Smartcookie – no! i only know one person on here, and that person knows who i am and that’s it. I have NO CLUE who anyone else is and i don’t think anyone else knows who i am. (at least i hope so!)June 27, 2010 6:26 am at 6:26 am #799711smartcookieMember
I’m always trying to figure some people out but its not working! I just can’t seem to place anyone here!June 27, 2010 7:33 am at 7:33 am #799712emoticon613Member
people have found me out but i don’t care. i’m proud of my opinions and anyone who doesn’t like them stays away from me (personal experience). and if they stay away from me then it certainly makes no difference one way or another if they know ;).June 27, 2010 11:23 am at 11:23 am #799713smartcookieMember
Why would you stay away from someone just because they have a different opinion?June 27, 2010 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #799714cb1Member
sof davar hakol nishma its the same by me there is only one cr member that i know and he knows me besides that nobody knows who i am although i wouldnt mind knowing some other people hereJune 27, 2010 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #799715wanderingchanaParticipant
I don’t think I’ve posted anything so out of character for myself that I would care about being found out. If someone already knows me, they might be able to tell who I am depending on what I’ve posted, but that doesn’t really bother me. And BTW, I have 2 Facebook profiles, one for my pre-BT life and one for my current life. There, now you can all go out and “friend” me, LOL.June 27, 2010 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #799716sof davar hakol nishmaMember
cb1 – i WOULD mind if other people besides this one has found out who i am. One of the best things about this is that its anonymous. and i can post my true opinion, and people will argue/agree and discuss all anonymously.
Although i don’t think i’ve ever posted something that is out of character for myself, sometimes i have something to share, but i’m scared that someone who knows me will put everything together and chap who i am. Basically sometimes my opinions or comments would be too revealing.June 27, 2010 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #799717mischiefmakerMember
When I was new to cr I told my friend that I finally made my username after being an observer for a while. My friend went on and looked around for a new username and discovered me. Another two people since then have figured me out because of my posts.June 27, 2010 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #799718blubluhParticipant
I’d reply that while I do occasionally post to that web site, I do so anonymously and have no plans to confirm or deny authorship of a particular item.
I’d like my ideas to be judged on their merit and not on someone’s opinion of me personally. Similarly, I would not want someone to pigeon hole my views based on posts I made on other issues.June 27, 2010 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #799719HidingUnderCoverMember
Nope, this is and was my one and only screen name.June 28, 2010 5:29 am at 5:29 am #799720YW Moderator-42Moderator
Which leads us to the question, what are Kasha’s other screennames?June 28, 2010 6:35 pm at 6:35 pm #799721HidingUnderCoverMember
I would tell you, but then I would have to kill you.June 28, 2010 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #799722WolfishMusingsParticipant

Ooooh. Mystery. Intrigue. Suspense.
The CR is better than any mystery novel. 🙂
The WolfNovember 3, 2010 2:34 pm at 2:34 pm #799723
This didn’t happen on YWN but a site that my wife goes on.
My wife has a knack for figuring out who people are and two of the screen names that she figured out are sisters in real life.
Anyway- my wife and I get a kick out of watching their discussions go on and on (apparently they haven’t discovered each other yet but they seem to be good friends).November 3, 2010 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #799724
Doc Pepper –
I’m fully expecting to run in to you one day, and the lightbulb will go off over both of us simultaneously. The only question is, will it be a scene, or a silent exchange, that we both know, but still protect each other’s privacy?
Your sunday excursions seem to run along the same lines as mine, so odds are….November 3, 2010 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #799725
Well at least they are not arguing!
Does she know who I am? 🙂November 3, 2010 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm #799726blueberrymuffinParticipant
Dr. Pepper- I have one question for you:
Is Pepper your real name?November 3, 2010 3:58 pm at 3:58 pm #799727blueberrymuffinParticipant
Smartcookie- don’t worry- I don’t know anyone either (although my family knows what username I go by)!November 3, 2010 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm #799728WolfishMusingsParticipant
Heh. Someone here just emailed me this week and told me that they figured out who I am. And they were right. I know who the person is IRL, but I don’t know who s/he is on the boards. 🙂
The WolfNovember 3, 2010 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #799729
I’m waiting for the ax to fall one of these days since I think I’ve given out all the personal info possible save for my name and SS #…November 3, 2010 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm #799730
I’m not quite sure what to look for, but everytime I see a frum person shooting outdoor scenes on high-end photo equipment, I ask them, “are you a baal koreh?”November 3, 2010 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm #799731
I am laughing so hard as I type this. We took the kids for a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge last Sunday and we both predicted that we were going to see you on the bridge (surveying the new building going up nearby). Each time we passed a Frum person we looked at each other and shook our heads “no”. At one point a chassidishe guy flew by us on a bike with his beard flying in the wind and his payos we horizontal- we looked at each other and simultaneously said “there he is”.November 3, 2010 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm #799732
BPTotty- eh, you’re barking up the wrong tree. You should be asking, “Are you a ba’al kriah” instead.November 3, 2010 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #799733
Doctor P.- if you read the general schmooze thread you would have found out that bP Totty doesn’t wear a shtreimel so i guess you could scratch out the chassidish part….(i know not every chassidish person wears a shtreimel- but still)November 3, 2010 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #799734
Funny, as LAST sunday I was in Monsey, but THIS sunday, I might go bike riding.
Still, my payos flying? Nope. Tzitis, sometimes, but payos are not long enough.
But I’ll bet that the chossid on the bike was wondering if you and your family are the elusive BPTs??
