Did anyone ever notice that this dude comments on every single article on YWN?!?!?!?
In fact, I am starting to think that he works for YWN.
Whatcha think people?January 23, 2013 11:27 pm at 11:27 pm #1114268
You are behaving very true to your username…good work.
Who cares?? Seriously.January 23, 2013 11:34 pm at 11:34 pm #1114269
Thanks, SHNITZY…(rolls eyes like Michelle OooooBaMa)…
Now, back to this highly important issue, what’s up with akuperma?
I mean, come on. Every single story he has things to say. Do you think he works for YWN, and if not I suggest he get’s his own column on YWN. Does anyone agree?January 24, 2013 3:45 am at 3:45 am #1114270
While I disagree with and am sometimes annoyed with YWN’s moderation policy on one point (allowing zerods whose hashkafah is clearly YCT-conservadox to post here), I can honestly say that YWN is the only Jewish news source that clearly does NOT use shill posters to generate debate.January 24, 2013 3:56 am at 3:56 am #1114271
Bear: Does vin use shill posters?January 24, 2013 3:59 am at 3:59 am #1114272
No, we don’t work for YWN.January 24, 2013 4:17 am at 4:17 am #1114273
We?January 24, 2013 4:37 am at 4:37 am #1114274
According to some, you’d be in the best position to know that. 😉January 24, 2013 9:02 am at 9:02 am #1114275
TLKY – It’s probably husband and wife using the same log in.January 24, 2013 9:03 am at 9:03 am #1114276
Yenta – Who cares that akuperma posts on “every” article on YWN? It’s a free world isn’t it? If you don’t like it, don’t read the comments? Akuperma happens to be one of the most logical, well-spoken, non-antagonizing members of the CR. I wouldn’t suggest starting up with a particular poster.January 24, 2013 10:06 am at 10:06 am #1114277
doesn’t matter if he works for ywn or not, he’s got something to say about everything. seems like a guy who’s that religious should spend more time learning and less time on the internet.January 24, 2013 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #1114278
I like Akuperma – We (my brother and I) used to read the articles about the separate bus spitting incidents and all that, and we used to sit and wait for Akuperma to post. He (?) always has a clever comment, a sharp summary or something interesting to post!
Kol haKavod, and keep on posting!January 24, 2013 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #1114279
I can only tryMember
I agree with the posters who stuck up for “akuperma”.
Is it really appropriate to create a thread just to gossip about another poster?January 24, 2013 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #1114280
Like Nechama and Yekke, I find him to be very sensible and on the ball. The only problem with him commenting on the news is that he could have been participating here instead. The news comments get swallowed up after a day. Over here, as long as the topic lives it sticks.January 24, 2013 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #1114281
Apukerma is a pretty decent poster, though I disagree with outlook on the recent elections. I just don’t understand his enjoyment in posting comments that 90% of the time no one responds to.
