Why NOT use the "fun" button??? (If an answer makes me laugh or smile, I use it all the time!) I just wish there was a button that said "I'm laughing too hard, that I can't breathe!!" Since I have been on this site there have been a few, albeit VERY FEW, of those types of postings, but it would be nice to award something like that to the comedians on here that deserve such recognition. (Or at least before their postings get taken off by the mods.)

ThankYou, what is that frame around your profile?
Report as
the frame and the logo below it means I am a Community Moderator here at Ask... an Ask employee who monitors the site, makes sure everyone follows the rules, keeps track of and reports bugs/glitches and tries to help when we can.

Get to know that logo and frame, ONLY Ask moderators have them so don't believe anyone who says they work for Ask if they don't have that :) Also notice the Ask Moderator badge part is below the avatar pic not a part of it that is another way to tell someone who is a fraud ;)

Once you get addicted, you may have to give yourself "timeouts" so you can like, pursue a real life, even if that means heading down to a local bar and interacting with people without an "electronic curtain" between you and the folks you interact with. ALSO...DO NOT under any circumstances wonder why some of your questions, answers, and comments get pulled, by the moderators. Some mysteries of the Universe just need to remain mysteries. Welcome aboard.

Yeah that reminds me: It does help somewhat to read people's profile first on here. The key word being "somewhat".

Welcome, Lui, to our Ask family, honey! You've already received some really great advice from the others on here. Really, just be as helpful as you possibly can to people who ask questions. Don't bother to answer questions you don't know the answers to. As someone else said, some will answer with "I don't know." Don't answer a question with, "Why would you ask a question like that?" Yep, seen that one, too! Just by the way you've asked your question, it's evident you're a very polite and caring person. So just be yourself. And when someone takes the time to thank you for your answer, always take the time to thank them back. You're going to do just great, darlin'! Hope you really enjoy this, Lui. And, again. welcome!

Thanks a lot! You are a very nice lady, I think I shall follow you! & I will take your advice! :D
Report as
Well, you're so very welcome, and very sweet too! I'm very honored, Lui, that you're going to follow me. I hope I never disappoint you, my dear! I answered a math question tonight (when I'm allergic to numbers) and come to find out, I was just kinda 1/2 right! BTW, I DO know that was a fraction. >:-)
Report as
We've got a winner, here! Lui used "I shall" instead of "I will"! Somebody listened in English class!
Report as
Works both ways!
Report as
Yes, Ma'am. I'm thinking I'd better watch my P's and Q's around you! LOL
