    I spoke to Feif Un this morning to try and get him to return to the CR. Usually if I asked him, the response was a straight out “No”. This time, he said he’s thinking about it.

    Come on people, let’s get him to end his self-imposed exile and return to the CR!

    With a name like Feif Un shouldn’t he be ignoring what everyone else says and doing what he wants?

    Feif Un is a friend and co-worker of mine. He was one of the original posters here on the CR, from when it first opened. He left about 7 months ago because he was fed up with the attacks against Modern Orthodoxy. The thread that drove him away was found to be from another alt of Joseph’s, who had claimed he’d drive Feif Un crazy until he left. For the most part, Feif Un was a pretty well-liked poster here. When he announced he was leaving, a mod wrote this:

    “Good bye; we’ll miss you. We appreciate the diversity of ideas you bring.”

    I always tell him he should come back and stand up for what’s right. He’s a better writer than I am, so he’d do a much better job representing Modern Orthodoxy than me.

    I’ve let Feif know my thoughts.

    I’d love to see him back.

    I’d like to see him back too. But he’s an adult; he can do what he wishes.

    Thanks for all the support 🙂

    I think I’m going to try this again. DaMoshe talked me into it. I have some thoughts about yesterday’s chillul Hashem that I’d like to write about. I guess we’ll see if the mods here still have a double standard when I try to post it.

    We will give you benefit of the rule of returning feifers.

    But, we do not promise to not feif un you.

    Mods: I sent my post to DaMoshe to review. I’m asking him to post it for me, as I’m rethinking my position on returning. Please consider it my “return post”, and it might be my last (not including this one)

    Well, he will not get any special returning feifer dispensations.

    Yesterday’s chillul hashem? It was last week that Tendler publicly supported Christine Quinn’s anti Torah stance, not yesterday.

    Mods, I have a message for you from Feif Un (he said it to me, so it might not be word-for-word):

    “So they didn’t post my thread? That’s why I wasn’t sure about coming back. Things haven’t changed. If it was about a Modern Orthodox Rav, they’d have no problem posting it, but God forbid you should say something about a chassidic group even when they insult the biggest chareidi Rabbonim.”

    If Feif Un had posted it himself, would you have posted it?

    I emailed feif about it.

    Also, I would not have allowed that up about any MO rav.

    Also, what is the point here? Feif wants us to post things like that about MO rabbonim and also about chassidim? I would hope he would not want us to post conclusory accusations like that about anyone.

    Great, i missed ALL the excitement…DaMoshe, i requested a song and you said feif un had it and to email hin, BUT I DONT HAVE HIS EMAIL! So will you kindly find another way to get it me it, cuz mod-73 who seems to mod the most hates me and wont listen to me.

    Tell feif un that mods are less than 1% of the ppl here, it seems that he’s terrific, why shouldnt he stay and just avoid topics he know they wont post?

    Feif Un posted his email address in another thread. Seek and you shall find!

    After some emails with the mods last night, I agreed that some of my post was over the line. We disagree about other parts. I definitely disagree when the mod wrote above that they wouldn’t have allowed my post if it had been about a MO Rav. In the thread which prompted me to leave, people wrote that Modern Orthodoxy is not really Orthodox. Yeshiva University has had horrible things said about it. People have attacked MO Rabbonim such as R’ Tendler many times, claiming he disrespects his father-in-law, R’ Moshe zt”l all the time by twisting his words. Yet when someone like DaMoshe tries to write about another Rosh Yeshiva in the chareidi world who showed a complete lack of respect for R’ Moshe zt”l, it doesn’t get approved, because God forbid people should know that one of their Rabbonim almost had a cherem put on him by R’ Moshe zt”l!

    Feif,

    It seem to me that the most negatively toned posts and for that matter the bulk are by poster posting negative and false comments about chareidim.

    Why dont you tabluate the comments and commenters side by side.

    You can start with your good friend who post all the time in thnews section Gadolhadorah and move on from there.

    It is no wonder, really , that there is such a preponderance of non-chareidi posters on this site. But it ridiculous for you to deny that fact.