It’s really annoying; talking to yourself.January 24, 2013 6:46 pm at 6:46 pm #1114282
uneeq: There are many many more people who read comments who never post a thing themselves, than there are posters. A comment that has no response still has many readers.January 24, 2013 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #1114283
I often disagree with your comments, but they are never trivial or stupid. More often than not, I learn from them. Please akuperma keep commenting. This website has plenty of posters who are modern orthodox and more chadash than MO, why should akuperma be the one and the only one targeted by censorship.January 24, 2013 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #1114284
Confucious: No matter how much I am sure that I am right about the things I comment about, I feel it is all worthless if I don’t get to hear anyones attempts to refute my beliefs. I don’t like living in a bubble, and commenting to myself out loud is IMO, life in one big bubble.January 24, 2013 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #1114285
I sometimes agrree, and sometimes disagree, with akuperma’s posts, but either way, they usually make me think.January 24, 2013 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #1114286
It’s not a bubble. It’s a stage. You are talking to many readers. Right now he is even lucky enough to get feedback, even though he didn’t ask for it.January 25, 2013 1:51 am at 1:51 am #1114287
I notice that akuperma ONLY posts on threads in the CR when they are one of the top five threads. IOW, the 5 threads that appear on the main page. He never posts on a thread when it isn’t on the top 5, even if someone addresses a comment directly to him. Obviously he never looks at the front page of the CR and only clicks on threads from the main page of YWN.January 25, 2013 2:24 am at 2:24 am #1114288
First of all who cares?! Second of all Loshon Harah u aren’t ppl gettingall the wake up calls that Hashem is sending us rly comeon ppl just keep getting hit by cars I mean my bestfriendwas just hit bh nothing happens but itseveryting and I don’t ever remember looking up daily news and reading everyday fires everywhere please just take the wake up call beforegod sends us harsher ones we need mishmash just stop please thnk u I know that I cnt manage another day without moshiachJanuary 25, 2013 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #1114289
Is maybe akuperma is popa’s other screenname that he uses for the main board. That would explain the “we” – they are referring to their split personalityJanuary 25, 2013 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #1114290
How does he almost always seem to manage to get the first comment in on every story on (the main page of) YWN that he posts on?January 26, 2013 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #1114291
i like his comments – don’t necessarily agree with all of them, but most of the time find them insightful. the one who said, nobody responds…well, look how much attention he’s getting here! he clearly has acquired quite a readership!November 3, 2014 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #1114293
Here are several links in which you advocate for “Jewish autonomy” within an Arab state in the land of Israel:November 3, 2014 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #1114294
Until 200 years ago, virtually all Jewish communities in the world were hareidi and were autonomous. In the 18th century, when a Jew wanted a divorce, he or she went to Beis Din, even in what is now the United States. All Jewish communities were expected to run their own institutions, without government funding, and all Jews were expected to use the Jewish institutions rather than the government’s (which, at the time, were usually run by the local church in Christian countries). With the “enlightenment” we started losing autonomy, and when some Jews responded by demanding control over the goyim’s institutions, we started having troubles.November 3, 2014 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #1114295
to answer for akuperma(n)
he believes that arabs should rule over eretz yisrael, and the chareidim would sort of be like a governor but really the arabs rule it, henceforth no problem
jmoNovember 3, 2014 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #1114296
Is it halachically permitted for Jews to set up a governing body in the land of Israel?
Either it’s assur for both haredim and zionists, or muttar for both.November 4, 2014 12:03 am at 12:03 am #1114297
un run arab state it shouldnt be completly independentNovember 4, 2014 3:35 am at 3:35 am #1114298
They do comment on every-single-article?
Well, I guess you are learning a lot about them.
Very few things are still free in this world. Post away before they start charging or you have to buy Red, Silver, or Gold posting memberships.November 4, 2014 12:35 pm at 12:35 pm #1114299
akuperma most definitely does NOT post on every single article.
For example, take a look at “Nissan, Honda, Chrysler Report US Sales Increases” He has absolutely nothing to say! We certainly would appreciate some insight on this topic.November 5, 2014 4:03 am at 4:03 am #1114300
So this thread and his response got me thinking. Does Akuperma belong to an organization such as Torah True Jews (an anti-Zionist organization) hence it’s all in a days work? I happen to find his posts well thought out and intellectually stimulating — just asking.November 5, 2014 6:45 am at 6:45 am #1114302
(This is actually not the first thread about Akuperma. Take the “-1” off the end of this page’s URL to see the first one.)
Here are several links in which you advocate for “Jewish autonomy” within an Arab state in the land of Israel:
How about this question: Wouldn’t it be suicidal, given the history we now have with the Arabs, to put ourselves under their rule (or murderous, for someone other than us to do the same)?
Mammale (and everyone else):
Does Akuperma belong to an organization such as Torah True Jews (an anti-Zionist organization) hence it’s all in a days work?
An interesting point. Look at Akuperma’s use of “we” above:
At the time, someone assumed it to mean that the Akuperma account was shared by a husband and wife. I like your theory better. It explains the dedication.December 2, 2015 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #1114303
