    Mine didn’t used to before we got married. But then she asked what I was doing online, and then wanted to know my username.

    Well, that wouldn’t do. So I made a new username, and posted all the stuff that I didn’t mind her seeing under the new username, and kept my old one to post the real stuff.

    And that is how this username came to be. I chose Popa bar Abba because that was what daf yomi was up to that day.

    And now that it’s been 5 years, I don’t suppose she’ll figure that this is really me. tee hee. So I can finally confess that this is my second name, and that this is only my boring stuff.

    Ah. It’s hard to believe that you’ve been posting with two usernames throughout the McCarthy period.

    I hide from my wife my YWN activities. I only login to YWN in Chrome’s Incognito mode.

    Me too!!!!! I always go incognito, before I had a tablet…but now, I have to make sure no one is in the house to go on the CR….

    That explains why you guyz miss me so much…

    yes. she posts here too occasionally.

    Popa, this doesn’t make sense. If she sees what you post, and knows the PBA username but not the other one, you would have posted this under the other one.

    No, because it’s so long ago that she won’t figure it out.

    Oh.

    More importantly, can we try to guess what the other username is?

    I’m gonna guess squeak.

    Mods, I found this in the Rules thread:

    One user name per person. Period!

    I demand that PBA be banned from the CR forever!

    maybe i am foolish but i still dont chopp. if your wife knows that you are PBA, why aren’t you concerned that she will see this and know what you did? does she still visit the coffee room?

    I just checked and the day you signed up was actually 20 days after daf yomi was up to the bench story.

    And i’m usually about 20 days behind. Makes perfect sense.

    Or else I had done it a couple weeks previously. It’s 5 years ago, you can’t expect me to remember perfectly

    PBA says that not everything he says is true, so his own word can’t be taken as evidence that he has two usernames and so he can’t be banned.

    #1198000

    squeak – popa has been known to be get thrown off the daf yomi schedule for short periods of time. See this thread: >>I hate you all, you big fat jerks<<

    what were you trying to hide from her when you posted under your other name? were you afraid of what she would think of you?

    lol of course not.

    I was afraid of being thrown out of the house on my ear.

    The time has come to announce that Torah613Torah is really Popa Bar Abba. That’s why it’s rare to find a thread with only one of them.

    I realized this a while ago but kept it to myself. Now all of you know it as well.

    Look back and you’ll see they have a similar writing style. I defy anyone to prove me wrong.

    Registration date does not mean the time that person came to the cr. I was here a long time before registering, but I was only the inspiration fort another user. I’m not telling you who.

    Frimet is actually my autistic 9 year old neighbor. She’s very sweet. Please don’t make fun of her.

    (She got it from the shidduch crisis vaccine)

    Someone just referenced this thread so i gave it a look. My question still remains unanswered. PBA- if your wife knows that your username is PBA, why didn’t it concern you that she would see this thread and then realize what you had done? Who cares if it was 5 years ago? She will know what you did because she will see that her husband, PBA, tricked her when she was first married, regardless of whether she remembers the original conversation about what your username was.

    2yr old thread

    Is wifey still in the dark? Why be sneaky?

    I like the PBA’s line about getting autism from the Shidduch Crisis Vaccines.

    btw, LB, PBA is one of the posters who is joking more often than not.

    Pretty sure that PBA is being serious here about wifey though

    I’m pretty sure he’s not. He seems too nice for that.

    #1198022

    He can be nice on the CR and still keep things hidden from his wife

    Maybe this is a refuge where he can be happy and free and having wifey know about it would burst the CR bubble?

    I don’t know. To me this thread sounded legit

    I think “hevei dan es kol ha’adam l’kaf zchus” would apply here, especially since he has a “chazaka” as a joker.

    Also, he seems to care about his kids a lot based on the thread about harnesses (that’s what I was thinking of when I said he seems nice).

    My “Why be sneaky?” was unfavorable sounding. poor diction.

    Can I not believe him and yet still judge him favorably?

    I don’t think he’s doing it to hurt his wife intentionally. I do think that he confessed here and wanted to know if others are open about CR with their wives.

    I know nice guys with secrets. It’s fact. Not judgment.

    Hopefully PBA will respond to this thread.

    Which doesn’t prove if it’s a joke or not. However, there is a very simple proof that it’s a joke – the fact that it makes no sense.

    #1198027

    Lilmod Ulelamaid

    LB – If something is a bad thing to do, then one is not supposed to believe that someone else is doing it (at least not in a case in which there is at least as much reason to believe that he is not), and it is not good enough to say that he is not doing it to hurt his wife intentionally, etc. If it’s possible to say he is not doing it all, you are supposed to.

    Honestly, in this case, if you read the thread, it seems pretty clear that he is not. If he really were to do something behind his wife’s back, he would not publicize it! And certainly not like this! He is using the very user-name he supposedly gave his wife – that makes no sense!

    Ask Little Froggie what he thinks.

    I think that was short for “respond to the recent posts on this thread debating if he is serious or not” but that was too many words for a post in the CR.

    Personally, I was going to suggest that she ask you if you’re serious or not but then realized that there probably was no point.

    He could have been drunk when he started it. It wouldn’t be the only time.

    In that case, the whole idea of keeping secrets from his wife would be kind of meaningless.
