I figured out a few by now,obviously.But many are a mystery.Any way to know?December 13, 2010 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #717141Trying my bestMember
It’s better off a mystery. Less chance for mischief.December 13, 2010 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #717142
Just gotta keep figuring it out. It’s not that difficult, with a little time. I don’t know why the mods can’t put a little ‘m’ or ‘f’ by each person’s name though. Oh, and I’m an ‘m’ by the way.December 13, 2010 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #717143gavra_at_workParticipant
I am Male.
For some of us it is easy.December 13, 2010 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #717144eclipseMember
“yita” is a guy??December 13, 2010 3:25 pm at 3:25 pm #717145RuffRuffMember
It might be better without it. The coversations won’t stop, it will only cause trouble.December 13, 2010 3:48 pm at 3:48 pm #717146bptParticipant
I agree with Trying (his?/her?) Best.
Even if you are talking to your own gender, other genders rerad your posts, so its important to keep the info as squeaky clean as possible.
In addition to gender considerations, there are ages and marital statuses other than your own that read the posts you make, so its best to stay on the safe side.December 13, 2010 4:16 pm at 4:16 pm #717147aries2756Participant
Eclipse, I would also rather know, and I have also figured out most. You can tell a lot by what they get tzihizt over.December 13, 2010 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #717148smartcookieMember
Anyone can fake male or female pretty well. You just can’t know.December 13, 2010 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #717149chesednameParticipant
I have a trick that has never failed.
If the poster is right, they’re male. If wrong they’re Female.
(thank G-D no one knows who i am, so i know i won’t get hurt 🙂December 13, 2010 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm #717150SJSinNYCMember
chesedname, by your own (false) logic, you must be female.December 13, 2010 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm #717151
LOL. I didn’t even realize that my screen name could be read as yita something, it has nothing to do with the name Yita. It’s a rather corny yeshivishe play on words, that is, “ur tayning (claiming) what?” a yeshivishe phrase used to ask someone what he means to say.December 13, 2010 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #717152chesednameParticipant
I might be 🙂December 13, 2010 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #717153
Chesedname is male, unless he/she is a liar. See, for example, http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/breach-in-tznius-recent-affliction-attacking-klal-yisroel, a little over a quarter of the way down.
SJS, I started thinking about your post, and my brain started to fry…December 13, 2010 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #717154
I’m a 95-year-old man. 🙂
And by the way, as I’m not a word, I don’t have a gender.December 13, 2010 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #717155
I happen to agree to what I think is your unspoken point, but fyi according to the online dictionary http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gender the term gender was used correctly according to the second definition.December 13, 2010 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #717156bptParticipant
95 y/o? We REALLY gotta watch what we say around you. The smallest thing could give a geezer like you a coronary, and would’nt that be a CR bummer.
But tell us, what was the CR like in the days before electrcity? Oh wait, 95.. forget electricity. What was it like before coffee was discovered?December 13, 2010 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #717157

It was really tough. All we had to drink was dinosaur milk.December 13, 2010 7:41 pm at 7:41 pm #717158

How can you know if someone is saying the truth?December 14, 2010 3:49 am at 3:49 am #717161☕️coffee addictParticipant

I think people just say stupid things to make others think things some are kinda obvious but others are kinda tricky like me…!
