    I don’t get it. Are you trying to see who wants to read loshan horah or did you want to discuss the evils of loshan horah?

    Popa, I looked. But that’s because I knew it would be some thing of the sort 🙂

    I thought it was a thread about lashon hara… not necessarily a thread containing LH.

    Aw, I thought you were going to post a deleted post 😉

    We are testing to see who will open this thread despite its title.

    Four so far.

    I figured i wouldn’t know the guy since i’m not from where you are and probably never even heard of the guy.

    You know there’s an issur of lifnei eeveir so whenever someone would check it you might be getting a lav, right?

    Yes, but the title wasn’t clear enough to prove that one was looking to sin when opening.

    I KNEW it aint loshon horah. When someone write loshon horah, they don’t spell it out so clearly…they usually deny it.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I don’t find this amusing. I have a problem with all the loshan horah, judging, motzi shem rah that has been going on in all these blogs, and I though this was going to be a discussion about “dan l’kaf zchus” and how to stop spreading loshan horah.

    Excuses, excuses…

    Very well. Yes, I sinned when I opened this thread. And I’m sinning again by lying about it now. So I’m twice a sinner. And I’m sure that boasting about your sin is also a sin, making me a thrice-sinner. And I’m sure there’s a special place in hell reserved for people who use “high-falutin” words like “thrice.” Furthermore, I’m also fairly certain that it’s sinner for a person to suggest that you know who’s going to hell or not, since they clearly aren’t God who is the ultimate arbiter of final destinations… let’s see that makes at least six sins.

    So, are you going to condemn me to six sins, or accept my original statement?

    Excuses? No, we plainly were looking for some juicy deleted posts. The least you could have done was oblige us.

    1) I believed this to be a thread about the evils of L”H, the risk part being that we would be getting mussar about our own inability to refrain from L”H.

    2) Are you not guilty of lifnei iveir lo tetain michshol, if your intention was to entice us into opening something that you thought we would take to be L”H?? NOT NICE!

    well it certainly piqued my interst…but honestly, can anyone have thought that it would realy contain L”H?? no one who’s about to say lashon hara would announce it, unless we’re talking about that character in “We want life” i forgot his name….

    oh shucks…my hopes dashed. where can you go for a good piece of lashon hara these days?

    #1005391

    I figured that our trusted moderaters wouldnt post a thread that was LH

    But out of curiosity, just what are you trying to accomplish? To see how bad we are in the area of LH?

    And then what? Will you give us mussar shmuessin?

    Popa Bar Abba says;

    ‘too bad there’s no view counter.’

    Is that how you fill up your time? Trying to prove how bad people can be??

    Why did you not post something like ‘A Wonderful idea for a Mitzvah’

    or ‘Some tips on how to do Teshuvah’.

    Or if you dont want to be a ‘holier than thou’ dont test us at all!

    Can someone pls explain what these two members of G-*d’s PolicE force wanted to accomplish??

    I’m not trying to accomplish anything. Just amusing myself. That’s why it’s posted in the “Humor and entertainment” forum.

    #1005394

    Well its not funny. Not in Elul when we are supposed to be trying to show the Bais Din Shel Maaleh how good Klal Yisroel is. Instead you are helping the prosecuter by tallying up the numbers of people who willingly want to hear LH.

    what are you talking about: whtryutlkingabt? Like I said, nobody has admitted they thought they were going to be reading lashon hara.

    2 more points.

    A. I obviously thought nobody would click on it and it would be a zchus for us.

    B. My rebbi taught us that yom kippur is yom ki”purim” and that you should make leitzonus in elul. (He also taught us to wipe out zochor Amalek.) I think I’ll stab him with a spear.

    #1005397

    You obviously thought that people would click on it, since your first post is “too bad there is no view counter”

    You were waiting very eagerly to see how many people would be nichshal.

    And besides, a couple of people did admit that they thought there would be LH. And what about all the people that clicked on it and didnt post or want to admit their shortcomings.

    Stop excusing yourself and do teshuva. You can start by apologizing.

    His last post;

    Gotta be careful before you push that ‘send’ button , lol!

    Why does he have to apologize? I think we should all take it more as mussar-not to be so quick to be willing to hear Loshon Hara! That was his point! That many times we are way too quick to hear and read Loshon Hara – when it is not spelled out that way! Why are we attacking him? For making a point that we can take mussar from?

    And to anyone who is saying that the problem is that it is giving the Satan ‘evidence’-look around the coffee room, newspapers, community…. – how much of this gives the Satan what to say? Also, if we do something with it, it should do some good and not only bad!

    Thank you popa_bar_abba for making this thread!

    After falling for Mod-80’s joke about Wolf “talking during laining, I HAD to open this thread.

    (and Torahls1 – I have no idea why your comment got squashed, but I’ll answer it on the “potch” thread later today. And don’t feel bad.. I’ve had comments squashed too.)

    from “al tarbeh sicha im ha’isha”

    you should only speak for a purpose eg. “what’s for supper?” “can you quiet the kids?”

    HaLeiVi: Only if it’s for a purpose. I would recommend studying the Halachos before doing that especially on Yom Kippur…
