So, a couple of things . . . If she is happy with how she looks . . . How she feels (walking, climbing stairs . . . Etc.), then who am I to question.

If this amount of weight shortens her life expectancy and she is okay with that, then great . . . Hats … Read more

I don't see it as her inspiring young girls, or anyone for that matter, to stuff their faces with pizza. She's inspiring them to love and accept themselves, no matter what they look like. She isn't saying, "You should look like this." She's saying, "It's okay to love yourself if you look like this."

You're only fifteen, so no matter how bad you feel your teeth are I'm sure they aren't nearly as bad as what your dentist sees in his nightmares. Yes, your dentist will tell you that you need to take better care of your teeth and all that jazz, but this doesn't necessarily mean that he … Read more

Ask was the first q and a site I ever joined. I loved if there, and met some nice people. Most of them are here now. The only thing I miss now is that it seemed like every 2 minutes, there was a new question to answer. Questions are not asked that often here.

Miss the people---yes, some.

Never used the mobile app.

Some of the questions---oh no!

Good sized community membership---more questions, broader range.

I'm not sure I would even consider re-joining if they became available again---but I suppose I would check it out out of curiosity..

So, on balance, I don't miss it.

There was a broader spectrum of people to debate . . . So I miss that.

This one has a much better way of posting media content. I like to SHARE information via TED Talks, or NPR, and this format allows for that sort of presentation.

not really the people were great but that site was heavily moderated, you had to think hard about the question you were about to ask this site gives you far more freedom

I do miss Ask since it was the first Q&A site that I joined. There were some things I didn't like - the favoritism, for one thing. There have been ups and down with this site; hopefully those are past us now.

I used to really like Ask, but after I became comfortable here I'm much happier. Almost all of my favorites from Ask made it here. I don't miss the favoritism of Ask, the daily trolling by a few certain members who were allowed to. I don't miss being reprimand d daily for calling people out.

I liked ASK a lot .  It was the first site I ever joined. Met some very nice people most moved here but we lost some. I was one of the ones that held on to the very last minute. I didn't like the "Time Outs".

I missed Ask a lot when it first closed down but I feel just a comfortable on Blurtit now. Most of my friends made it here but there are a few who didn't.

I wasn't on there very long before it crashed, but I did like the app. Because of the app I was one of the people who was clinging on for the site's last breath. That is also when I met two very nice ladies. Most of the other people I met there are also on … Read more
