@moderators I’m sure you won’t let this through but please just let me speak. I’m fed up with my comments and posts being ignored by you moderators, I take time to write them and we want to be able to say what we want and have a normal conversation. Poshut if it’s something unacceptable then don’t let it through but or chotch edit it, but for goodness sake stop blocking them it drives me mad. Such control freaks.
When you attack posters personally you are deleted. Period. If you don’t like being deleted, learn how to talk to people. If you were being ignored, your posts would have gone through. Grow up and treat people like a mentch. It’s all in your control sir.June 13, 2022 8:36 pm at 8:36 pm #2096318GefilteFishParticipant
Frankly I’m glad this forum has active moderators.
There’s enough vitriol online elsewhere; we don’t need it here as well.
And the Moderators allow plenty of comments which are questionable in order to facilitate dialogue.
So when I see the word “edited” on a post I know that there was something actually inappropriate being blocked.
Thank you @moderators
You made my dayJune 13, 2022 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #2096319

Clearly, you should be posting on the new Trump social media site called “Emes” (aka Truth Social) which was created with the promise of no censorship and free expression. Unless, of course, you happen to post anything which expresses doubts that the 2020 election was “stolen” from him or that he cheats in golf. Alternatively, make believe you are the next Elon Musk and simply purchase YWN for $46 billion and fire all the Mods and allow everyone to “say what they want”.June 13, 2022 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #2096352
I disagree. 😃June 14, 2022 12:04 am at 12:04 am #2096357
That explains a lot!

GH – that was very funny actually. You chose as a satarical situation something that your peers actually do. I got a kick out of that. (now I owe you, I guess)June 14, 2022 7:52 am at 7:52 am #2096458
@moderator if you don’t allow my comments which you deem to be ‘attacking posters personally’ then why have you let @☕️coffee addict to post that one there “A person’s brain isn’t fully developed until he’s 25, cut him some slack”?? That seems like quite a direct attack on me. You need to be consistent, not just when it suits your argument.
@Gadolhadorah I would love to use Trump’s Truth platform, I love free speech but unfortunately I don’t use social media so… I’m not sure which ‘godol hador’ you are if you’re encouraging the use of social media?June 14, 2022 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #2096634
I’m sorry if I attacked you it was meant as a jokeJune 14, 2022 4:16 pm at 4:16 pm #2096697
I always thought of the coffeeroom as social media.June 14, 2022 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #2096716
@Bigbucher. I had some of my comments flaged by the mod, try acting like a mature adult instead of a teen troll and it would get you much moreJune 14, 2022 7:08 pm at 7:08 pm #2096775
There’s a gezeira not take mussar from someone whos been sitting on the ywn coffee room for 12 years. Sorry. However, I think it’s brought down that if the person says roiv intelligent comments then there’s room to be meikel but as far as I know the most intelligent thing you’ve said is ‘you are a troll’.June 14, 2022 7:10 pm at 7:10 pm #2096781Shlomo 2Participant
Sounds to me that the issue here might be different experiences as to what’s considered “normal conversation.”
Which yeshiva are you part of, where your experience of “normal conversation” is the type of thing that moderators here consider unacceptable?June 14, 2022 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #2096809
Judging by your ‘normal conversation’standards, lechoira you should be on my side to encourage freedom of speech here and the loosening of moderator’s control because all I can see is you frantically labelling other people as am haratzim and baalei loshon hora. And btw I would be very interested to hear which yeshiva was lucky enough to have you (based on your seemingly odd thoughts; namely, Hashem ein lo guf and your suspiciously passionate connection to Sefaria and your mehalech on men hearing women sing…) So where did you learn?June 14, 2022 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #2096814MarxistParticipant
Judging based on your last two comments, I can understand why the Moderators might be blocking some of your posts.June 14, 2022 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #2096813
At the same time @Shlomo 2 you said that the writers of the Sefaria translation is quote “the work of many tens of people, all of them Orthodox, as far as I know. (I worked on it myself.)”. To which I answered that the Sefaria website itself actually very proudly and clearly says that it is the work of non other than Dr. Judith Hauptman who is quote “the first woman to receive a PhD in Talmud and the first woman to be included in Sefaria’s official list of Talmud commentators”. And yet you still claim to have semicha…June 14, 2022 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #2096818
You have assumptions and summations about various posters. Yet you complained over your own perceived slights.June 14, 2022 11:23 pm at 11:23 pm #2096924Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
> “A person’s brain isn’t fully developed until he’s 25, cut him some slack
This is not an insult, or a joke, but a medical fact. your frontal cortex continues developing executive functions, and the more you organize your thoughts, the better it will develop! (this is one of the reasons of draft being for younger men who are mature physically, but do not value themselves yet).
It would be an insult to say the opposite that your brain will not develop further ….
PS I also want to express my appreciation to the mods, who are always great at censoring others and are also the sole readers of the majority of my posts!June 15, 2022 8:41 am at 8:41 am #2097001
“This is not an insult, or a joke, but a medical fact.”
That’s true however the assumption or joke was that he’s under 25, who says? Maybe big bochur is 35, I’m just assuming and making it into a joke
There really is no reason to joke about and offend people on here
We need to be חברים
I’m sorry againJune 15, 2022 8:42 am at 8:42 am #2097009
@Always_Ask_Questions, for all I know there’s a very high chance that you’re a little 15 year old kid messing around on ywn hiding behind a screen pretending to be an adult.June 15, 2022 10:41 am at 10:41 am #2097059GadolhadorahParticipant
Let it go. Some of you guys really don’t know when you’re being trolled by a poor version of the Trollster Rebbe.June 15, 2022 10:42 am at 10:42 am #2097075
@Bucher, Am I suppose to insulted? Sorry I dont get insulted from the remarks of a some immature teen, anyway wishing you the best and hopefully we will talk in a few years when you grow up.June 16, 2022 1:26 pm at 1:26 pm #2097616Zaphod BeeblebroxParticipant
“as far as I know the most intelligent thing you’ve said is ‘you are a troll’.”
Aha. So you agree that calling you a troll is an intelligent statement, meaning that you agree you’re a troll (though not a very good one), and yet you still expect people to take you seriously and not assume that any specific post from a self declared troll is in fact a troll post in that scenario as well, but rather that this time it’s actually something smart. Yes, that makes total sense. I see now.June 16, 2022 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #2097625
SorrY I dont respond to teens who are buzy with owning a gorilla and having multi personality disorderJune 16, 2022 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #2097636Zaphod BeeblebroxParticipant
Being as my comment was directed at bigbochur and not you it would indeed be strange if you did respond. Although I must commend you on doing your homework and reading up on my post history before attempting to rip on me for absolutely no discernible reason. It’s nice to have a fan.
Additionally, while a teenager I may be, I at least can spell like an adult, an issue which you seem to have trouble with. Please accept my most sincere wishes for your hasty and complete resolving of this matter.
As always, I thank you for your wonderful contributions to the conversation. For truly you do uplift the level of said conversation, by virtue of your wit, intelligence, and complete and utter disregard for context. It’s been a pleasure.
