This is an official forum to petition the return of our two greatest posters: Squeak Coffeeroomman and Ames Coffeeroomstein
All those that have something worthwhile to say on the matter- please do not hesitate to do so. Whereas all those that do not have something POSITIVE to add to this already disastrous situation, please keep it to yourselves.
Thank you! I look forward to hearing from their supportersFebruary 4, 2009 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm #636386coke not pepsiMember
mods why dont u add in the name of the thread brooklyn19 alsoFebruary 4, 2009 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm #636387moish01Member
yeah guys, we really need you around here.
ames, we know you’re reading. and squeak, i’m going to assume you’re not that cold and that you’re probably sticking around without dropping a post.
first of all, i want to apologize if i had anything to do with this. i apologize to both of you and to the entire coffeeroom.
ames, you don’t know what kind of shock i was in when i read your message last night. basically, i read it twice, then shut my computer and went to sleep. it’s not gonna be any fun without you. and that’s only the beginning of it. never mind the fun, you’ve really given me chizuk. i know i’m an idiot and i argue my head off, but i really do take what you say to heart. you speak like you care (and i have reason to believe that you do!) so please, don’t go. dunno how i have the chutzpa to say this: but for my sake, stay. i’m not asking for mussar (though you can go ahead and shoot me), i’m just asking ot see a post here and there. please?
squeak, i have no words. i know you’re unassuming, but i’ve come to really respect what you say. and that’s a lot, coming from me. don’t go. i honestly look for your approval on every issue that’s posted on here. i know you’re not going to believe me, but it’s true.
i’m tempted to backspace this whole thing because it’s waaaaay too mushy for a guy like me, but i’m going to overcome my temptation… (you see areivim? i do have hope!)
just don’t laugh and don’t use this as blackmail. i’m hoping to see you both around here.February 4, 2009 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #636388SJSinNYCMember
Please come back!
I have enjoyed debating with you both (most of the time). Not all of us can be as perfect as me 🙂 but you guys do a very decent job of trying.February 4, 2009 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #636389Itzik_sMember
And what of Syriansephardi? All are sorely missed.February 4, 2009 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #636390
squeak, ames(and others who left): i already miss you, please come back sooooon.$February 5, 2009 12:05 am at 12:05 am #636391musicloverMember
i seem to have missed something here. can s/o please fill me in?February 5, 2009 12:21 am at 12:21 am #636392oomisParticipant
I have already posted what I had to say on the other thread. Please stay. Don’t make me beg. It’s not a pretty sight…February 5, 2009 12:42 am at 12:42 am #636393February 5, 2009 1:07 am at 1:07 am #636394JosephParticipant
Mi K’amch Yisroel!? Mi K’amch Yisroel!?
Rabbosai, the two “protagonists” here had a chashad that maybe they unintentionally offended one another. Nothing geferlach was in reality said. Nothing close in fact (certainly not for the coffee room!) But since each thought that perhaps they may have slightly upset the other, they each independently forswore any further comments out of fear lest they mistakenly say something in good faith that is taken in an unintended manner.
Rabbosai, mir zenen Yidden! Where else would you find such Ahava?? Nowhere! Mit ah goy mir kenen nisht cholem’en oif aza zach! Mi K’amch Yisroel!?

It would be a shame to give up a single friendship, let alone several – even online friendships – over a misunderstanding and exchange of less-than-kind words.
This is especially true where the offender(s) have apologized.
It would be far better to return, and, where applicable, remind others of the reality that oino’as devorim is a real issue, even in the virtual reality of the CR.February 5, 2009 1:31 am at 1:31 am #636396
I can’t believe this has happened. Ames, I need you!! You’re my partner in the cooking thread. C’mon, there can’t be any controversy in the cooking threads!! Except you say Potato, and I say Patato, Tomayto, Tomato…. Ames, I went through all the threads to see what went wrong. Honey, I feel for you. The whole yiddish thing drives me crazy as well. You know, on a few of my threads, I wrote about how I cope with things, like phyching myself up to get ready for Shabbos, by thinking, that by not being able to afford help, at least I would be getting the reward instead of a housekeeper. Do you know what replys I received??? Oh, someone said, why am i knocking people who have help!! You know I wasn’t knocking on people who need help to prepare for Shabbos. I replied that this is how I handle and prepare myself to get ready for Shabbos. I wish people would take the time to read my replies. Ames, please don’t let some of the CR posters get to you. Your sparkling Neshoma showned through. I love to read your posts. You are a very level headed person and a voice of reason in this Crazy place. We need you very much in the CR.
