    streek – I have seen comments like this before and I’m just wondering if anyone thinks about how it must make some of the present posters feel. Perhaps saying those posters are missed would be kinder than ‘dissing’ those who are here. (nothing personal, just had this question)

    You know me better than that Syag. I am in no way putting down the “here and now” posters.

    If anything I think if I’d spend more time here like I did back then I would have plenty of new friends that I wouldn’t have time to miss the old timers 😉

    To be or not to be, Rebyidd, PAA and plenty others that I don’t know by name yet are making this place wonderful!! I’m considering coming back full time as soon as things calm down in a few more weeks.

    Come to think of it Syag, you’re rarely seen around these parts of town recently. What gives?

    Old timers? Please. OURTorah joined just over a year ago. Eclipse joined 3 years ago. WIY was about 4 years ago.

    There are posters who joined when the CR was first launched, in January 2007. My friend Feif Un was one of the original posters. Look back at some of the really old threads and you’ll see who the old timers were.

    I miss Feif Un posting here. Luckily I can talk to him face to face!

    for a tekufa there many of the things I said would get twisted around and it got frustrating. Plus I figured if I am not being helpful to anyone why try. Time passes tho and I try to pick my topics carefully. Glad to see you, btw.

    DaMoshe – It’s a good thing you didn’t look at my profile cuz I’m definitely not an old timer either according to your definition. There are plenty of real old timers that I unfortunately never got the chance to know. I was just listing some posters that I know from my first months here that don’t post anymore.

    On the same topic, its almost time for my birthday bash. Just put some champagne in the fridge… All is invited.

    Syag – While I don’t post as much as I read nowadays, (I’m a real lurker) I miss your input!

    Thanks for the shout out. But for the record, I predate two thirds of the list of “old-timers”.

    It’s actually almost 3.5 years.

    I’m talking about the break you took from the CR. Your first post in years was on the “Continuation of Discussion on R’ Slifkin and Weiss from Manchester Eiruv Thread”. That was 6 months ago. The last time you posted before then was roughly 3 years ago. So you haven’t been here for 21/2 years.

    Unless you have more than one screen name…

    I see the mistake that you made: The list of threads in someone’s profile is listed in the order that that person posted on them, however if that person in the future posts again on one of those threads, it will move to the top of the list. Therefore if you see that the bottom of my list is from three years ago and suddenly it goes to six months ago it could be that in the interim I was active, and all the threads I posted on during that time I also posted on within the last six months. That being said it is true that I was very sporadic during that time (I think I only posted on the Techeiles thread for that entire period but lemaaseh I was here). The Slifkin thread is what drew me back into the main coffee room because it seemed to me that no one was adequately representing one side of the issue.

    Aha, thanks for taking the time to explain that (you know you’re good at explaining, right?). Could you imagine, I would’ve never thought so deeply about your existence if not for this thread.

    On a side note, I see that some still haven’t gotten my name straight…I guess that’s a sign that I’m not an authentic old timer yet.

    “Aha, thanks for taking the time to explain that”

    You’re welcome.

    “you know you’re good at explaining, right?”

    If I didn’t I guess I do now. Thanks for the compliment.

    “Could you imagine, I would’ve never thought so deeply about your existence if not for this thread.”

    I hope it was a productive use of your time.

    There are some posters who joined right at the beginning who still post.

    Charliehall joined on 1/2/07, and he still posts.

    Joseph (the original one) joined on 9/20/06. He still posts under many different names.

    yiddishemishpacha joined on 5/2/08. He last posted a month ago.

    Those are just a few names I found by looking at a very old thread.

    LF – If you would get paid for every time you put yourself down, you’d be able to devote your whole life to the CR cuz you’d have no need for a job. You’re not just a GOOD old timer, you’re an AWESOME one!

    SHopping – Not in your wildest dreams, I don’t think there is any way I can forget you…We have too much of a history. You just weren’t included in my list cuz I’ve seen your name around here recently. The posters I listed were ones I haven’t see in a while…

    #1106159

    StreekGeek:

    And do you get paid for doling out compliments, praises by the dozen?

    Speaking of old-timers, wasn’t That long ago, but does anyone else still remember aurora777?

    This is the time of your to take pause and remember the tale (tall tale?) of her walking along the beach collecting seashells and watching the waves crashing on the shore (with her dog, was it?) when a group of adorable children invited her in to hear T’kiyas Shofar at their charming beachfront house.

    Where has aurora777 gone?

    Was she a real woman?

    A real man?

    A real troll?

    A really good storyteller?

    Or perhaps the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the innocent, unsuspecting members of the CR?

    golfer, I do not remember that particular story, but I recall she(?) was a cat-enthusiast so I would guess it was a cat…

    I have wondered what happened to her. Seems like she just disappeared with no explanation! Maybe she found out for certain that she was Jewish and is working on coming back “home”? I hope her mother is doing well and recovering.

    aurora, wherever you are, and whoever you are, we wish you a happy sweet new year filled with health and happiness! Please come back and let us know how things are going…

    All the best!

    And by that, do you mean “was niftar“?

    In the year, tuf-shin-lamed-tes

    There’ll be a daily paper called the Jewish Press

    For fifty dollars you can check it out, folks

    To see if Arnold Fine has run out of jokes (whoa-oo-whoa)

    Oops, that should’ve been Taf-taf-lamed-tes!

    Taf-shin-lamed-tes was 34 years ago.

    That really is an old-timers’ song, though – I just remembered that this year was Taf-shin-ayin-gimmel! Boro Park survived (of course).

    (Fortunately for him, there were no predictions in the song for this year. When 5784 rolls around, watch the esrog prices! But the prediction for 5796 is simply impossible [a shteeble every 15 feet].)
