a shot in the dark.

NomoreY_A's avatar

I answer any question that grabs my interest, and I don’t know my hole from an ass in the ground.

Dutchess_III's avatar

As a teacher I would never take “shot in the dark” unless I told them it was a guess. Otherwise I’d tell them I didn’t know but would find out.

First Meta question!

Wait a minute…was there even a Meta section in 2006? Do moderators retroactively add questions to Meta?

Dutchess_III's avatar

We didn’t get different sections until…2009 or 10 I think. Originally all questions were treated as General. Then, when they decided to make different sections with different rules, it’s possible when they came across old questions that didn’t really belong in general, they reassigned it.
