I think I just had a panic attack at the thought!!!!!!

phoenyx's avatar

I would help @johnpowell, who, I’m sure, would be reviving it.

CMaz's avatar

I would finally be free!!! FREE I TELL YA!!! FREEEEEEEE!

gailcalled's avatar

I am on a listserv with 125 of my college classmates. I would stick to it.

Snarp's avatar

Probably not specifically. I would find some other way to procrastinate. Or maybe I would just be more productive?

figbash's avatar

Eh – probably not. I think this site and its personality has grown pretty organically over the years and the founders have established a culture that wouldn’t be that easy to duplicate elsewhere.

If another, long-time Flutherer started one that had some aspects, maybe, but I’ve seen many other Q&A sites and they just lack the maturity, wisdom, insight and generosity that this site does.

Yes…I’m already on another site that’s members only by invitation. It’s not open to the general public. So I’d go there full time.

I’d eat a lot of fish and hibernate until the new airow is up.

gemiwing's avatar

I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I’d just read more blogs. There just isn’t another QA site like this one.

baileysmom12's avatar

I doubt it. My last site might as well have gone belly up, if Fluther went away I figure I was a jinx to Q&A sites and just stick to making prank phone calls.

willbrawn's avatar

@gemiwing i totally agree

If Fluther ended I would stop viewing Q&A sites.

marinelife's avatar

No, nothing else would be the same.

scotsbloke's avatar

I’ll be honest and say yes, I probably definately would. but where I dunno. This is a good and popular site though so is it likely?

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

This is my last attempt. I’d switch off the computer and go back to books and classical music. Things like Assbook or invitation-only sites make me want to throw up.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

I don’t know. Guess we’ll have to see.

zephyr826's avatar

I’d be done. I don’t actually have the time for fluther as it is, but I stay because I love it here. If fluther would to die, I’d be done as well.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

I’d probably relocate to the living room where the TV is. No other Q&A sites for me, Fluther is one of a kind.

Aethelwine's avatar

@zephyr826 I feel the same as you.

RedPowerLady's avatar

I’d wait for some Flutherites to attempt to recreate the group and join that one. If they needed help, and I could manage to do so, then I would help.

faye's avatar

@baileysmom12 made me smile! Fluther has been a lifesaver for me! Years ago a talk radio station I listened to went off the air, I felt sucker punched. Guess it would be the same with Fluther. Some days I spend mostly in bed, TV was eating my brain cells and I read until my eyes popped.

No. I like the founders, design of fluther. Not going to get that anywhere else. It’s personal and well-maintained. Nice community of people; good stuff. Found it by accident wouldn’t bother going in search of a replacement if it went away.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@baileysmom12 -I like the way you think! :)

aprilsimnel's avatar

Ask MetaFilter. Which I’m still a part of.

peedub's avatar

Nope. I’d go home and go to bed.

SilentPurr's avatar

I have a wee collection of Q&A sites I visit already. So, yes ~ I’d find another location to spend my evenings.

laureth's avatar

I’ve been a member of online fora since 1990. Fluther is far from my first, and it’s probably far from my last.

baileysmom12's avatar

@faye I lost one of my radio talk shows too. I used to listen to Art Bell a lot. Guess that expalins a little me a little more,,huh?
@lucillelucillelucille Thank you, thank you very much….did you see my lip curl up on that one?? :):):)

faye's avatar

@baileysmom12 Art Bell morphed into The George Norry show after midnight where I live. I sometimes turn it on if I’m wakeful. Strange but interesting sometimes.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@baileysmom12 -Yes!and where did you get that white jumpsuit??

cookieman's avatar

I’d camp out on Ben or Andrew’s doorstep and hold my breath until Fluther returned.

JustPlainBarb's avatar

I would just continue to happily do my farming and run my cafe on Facebook!! Honestly, I think we’d all survive!!

Haleth's avatar

I wouldn’t find another Q&A site. I like everything about Fluther, from the thoughtfulness of the content to the little jokes to the jellyfish art. I like thinking about people’s problems and writing, so I might start a blog or write some more stories. Actually, I’d probably be a hell of a lot more productive.

boffin's avatar

2012 already?

ccrow's avatar

I wasn’t on one before Fluther; I don’t remember how I found my way here. But I probably wouldn’t look for another site…

cookieman's avatar

@jeffgoldbloomsprivatefacilities: Exactly. Except I’d be playing “Under the Sea”.

LTaylor's avatar

Well I just relocated from Answerbag, I guess I could do it again.
