why?November 6, 2012 12:00 am at 12:00 am #902633abcd2Participant
I will be Dan Likaf Zechus that this was a misguided attempt to inject humor into the current crisis around us.
What has been accomplished is that a title for a thread that someone who is in a dire situation could actually use has now been taken.I would even say there is a possibility of Geneivas Daas by having this thread and wasting peoples time every time they click.Furthermore it can only inflict pain on those that see this who actually do need help (Regardless if related to Sandy or not BORUCH HASHEM A CRY FOR HELP IN OUR COMMUNITY IS NOT IGNORED),this is not a time for Laitzanus.While humor can many times help alleviate a situation this thread is certainly very inappropriate at this time of crisis for so many.May Hashem only grant us SimchasNovember 6, 2012 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #902634dhl144Member
guess it is…I usually add HELP when I am desperate for ppl to look at my post…I guess SOS would do the sameNovember 6, 2012 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #902635
1) This thread was created long, way long before Sandy was thinking about making an appearance here. About one year ago. All one participant did was to “Bump” it, which I suspect you did the same, BY FURTHER POSTING (and so am I).
2) So maybe the hurricane made genaivas daas from this old thread. I was here first.
3) People who remember this thread from a year ago, knew what to expect. Said poster is only “reminding us”.
4) People who frequent the hallowed walls of this Yeshiva World Coffee Room generally know what to expect.
5) I wouldn’t think you come here to seek refuge from “the crisis”
6) “May Hashem only grant us Simchas” – You gotta start. Smile. Make others smile. Of course we have to help out and feel for another. But that doesn’t mean to stop the world. No need to put anyone who attempts to smile on a quilt trip.

Besides – Look who started it. Have any complaints?November 7, 2012 12:50 am at 12:50 am #902637abcd2Participant
I stand by what I wrote. When you look at the YWN homepage,hear current appeals in Shules for sandy for people that literally now have only the clothes on their back, people that unfortunately are suffering greatly etc.. and you see HELP with exclamation points an immediate reaction is that someone is in need.
The realization of a spoof is only after you click through when you realize the thread is from a year ago.
Yes you are correct there have been many fun and satirical calls for help and other non-crisis in the CR but there is a time and place for everything.
I personally(as I am sure many others)know of people that have lost everything.When the news is covered with people suffering it is extremely insensitive to draw attention in such a manner.
This thread came as we had someone this past weekend on the CR begging for a generator for the disabled.I still maintain a cheerful personality but sometimes “the world does have to stop”if even only for a second.