Squeak, I am not going to leave you out either. Both of you have made the CR so much fun. I can’t always reply to every thread (can’t think of anything smart to say, so I ‘d rather be quiet then sound stupid) and how some of you guys out there manage to do it, especially, you night owls, is beyond me. Please come back.
I hope the moderators can forward this to Ames and Squeak.February 5, 2009 1:33 am at 1:33 am #636397
musiclover- if you want to know what happened go to the “Is yiddish holy” thread. Then you will understand what happened.February 5, 2009 1:39 am at 1:39 am #636398asdfghjklParticipant
ames: you read what moish had to say right??? just cause of that you should stay!!! i’m surely ganna miss ya!! the cr gang won’t be the same without ya!!! i hope you read my letter to you in the yiddish thread!!! farewell my friend!!!!
squeak: what could i say…..your wit, humor & personality will truley be missed around here!!! sorry for calling ya squeak the rubber ducky!!!
i hope in the very very near future you both re-join the cr gang!!!!February 5, 2009 1:44 am at 1:44 am #636400
ames & squeak: joseph alrady said that he wants you guys back, so now youcan, you could do what charlie brown did, when he left and came back about a week later and let everybody know why he left, and now he’s back in business.$February 5, 2009 2:02 am at 2:02 am #636401
ames and squeak (listed in alphabetical order) your comments will be sorely missed but one comment (maybe more directed at ames after the big goodbye) not like I want you to leave or anything but maybe (maybe) it will bring out a point about the bickering here -if so that’ll be one positiveFebruary 5, 2009 2:04 am at 2:04 am #636402
i hope very soon, we’ll be able to change the name of this thread to “WELCOME BACK SQUEAK & AMES”February 5, 2009 2:09 am at 2:09 am #636403musicloverMember
mazel and qwertyuiop-thanks for the info. i did read it i cant believe they left.even though im usually on the sidelines just watching whats going on its really sad. they really did make the cr come alive. ames, squeak if ur reading this for everyones sake please come back.February 5, 2009 2:12 am at 2:12 am #636404SJSinNYCMember
Mazal, I was one and I am sorry. When you posted, I thought you were saying you look down on others for having help, rather than that it was personal for you. I’msorry for misunderstanding and judging you harshly. I hope you can forgive me.February 5, 2009 2:59 am at 2:59 am #636405
ames: sorry about your bathroom, and it’s nice to see you back here, squeak please come back, we all miss you.$February 5, 2009 3:07 am at 3:07 am #636406oomisParticipant
ames – wonderful.
Squeak – listen to ames.February 5, 2009 3:12 am at 3:12 am #636407
ames you have made a very squeaky comeback… glad to have you… squeak your turn (you can get to make a very ames comeback, sorry I have no clue what that means but it sounds good)February 5, 2009 3:31 am at 3:31 am #636408asdfghjklParticipant
ames: glad to see you posting!!! your baby is yummy!!! glad you forgive us!!! please stick around!!!February 5, 2009 4:04 am at 4:04 am #636409I can only tryMember
1) Allow me to join the others in saying “glad you (pretty much) reconsidered & we hope ‘squeak’ does, too”.
2) B”H the only thing that happened in your bathroom was the mess. An unsecured toilet can c’v be a terrible hazard to a baby or toddler – even a mop bucket can. Babies don’t have great balance, plus having a disproportionately (on an adult scale) large and heavy head can lead to a toddler being unable to extricate him or her self (once again, c’v) if they fall into a bucket, toilet, etc.February 5, 2009 4:37 am at 4:37 am #636410amichaiParticipant
after reading all the very touching words and thoughts of the cr gang, i think it will be hard for ames, and squeak to leave. you are wanted very much!February 5, 2009 5:24 am at 5:24 am #636411
squeak we’re waiting party would be much better with youFebruary 5, 2009 5:30 am at 5:30 am #636412BemusedParticipant
If it was my words that caused you pain, I beg for your Mechilah. It was not my intention to cause heartache.February 5, 2009 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #636413
sjs, all forgiven.
Ames, you’ve made me soo very happy. Anyway, I’ve got work to do. It’s Thursday. Shabbat Shalom to all.February 5, 2009 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #636414squeakParticipant
The goodbye that I wrote yesterday was intended completely as a joke. I have been posting as much as ever, but none of my posts went through. It might be because I decided that henceforth I will only post in Yiddish.
P.S. A mule is stubborn. You can coax a mule, you can beg a mule, you can yell at a mule. But that will only strengthen his resolve. Yet, when he is hungry and you are not looking, he will not hold back from coming to you to eat.