Hmmm….?November 3, 2010 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #799735
What’s cool is that you don’t seem to care if you are “outed.” Either way you seem pretty comfortable with who you are and I don’t think you have said anything too damaging lol. It won’t be the end of the world if someone figures you out.November 3, 2010 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #799736bombmaniacParticipant
i know some people here…ive been “outed” as it were…everyone i know knows my username is always bombmaniac so when they see it they know it’s me, i have nothing to hide. what i post here is what i absolutely believe (including the letzanus :D)and i will defend it in real life as well as online.November 3, 2010 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #799737
It is what it is… I just hope to spare my family the embarrassment.November 3, 2010 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #799738
Same here, Bomb. The trouble is, my kids / wife think its weird to have conversations with people that I cannot see, and also, the whole “chat room” concept gets a bad rap in Bklyn, so for their sake, I try to stay under the radar. Fact is, if any of my “real world” friends read any of my posts, they’d spot me in a minute. One of them even has YWN as his homepage. Talk about seeing the forrest, but missing the trees.November 3, 2010 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #799739
Dr. Pepper is the closest a person here has come to outing me so far. If he had only figured out the wagon in time….
😉November 3, 2010 7:41 pm at 7:41 pm #799740
Sometimes i wonder if anyone can figure me out- i try not to get too personal, but you never know!
And BPT- its very possible you pass me on the street so if you figure me out don’t tell anyone!November 3, 2010 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #799741
Whoa. Spare your family the embarrassment? Not even sure what you mean by that although maybe if I knew your family Id understand. They’d be embarrassed by your cmments? Why are like the black sheep in the family?November 3, 2010 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #799742
Do we know each other in real life?
I assume you’re old enough to be my mother.November 3, 2010 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm #799743
I was being facetious… but yea if you knew my family youd know what I was talking about.
Sometimes I think I may know who you are actually, but I’m not sure…November 3, 2010 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm #799744oomisParticipant
I WAS kind of outed once, and I do not really care. I am not embarrassed by what I say, I try to be respectful, and really try to sound intelligent (though at times, I might fall short), so why should I care if “someone” knows who I am?November 3, 2010 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #799745myfriendMember
Sometimes I think I may know who you are actually, but I’m not sure…
That sounds like a wish…November 3, 2010 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #799746
I highly doubt anyone can figure me out- except for one friend who called me after my first post and figured out who I was. I would tell you who she is but have to ask her first. Then you guys can tell me if we are similar and fit into the same category! I highly doubt anyone else knows who I am (i have some friends who know my usename but they never go online so they wouldn’t know!)November 3, 2010 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #799747adorableParticipant
BPT and Pepper- I wanna be there when you guys meet! i don’t think anyone knows who I am….. I have another username and ppl know that one but I highly doubt you would ever think that i am the same person! For all you know I am mosherose….November 3, 2010 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #799748so rightMember
OMG coke!!! see my text…!!November 3, 2010 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #799749
Dr. Pepper, I can’t assure you that we don’t know each other, because I have not been able to figure out who you are.
I do think that I know which building you are in, but since your directory is not public (as opposed to the directory of the “other” society which is public) I can’t try to look you up.November 3, 2010 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #799750
so right-do i know who you are? do you know me? that would be cute:)November 3, 2010 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #799751
i do not get texts on my cell so if you sent me something then you are just going to have to call me if you think you know who i am! but i highly doubt you know me!November 3, 2010 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #799752
So ask him where he’ll be biking this Sunday and you can be a fly on the wall.
If it will make things easier we can go visit Bubby BP this Sunday.November 3, 2010 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #799753
You don’t know me. I’m sure of it.November 3, 2010 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #799754
That “wagon” riddle is driving me nuts. I’m not due back in the area for another few weeks, so hopfully when I go, the “wagon” is still there.
And Oomis – I fully believe that in one angle or another, we will cross orbits when I start doing shidduchim. Just a hunch, but that’s my guess. Either an aunt, or macheteneste, or a neighbor, or co-worker. Somehow, I just see it on the horizon.November 3, 2010 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #799755
hashemsprincess and I are very good friends and she spotted me in one second! after my first post she called me up to double check that i am “coke”….. BPT- where are you taking BP Mommy and the kids this week?November 3, 2010 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #799756
You’re being very cryptic but I think I know what you’re talking about. I’m not a member of any “society” as of now (hopefully soon I will be though). (I still have no idea what the “wagon” refers to.)
In any case the “society” that I’m trying to get membership in lists all the members of the other “society” in its directory. (They also publish a yearbook listing all the members of both societies.)
Being that I can’t think of anyone my mothers age asking the ==>>Monkey Riddle<<== I’ll have to agree that we don’t know each other.November 3, 2010 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #799757
Did you go to Chaim Berlin, and used to live in Monsey?November 3, 2010 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #799758
“BPT- its very possible you pass me on the street”
Hmm. lets see Blink; Based on what you’ve told us in the CR, I can construct the folloing bio:
Twenty-something, articulate, sem grad, lives in somewhere in NYC, (probably Bklyn, but possibly Queens. Not chassidish, probably wore her hair in a pony thru HS (possibly still does during the week) and down for shabbos, and is probably some sort of special ed profesional. Non-confrontational type, but has strong convictions, and can express her opinion clearly and convincingly when called for.
OK, Blinky, Ive got you narrowed down to one of 300+ people!November 3, 2010 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #799759popa_bar_abbaParticipant
All my friends know my username and text me when they think I said something funny.
I don’t mind if the whole world knows what I think.
