To the astonishment of the owners of the veteran chareidi Hebrew news website Ladaat.net, when visitors to the site clicked on the URL late Wednesday night it directed them to another site, Shtieble.net. It appears that due to an oversight, the owners of the Ladaat site neglected to renew the domain address, and it was promptly snatched up by the competitor’s site, which also portrays itself as a chareidi news site, albeit a newcomer to the industry.
YWN-ISRAEL contacted the owners of Ladaat, frum brothers who built the site and have worked tirelessly for the past decade to maintain it, bringing quality news to the Hebrew-speaking public. They recently invested a significant sum of money to revamp the page as well. The owners of Ladaat are taking appropriate legal action against Shtieble.net, as well as posting a banner article on the site speaking of the “despicable actions” of the competitor, not holding back in its criticism of another frum site that would engage in such an undermining act.
For those wishing to view Ladaat, the URL is now Ladaat.info.
