You’ve mentioned certain things about yourself over the time you’re here, and I may have figured you out. I’m not naming names (I’m not sure if its you, and also there was a thread a while back about outting people and one post had strong reasoning to keep quiet) but just wanted to say that it seems (to me) you want to keep the CR anonymous so you may want to think twice before revealing personal info (or figure-outtable info) even though no one knows you.
If you’re the person I’m thinking of, (and again, I’m not sure,) I (possibly) met you once and I don’t think you would know me.August 10, 2011 9:48 am at 9:48 am #797988YW Moderator-42Moderator

I can’t take much more of this, Kapusta 🙁
Just out me already! (Just kidding, please don’t)August 10, 2011 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #797996
is it me?!?!?!? Please please tell me.August 11, 2011 3:04 am at 3:04 am #797997
How long was this one meeting and how extreme was the other person’s (ok, MY) behavior that you picked up and remembered enough details to be able to figure them (me) out?August 11, 2011 5:03 am at 5:03 am #797998always runs with scissors fastParticipant
the only thing kapusta could do now to freak ppl out even more would be to throw out names at members, like hey you hinda ploni.August 11, 2011 6:27 am at 6:27 am #797999wanderingchanaParticipant
If someone knows me well enough, they could figure me out from my posts. But it would take a lot of effort to string a lot of posts together. Dunno if it’s worth it!
OTOH, I don’t think I’ve posted anything to be horribly ashamed of, although my preference is for not being outed…August 11, 2011 8:04 am at 8:04 am #798000
You most probably wouldn’t remember me (your head was on other things then- a good thing) and your behavior was fine, it was mine that was umm… I’m not sure if its you, but it could be.
I wasn’t trying to out anyone here, just tell you that from certain posts you gave enough details about yourself to possibly give yourself away and my impression is that you would like to stay anonymous so just be aware when posting.
I can’t take much more of this, Kapusta 🙁
Just out me already! (Just kidding, please don’t)
I’ll send a man to Shomer Shabbos. Get back to me in a month. 😉August 11, 2011 1:36 pm at 1:36 pm #798001
Since you replied mostly to my post, should I infer that you were directing this thread to me? Thank you for the warning. If I have given out such information, then it doesn’t bother me if people want to sit down and try to figure out if this is me. It is, though, more comfortable to sit down and post under a screenname, and if someone were to put my actual name here I would probably stop posting.August 11, 2011 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #798002
it’s not meAugust 11, 2011 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #798003minyan galMember
Most of you have never been to the middle of Canada, so I doubt that I have to worry about anyone knowing who I am. I am not ashamed of anything, nor do I regret anything that I have posted, so if I were ever outed, it wouldn’t bother me. In fact, my dream would be for us to get together – there are so many of you that I would love to meet.August 11, 2011 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #798004
guys its me! kap- you didnt respond to my post so….. ok where was I that we met?August 11, 2011 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #798005
she responded to bptAugust 11, 2011 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #798006
she never said that she knows him… i think she would know me faster than she would know him….August 11, 2011 6:31 pm at 6:31 pm #798007haifagirlParticipant
A couple people figured out who I am. I was really surprised by people who didn’t.August 11, 2011 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #798008ObaminatorMember
haifagirl: Were those that recognized you lurkers or regular posters here?August 11, 2011 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #798009haifagirlParticipant
Regular posters, I think.August 11, 2011 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #798010
I think she would know me maybe because we are possibly the same age….August 11, 2011 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #798011August 11, 2011 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #798012
so its me. you keep ignoring my posts. and you are not answering me!August 11, 2011 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm #798013
I said I didn’t want to name names…
Not specifically ignoring you, sorry.
I’m not sure that its you. I’ll tell you what I’m thinking but could we keep this thing quiet (if it is you)?August 11, 2011 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #798014
ok tell me some hints and i will keep it all under wraps if we really do know each other. i would not want it to be announced that im here either.August 11, 2011 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #798015
kap- can you email me?August 11, 2011 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #798016August 12, 2011 10:32 am at 10:32 am #798017
In fact, my dream would be for us to get together – there are so many of you that I would love to meet.
Me too.August 12, 2011 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm #798018
I dont know what you are talking about but do you have anyone that you can get my email address from?August 12, 2011 6:18 pm at 6:18 pm #798019
And I was so sure I knew you, too! 🙂
If you really think you know who the person is, and know the name, why don’t you look them up in the phone book and call or write, or contact someone from that wedding for contact info?August 12, 2011 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #798020smileyface136Member
I know a couple of people have figured out who I am here. My own fault, I used a name that people who really know me would recognize. But… we are all related anyway being that we are all yidden. Kapusta, have we met other than at Sinai?August 12, 2011 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #798021mw13Participant
“I am not ashamed of anything, nor do I regret anything that I have posted, so if I were ever outed, it wouldn’t bother me.”
My thoughts exactly. Actually, there are several people (both members and lurkers) who know who I am.August 14, 2011 3:25 am at 3:25 am #798022always runs with scissors fastParticipant
I thought a bit over shabbos on this thread. And I think it is entirely naive and silly of ANYONE in the CR to think that they can actually put a name to a screen user name of a CR member.
Its impossible. I think its just like wishful thinking , you know?
Its like you think you can be one up on another person so you start imaginging oh yeah, its my neighbor or that lady from shul.
Absolutely impossible. How many yidden live in NY? How many are leading in general similar lifestyles? In short how is someone going to figure out somebody when the answer to those 2 questions is A LOT!August 14, 2011 8:45 am at 8:45 am #798023
Can’t get your email without some serious questions. I’ll try it this way- it was your aunts wedding (and I know another aunt).
arwsf, firstly, I’m honestly sorry I “bothered” your Shabbos. Second, I mentioned several times that I’m not sure it is her, but it could be. My point in starting this thread was not to “get” anyone, but to say that if I thought this way then anyone can and thats not a good thing for keeping anonymous.
As for your other point, I hear, but I think a lot depends on how well you know the person. (Or certain things about them.)August 15, 2011 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm #798024
kapusta- sorry but i dont know what you are talking about. dont have any aunts weddings that you can be talking about…. the last one got married many many years ago when i was a baby.August 16, 2011 7:23 am at 7:23 am #798025August 16, 2011 4:00 pm at 4:00 pm #798026
sorry that I burst your bubble! LOL
