Which poster (past or present) has left a mark, an influence on you?
This isn't going to be too easy since most people are going to nominate there other Usernames.

For good - PBA.
For bad - A few, but I'm not going to go there.
My other username is very influential. He once convinced me to post some crazy troll thread.
Moski, are you going to fess up? What, for instance, is your's?
Not me, that's for sure!! ☺
(PUI- Posts under the influence)
Pbs are you saying you are half troll?
Who else has any influence around here?
There are many people here who are very learned. Some are more influential to me than others for a variety or reasons.
But to drop names at the expense of others, who I may not understand yet, or whose names I forgot to mention, creating some sort of disappointment or something like that in them, is a more important concern to me than hurling names I like up against the wall.
I have to say these kinds of lists are beneath us and smack of shallowness and cronyism. I am sorry....
BT, I hear you. So..
Zeeskite I don't know whether to be proud that you included me in your short list or contacting my lawyer cause you accused me in public of leaving a mark on you...
There are so many great posters that I enjoy. Among them are
The Chassidishe Gatesheader
YW Moderator 42
Y. W. Editor
A Sheep Without A Spleen
Avram in MD
Plus many many more
BT: my thoughts as well.

Thanks Shticky! I feel like one of a kind
A lot of the posters have influenced me- as their answers were clear concise and well thought out- the cr enlightened me to the fact that there can be more than one opinion and answer - and you don't have to admit its right- but you do have to be open to all kinds and accept that they believe their answer is the correct one- you all have taught me to be open minded! Thank you
I might be the most influential because I may have just gotten rid of Loyal Jew! From Google and an earlier brawl with him on another site, he gave away enough personal details that I contacted him and gave him a brief lesson on Israel's new libel law....
How could you possibly know whoever you got into a brawl with elsewhere, is the same guy here? That screen name is as generic as it gets. And he posted here today.
Choppy -- his posts here coincided topic-for-topic and almost word-for-word with some nasty exchanges on ynet and other places. In those exchanges, it was all the same stuff but worse, including going after people by name. When my name came up, I asked an acquaintance at ynet to follow up on some details and the rest fell into place. In the manner of cowards and bullies, he hasn't been heard from since on those sites. Over here, I did the erekh apayim thing when he called my views "reform," but when he assailed (by name!) the reservists in Lebanon who invested their spare moments in the Daf Yomi, I drew the line and reminded him that it's a small world and that Israel's libel laws apply just as they did on ynet. Enough said.
How do you explain his post here within the past 24 hours? What did he respond to your email? And YW is a US website, so only US laws apply to content posted here, not Israeli laws. And how could you ever prove he is who you think he is, even if you or someone wanted to risk spending thousands of dollars for lawyers to pursue someone in court, who might not even have money to pay a judgement, should it even go so far that one was ever issued.
You musta heard wrong. I dont sew...I dont knit either...crochet? fagedaboudit! lol
BT: It's just that I thought you didn't like this thread, so I [closed] it.
Choppy -- he and I both live in Israel (at least I call it Israel) and I emailed my reminder this morning Israel time, about 11 hours ago. He hasn't posted since then. The brawl I spoke about took place on Israeli sites, so it could have come under Israeli law. Is it the same person? Well, the Loyal Jew in the earlier posts ranted against all the things that outrage YWN's Loyal Jew, basically word-for-word: in-laws who don't provide lifetime kollel support, criticism of "frum" spitters and vandals, the nonreligious (the "erev rav"), the Zionists for causing the Holocaust, sports, and so on. There won't be a lawsuit over this. First, I was much more vehement last time than now because then he had turned his attention to me personally, and he didn't deny the "charges" but simply stopped posting. That was enough for me (לא תיקום). Second, I didn't and won't use his name in any public communication, so he's got nothing on me except that I like ping-pong.
I was about to compliment you about how you remember every poster that ever posted here. Then I realized you didn't.
Case in point. I told you these threads are a bad idea. Even if some people are joking, there is no question that some people feel bad about being left out. I know I am usually not mentioned and it stings a bit.
Really? What have I done to deserve this? TY
charlie brown I did not feel it necessary to mention the father of the house. You're once of the all time greats here, you with charlie hall with whom I used to mix you up, though lately you are a bit of a back bencher <sobbing>
Oomis, I actually wanted nominate you too. As I once before noted, you seem to have a vast knowledge in many (if not all) fields. Your posts are generally 'tzum zach', to the point. Coming from a silly personality as myself doesn't account to much, but I'm sure most (mature) posters will agree.
Zk, you are well-named. TY (and who says you are a silly personality, I'll deal with THEM later!) :)
great big shout out for syag!!!! (I really do enjoy your posts when I get around to visiting this place, which is rare these days).
Shticky, I was TOTALLY kidding but thanks for the kind words. You've got ego boosting talent so I hereby proclaim you to be the new official ego booster of the CR, now that I'm never around anymore.
" I hereby proclaim you to be the
new official ego booster of the CR, now that I'm never around
wow that's an ego boosting statement if there ever was one
Uh oh syag, I might need you to cure my doublepostitis.
<--- a.k.a.~ chopped liver
Here 42, take two of these and you'll be on the road to recovery.
Syag: I just read your earlier post. I'm sorry you were slighted. I'm sorry about this whole thing. I even tried [closing] to no avail. Please be mochel.
charlie brown - thanks so much! Even solicited compliments are nice to get ;)
Shticky guy & Golf
syag, anytime you need a compliment please type what the compliment should be and I'll gladly copy and paste it into a new post. :)
CB, please post on more threads. We need you.
charlie brown - That's hysterical, wish I'd thought of it.
charlie brown *rimshot!*
ROTCRFL!! (rolling on the coffee room floor laughing)
PLEASE STAY AROUND!!
moskidoodle, syag and shticky:
Woa!!! Speaking of ego boosters!!! Thanks!!!
