    We all hear how dangerous the internet is and how we all should avoid it as it causes people to stray, and some get divorced.

    Is the coffee room any better? It is a place where men and women shmooze and maybe the cause of lifnai evar.

    Should women be excluded from this forum as it lacks tznius?

    Maybe the women here should be typing in all caps cause lowercase letters might be too revealing.

    The Mods seem to be doing a good job keeping us on the straight and narrow path….if you’ve ever asked for directions in EY, you probably heard some variation of “yashar, yashar”….same here

    Wondering* why isn’t the question the other way around:
    Perhaps men should stay out.
    After all, men do have a coffee room in shul… 🙂

    Since you’re having difficulty with this issue. You should probably consult your LOR rather than the forum itself.

    Regardless of what you think, would you be happy to see your bais medrish bochor discussing halachos or hashkofos with anonymous women( or people posing as it) or your seminary girl discussing things that took place is seminary with an unknown boy?

    If there were a public stage in the town square where anyone could debate anyone, I would have no problem with that.

    clarification to my above post: I was answering the question literally and not necessarily in context. The reasons I wouldn’t want my seminary/Beis Medrash children doing the above are: 1. I wouldn’t want them online in the first place, and 2. I wouldn’t want them having online discussions with strangers.

    I think the gender of the strangers would bother me way less than the fact that they are online and that they are having discussions with strangers. In terms of the gender, it would depend on many factors.

    RY -there are differences between the two which is the reason you brought that as an example.

    btw, that’s generally the reason why people use this type of reasoning when trying to make a point, and it’s the reason why I generally think it’s not a good argument. If someone wants to prove that A) is okay, he will say, “B) is okay so A) must be okay” Obviously, he thinks there is a difference between A) and B), or he could have just said, “A) is okay because A) is okay.
