To those that open up on YWN cofee room and share their questions and life stories- kol hakavod!
To everyone on yeshiva world coffee room: for some people this forum is the only place people feel safe sharing their personal feelings, stories and real questions. They feel safe because they do not have to share their real name.
I’ve been noticing that some people are just answering some posts as if they are a joke. I will not mention the names of those people as it would be lashon hora and rechilus but you all know exactly whom I’m referring to. I honestly do not think you understand the depth that your responses hold. If you take the time to give the person honest, heart to heart responses you can save a person who never thought there was hope of getting their private personal questions and concerns answered. Yet if you just make light of a persons situation and respond in a joking manner you can destroy this person’s last feeling of hope!
MY POINT: THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK!!!November 15, 2017 4:20 pm at 4:20 pm #1404398takahmamashParticipant

I don’t know which is worse – that fact that people would put private personal questions on the internet, or that they would trust anonymous people (who could be anyone) on the internet to give them correct and proper answers.November 15, 2017 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm #1404405
Againstallthishock, have you ever considered that maybe some people come here because they need a place to share their thoughts and jokes?November 15, 2017 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #1404410JosephParticipant
Some people are able to use humor in expressing profound responses to serious inquiries.November 15, 2017 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #1404481
We’ve finally reached the day where someone says that EVERYTHING I say is read and heeded!!!
This will be FUN!!! Mind you, care to rewind (mine) to 001 (actually I think you’d need 0001, mine go back a loooong way). Plow your way through all of them… every single narishKite and quip…November 15, 2017 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #1404558☢️ Rand0m3x 🎲Participant
Were some posts deleted in this thread?November 16, 2017 2:42 pm at 2:42 pm #1404909
@takahmamash you obviously never had a feeling of needing to share something private and had noone to tell. Dont judge a person until you in their place
@rebyidd23 not at someone elses expense. Kol hamevayish chaveiro birabim ein lo chalek laolam haba. And this is by the far the biggest rabim a jew can find-the coffee room.
@Joseph please c above response to rebyidd23
@little froggie stop rewinding-live in the present!November 16, 2017 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #1405006
I’m starting to stop.
and BTW (buy whichever way you want) Welcome to the CR. Were EVERYONE’s welcome. To Share anything! More of the humorous, fun convo, squabbling and plain chit-chat stuff than the intimate, private, earnest, life decision questions and quandaries normal people would go to professionals for. They’re bound by confidentiality laws etc…. we aren’t. The very nature of this place is for someone to come by read and give chizuk. A lift. A smile. A break from reality….
And mind you, I will not C”V let you accuse RebYidd (whichever gender he is) of being “mevayish chaveiro birabim”… In all time I’ve read her posts I’ve not seen one bordering on L”H, Oonaas Davar, Mevayesh or anything to that extent…. He is one of the nicest to grace our place… I don’t always catch on to what she’s writing, (sometimes it takes long), but it’s one I know is ALWAYS Lashon Hara free.November 16, 2017 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #1405011
Againstallthisshock -shkoyach!November 16, 2017 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #1405019
“And mind you, I will not C”V let you accuse RebYidd (whichever gender he is) of being “mevayish chaveiro birabim”…”
I didn’t think he was.November 16, 2017 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #1405023
And number two…
I’ve been here quite long enough (actually TOO LONG!!). Seen these cycles come and go. You have these long timers with their issues, predicticalities, come to the board each with his/her take. And then wvey now and then, a new one logs on and bashes the crowd, without having to know the very nature of its fabric…. to quote האחד בא לגור וישפוט. (oh, who said that?)
Cool down. Get to know us. And then… (everyone quick.. close your ears)November 16, 2017 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #1405052
Thank you, Little Froggie.November 20, 2017 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #1406391
Reb Yidd please inform of us of your gender. I dont chalila want to refer to you as something your not. Understandably, People nowadays are very sensitive about it.
Lilmod Ulellamaid- I have no clue who you are but thank you for rooting for me. It must be that extra time you spend engrossed in lilmod ulelameid that gives you such a clear head to agree with the basics that weve been discussing. Torah is what gives all of us the clarity we need.November 20, 2017 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #1406392
And little froggie if you are wondering why im not answering you its because im having a hard time talking to a frof- for two reasons:
1. a frog is not a kosher animal
2. A frog jumping is synonymous with my adhd which i do not like to think about
Please do not take this as a personal offense. I am working on letting these things not affect me. Give me a day or two and things will sit right with me.November 20, 2017 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #1407687
btw, I do agree with everything that LF said about RY. RebYidd is the best!!!
“to quote האחד בא לגור וישפוט. (oh, who said that?)”
Precisely the point.November 20, 2017 6:55 pm at 6:55 pm #1407699
Againstalthishock, my pronouns are “they” and “their” because I wear the crown.November 21, 2017 1:42 am at 1:42 am #1407860
LuL: That quote is not an incorrect one. A good line, one can learn from anyone. Meforshim do not criticize them for this statement. As too Chazal learn a thing or two from Lavan & Co. (ויעש משתה) A good thing you can learn from anyone.November 21, 2017 1:43 am at 1:43 am #1407861
againstallthishock: You try getting a straight answer from RY – good luck!!!!!!
And lest you be surprised later – Lilmod Ulelamaid is a girl!November 23, 2017 2:14 pm at 2:14 pm #1410136Burnt SteakParticipant
Doesn’t having the word “maid” within a name kind of give it away? Its a pretty good pun saying shes a servant of G-d.
