    Should YWN post comments, posts etc which were done on Shabbos?

    There are posters in various parts of the world, One can make a post where its not shabbos by them, but shabbos elsewhere

    I know quite a few posters live in Israel and Im sure there must be some on Australia. Both are significant time zones apart from New York

    I remember in the early days of the CR some of the posters posting left-wing garbage while claiming to be frum were found posting on Shabbos. One guy when busted claimed he was in Hong Kong, which was about the only place it wasn’t Shabbos at the time of his post. Unfortunately for him the mods pointed out he posted from a NJ IP Address.

    I thought that Mods don’t post any posts that were posted on Shabbos, according to the poster’s time zone.

    Actually, I take my last post back, because your question was theoretical. Thank you.

    There is a program that allows one to close the site in each zone according to when it is Shabbat there.

    his shailo is nogeia about shabbos / shovuos this week, there will be times when everywhere in the world it is either shabbos or yom tov. Is the YWN site up at these times and if so then why? and if so, are posts/comments accepted?

    gavriel613, we have to get a bit more lomdish here.
    if it’s shavuos, maybe the poster is in EY, where there’s no 2nd Day YT.
    BUT, if he’s in EY, you have to prove that he’s indeed a Ben Eretz Yisroel, and not a Ben Chutz Laaretz who’s staying in EY, and is obligated in 2 Days, but is still posting.
    so, if he’s posting on YT sheni, is there an issur of accepting his post? maybe we hold that electronic devices are d’rabonnon, and posting on YT2 is תרי דרבנן, which we can be meikel with

    What about posters who are not halachically Jewish and therefore do not need to keep Shabbos?

    focus on the substance of the message and let the Mods decide what/when gets posted. Do you know for certain that every sefer in the beis medrash or home library that you learn from was not c’v written by someone who might have written it on Shabbos?

    GHatorah,
    Any sefer that’s written but a mechalel shabbos, you can tell immediately by the connect that it’s not pure Torah, so hopefully none of them will ever wind up in the beis medrash

    In addition to the points made above, you can’t reliably determine the poster’s location from his IP address. He could be using a proxy that’s in a different location, even a different continent.
