So you want to ask "how can I get or install ubuntu?" but worry about being flamed for asking that (so-called) silly question ... fear not .. Launchpad answers all your questions ..oops, its real people (volunteers) who actually take the time out to answer your questions :-)

LP also has a feature that suggests possible similar questions. But I would like to see something like the irc factoid bot which processes incoming questions and answers repetitive questions automatically .... That would be so cool.
