    I find it troubling that poster here inadvertently or otherwise will present a psak on any number of issues. With all due respect to YWN, this is not the place to do so unless it is unaccompanied with a link to a reliable source. This is not an attack on free speech, but without knowing who is reading this, there may be those who will accept what is written though the psak may have been given in a specific situation or the poster misinterpreted the halachah. So May I suggest that YWN edit those posts without supporting links and those that declare others sinners based on their understanding of an issue.

    Please…

    What fun is the CR if declaring others sinners is verboten?

    I’m more interested in having the Mods divulge when they’re finally going to publish SHU”T of the CR?

    With haskamos of all our favorite posters…

    What level of pesak do you consider paskening?

    Ifo somebody wants to know the beracha on apples should I avoid paskening?

    applesauce?

    eaten during meal? after meal?

    At what level is it to complicated for the coffee room

    Of course, answering my question(s) would be paskening too. so tread lightly

    I still recall with great trepidation the time I was called upon by a fellow coffee room poster to pasken whether to put someone on a respirator.

    Flatbusher – Out of interest – What disturbed you one hour ago that didn’t disturb you for the past 9 years?

    Joseph raises another point.

    I dont know the specifics of the question he is reffering to. But am certain as learned as any poster here thinks Joseph may be nobody was actually asking a halachic question regardign putting somebody on a respirator.

    We all have an inate “halachic sense” most of us know what questions can be answered by aybody what requires a more learned person and what requires a Gadol. The idea that every question (eg Bracha on apples) needs to be addressed to a Gadol or even Rav is foolsihness.

    It is clear in most threads when more invvolved questions are asked rarely (if ever) is the pesron actually asking and looking for guidance, rather it is usually to stimulate conversation (or argument).

    yekke: first of all I haven’t been here for 9 years, and second, it has been an issue that has been bothering for some time and just decided to start the post. What prompted it was a poster who declared that people who watch moves are sinners and the poster brought no corroborating link to support his claim. I don’t know that to be true.

    Sources have been brought. You choose to ignore them.

    No, I looked at one of the sources where it the Magen Avraham say it is assur to go theaters, etc. But when you declare someone a sinner are you equating a person who watches videos to someone who is mechalel Shabbos, eats treif or murders someone? Maybe it’s wrong that people do not refrain from things that some poskim have declared assur. By the same token, some poskim would say you are a sinner for being on the Internet, so why start labeling fellow yidden sinners if you are no better than they are?

    You are now admitting that movies are assur, but you somehow want a pass because other people do other issurim? How does that work – can I be mechallel Shabbos because some people are rotzchim?

    Again with the false internet analogy? Are you going to claim that it too was never answered? It’s just a desperate attempt to discredit someone you are debating, but has no validity in the discussion.

    BTW, I wasn’t referring to the Mogen Avraham, I was referring to sources (which have been quoted numerous times here, including in discussions you were involved in) which were based on content in media.

    Interesting that it bother you so that people will accept a ??? that is ?????? “without proof”. What’s the worst that can happen – a guy won’t watch a movie even though it may be muttar?

    Your original post claimed you are worried that posters misinterpret the halachah. Now [here] you have a problem that there may be poskim who are mattir, and therefore it isn’t fair to only bring down the machmirim?
