    Not that long ago there was a letter to the editor about a problem that happened on Shabbos moninging. For the short time that it was listed there were many people suppoting the letter writer and obviously there were a few that felt that he was making a big deal about nothing. Then without warrning the post was gone. In my assumption there were to many negative comments and the editorial staff (who rightfully so) decided that it should be removed. This I have no problem with what so ever.

    However, we live in Golus, and unfortunate as it may be, there will be actions that are done in a public setting and while it may be fun at the time, are really creating a chillul Hashem. We need a forum where people can speak up and say, “Hey this isn’t something that a true yiras shamayoim should be doing!” When the act is being done on a public scale, the seriousness intensifies and there should be a kol/voice that goes out that says that this is wrong?

    On the other side, when put on display like this, events can easily be taken out of context, misinterpreted, and even cause a big issue than what ahd originally had taken place. There are going to be many types of people who read this forum and all coming from different backgrounds, we need to find a way to create achdus as we all try our best to make Klal Yisroel better.

    Any suggestions?

    Nothing wrong with airing dirty laundry.

    How do you think they handled the laundry before washers/dryers? Aired on the outside clothesline.
