Like many others, I was silently following many threads without signing up or participating. I found the threads and comments from RGP entertaining, controversial, thought provoking and got others to react in conversation. Some of RGP’s threads ran 3 pages. I am sad she was blocked and now the topics will miss her spice and spunk. The coffee room will now return to plain vanilla decaffeinated. Is that good, bad or ugly? Was she “top much”? I found that she challenged me to look at myself, wake up and react. I will miss her and the reactions she evoked from others (plus all the Torah sources and quotes which were refreshing). May her screen name Rest In Peace.May 23, 2019 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm #1732576

Silently following or authoring?May 23, 2019 11:34 pm at 11:34 pm #1732580
And when you look at yourself, what do u see?May 24, 2019 12:38 am at 12:38 am #1732582
How could you possibly ”notice” that it was blocked ?
Is there like a way to check if someone is blocked?
Like many others I read many of its comments.
Some were weird, some stupid, and most were juvenile.
But too many were outright insulting, and attacking, yidden, yidishkit, and distorting halacha, as well as poking fun at many of minhagay yisroel.
It did not belong being given a platform to spread its poison.
(as a comparison. There are many threads here where people really go at each other, including name calling, attacking minhagim and the like.
However the general feeling is that it is really a frank and open discussion with certain niceties removed due to the anonymity afforded by a screen name.
That’s in some sense a beautiful thing as well as anyone who gets involved is or should be aware of what they are getting into.
Like chabad shelucha .she knows good and well that she will be subjected to full frontal attacks. But she is basically saying that’s why I am here. Attack and I will explain. No holds barred and may the ”correctest ” one win)
But this vermin was in it for only one thing.
Now that’s also great
Until you start using devorim shebikedusha for your fun.
Think about it.
David hamelech was punished for calling Torah a song.
And we can all understand that if said that with the utmost respect for Torah. But he was punished for the choice of words.
Can you imagine this maggot????
Good riddanceMay 24, 2019 9:11 am at 9:11 am #1732630
At least now you’ll be posting under a moniker of only bidieved.
As I don’t know you it’s certainly possibly that Bidieved you keep halacha.so no issues there.
But now your rants against Torah will hopefully be dismissed by the mainstream readers as the bitterness of someone who has not found the sweetness of yahadus.May 24, 2019 10:04 am at 10:04 am #1732638
Lol, he’s not trying to hind it. The username makes it clear who the OP is. So, RGP got blocked?
As much as I found his antics entertaining at times, it was inevitable. Trolling will always involve trickery, but doing so with the halachah is for sure lifnei iver. There’s a dark possibility that RGP actually thought it would be funny if he could convince unlearned readers to follow a made-up halachah (similar to how trolls on the ganzer internet think it’s funny to convince people that things are secret racism when they aren’t).May 24, 2019 10:31 am at 10:31 am #1732647
“Silently following or authoring?”
Couldn’t have said it better myself 29.
I was wondering how does someone that is blocked post under a different sn?May 24, 2019 11:46 am at 11:46 am #1732649
On that note was Chabad Shlucha also blocked or did her husband tell her it’s pointless to debate these dour snags?May 24, 2019 12:13 pm at 12:13 pm #1732669
At least half his stuff was tongue in cheek , his halachic “lifnei ivers” were no different then threads where people are bashing other peoples’ halachic presentations with THEIR rabbonim vs. the other side with THEIRS….. in a CR mind you, not in beit midrash. Plenty of bashing and lashon hara especially on some long threads, so let’s not take a holier than thou attitude, myself included.
His main issue, I think, was sometimes being nasty for no apparent reason when debating halacha which should be a logical debate instead of a fight…
Everybody has meshugaasin , I, you , and even the Mods🤣🤣

CA, make a new account.

I think even the moderators had enough of RG’s chumras and saying people who are meikel are “wimping” out. Thers’e a story with R’ Moshe Feinstein that someone asked for a psak and wasn’t looking for kulos. R’ Moshe responded if the halachah allows for a kulah I will pasken that way.May 24, 2019 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #1732752
Joseph; “shluach”? Now that raises an interesting question about your background.
It would seem that you are not a Yekke but rather of Polish, Hungarian, Romanian etc. descent and are assuming that shliach is pronounced by Yidden from other countries as shluach. Similar to shkuah instead of shkiah.
Or it could just be a mere typo as I just now noticed that the letter u is right next to the letter i. I guess I’m not such a professional typist.May 24, 2019 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #1732753

I was under the impression that mods know if multiple accounts are by the same person and therefore quash the account before it starts
At least that’s how I thought they do it with Joe
I guess I was wrong

Are you kidding? Did you just not read RGP’s threads, or do you really not see the difference?May 24, 2019 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #1732796

Well, I think blocking RGP is long overdue. Whoever he/she is, that person is malicious, offensive & downright obnoxious. Good riddance!
Chabadshlucha, you have enough to do on your shlichus (wherever it is) without responding to all the shtussim here. Leave that to Joseph, he has plenty of time on his hands. Unless of course he is RGP’s alter ego, in which case he needs to go as well. Too many similarities between the two of them.May 28, 2019 1:28 am at 1:28 am #1733799
You asked “good, bad, or ugly”
Sorry I can’t comment on that. However, IMO it’s horrifically ugly that there are zero frum forums where serious females (the types who shrink from aggressive debating) can feel comfortable posting. On the CR forums, if our posts don’t fit in with the prevailing pattern of boringly-brainy debates and boringly-aggressive leitzunut, so help us. And if we dare to truthfully whistleblow about urgent matters, we’re censored.
So yea, bring on the leitzunut however unconstructive – yet censor the very-constructive whistleblowing… just consider that it’s hypocrisy such as this which has turned off the most sensitive FFB’ers. And consider it a major miracle that some of us are still hanging on by the tips of our fingernails these many decades.May 28, 2019 11:02 am at 11:02 am #1733891

I had the same thought. Imamother is the perfect place for women (and men pretending to be women) to hate on all things religious and pontificate deeply on how they certainly could have done it better had they only been consulted but…hey…what can you expect….May 28, 2019 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #1734403

Syag, are you referring to the site that you described as to hate on all things religious?
If someone leaves their wallet on the dashboard of their unlocked car, describing that scenario as an easy target for a thief obviously is referring to someone not following the Torah’s expectations.May 29, 2019 7:24 am at 7:24 am #1734819

I don’t regular imamother (I guess we are allowed to say it) on account of my manliness, but I’ve never noticed any anti-religious activity over there. I occasionally see imamother forums when I google a certain community to find information about it. The posts over there tend to be more informative than here (eg. this school has this hashkafah, then this one is like this, etc…).
Over here, when someone tries to make a post like that the responses are just: “why not move to Israel!? Why do you love galus?!?!,” and “no! what’s wrong with Brooklyn?! Or Lakewood? Do you hate frum yidden, you koifer!?!?!”May 29, 2019 10:49 am at 10:49 am #1734928
