Since there is no way to delete on fluther, what if someone wants or needs to erase their internet presence?
Last Answer : As far as I remember, the Fluther team is only willing to help you in a specific case/question/answer.

Why do I remember answering this question a while ago, but I don't see it on this user's question list?
Last Answer : I see a “Hide on profile” option for all the questions in my account. Perhaps she hid it. The “else” in the subject line suggests there was a previous instance. I wouldn’t venture to speculate on explanations.

Can the 'Message'' rearange your PM coversations to exclude the other conversations? See detail.

How long can it take to get to 10k?
Last Answer : It used to be possible in just a few months. Now it would probably take a lot longer because the user base is so much smaller than it used to be. There's a cap on how many points you can be ... we're here for. Really about all the score means is a rough indicator of how long you've been around.

Does anyone here know how to start a cryptocurrency called a Fluther or Lurve?
