As your sponsor, I am compelled to insist that you refrain from continuing to lurk or post in the Coffee Room for the next 10 days. Your additiction is out of hand, and you must take a 10-day break.
Effective immediately. You may post one reply, if you desire, to this message and immediately thereafter start your 10-day break.

Will Hill: wow thanx!!! the only thing is, is that like i told you when you became my sponsor that my other addiction before this addiction was a lot worse of an addiction!!! i really feel that if i stopped the cr i would revert back to the other addiction-one that as a member of klal yisroel i’m not proud of!!! i’m 100% serious here, i’m not kidding!!! you see my dilema here!!!January 16, 2009 5:09 am at 5:09 am #635673feivelParticipant

qwertyuiop; i would tell ya, the only issue is the cr would never put it up!!! i have a very addictive personality btw!!!January 16, 2009 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #635676
asdfghjkl:$$ok, don’t worry i’m not insulted$$January 16, 2009 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #635677
The trick to kicking this addiction is simple. Log out. As long as you do not post, the threads will become less and less interesting to you. After a while you won’t even come on to read.January 16, 2009 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #635678
hey surprisingly this place does get kind of addictive
moish01 – do you want to post a D’var Torah next week? Which night can I sign you up for? YW Moderator-72January 16, 2009 7:16 pm at 7:16 pm #635679
I was wondering whether or not you’d approve my post. I guess it wouldn’t be good for business, right?January 16, 2009 7:16 pm at 7:16 pm #635680
you’re kidding. what’s this weeks parsha anyway? i have no idea.
I am signing you up for Thursday. It gives you a week to figure out what to post. It can be on Parsha Va’eira or anyother Torah thought that you want to share. thanks and have a pleasant Shabbos. YW Moderator-72January 16, 2009 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #635681

moish: it doesn’t get kind of addicting, it gets very addicting.January 16, 2009 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #635683
…works every time 🙂
it all has to do with the backlog and currently the backlog of posts to be reviewved is long. have patience.January 16, 2009 7:22 pm at 7:22 pm #635684
Mod72 – you are a tough man!January 16, 2009 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm #635685
you’re crazy. i can’t do it. too hypocritical. don’t sign me up – you want to make sure you’re gonna have one, right?January 16, 2009 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #635686
moderator72- you asked a QUESTION:
“moish01 – do you want to post a D’var Torah next week? Which night can I sign you up for? YW Moderator-72”
i answered: NO!
you answered you’re kidding. what’s this weeks parsha anyway? i have no idea. which is not: yes or NO – Don’t sweat it. If you want to, fine and if not, no problem.January 16, 2009 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #635687
Moish, I believe you are perfectly capable. If you need any guidance to get you started, have Mod72 drop me an email. And yes, we do want to make sure we will have one on Thursday night and therefore, you will be seeing to it. Thank you in advance for accepting.January 16, 2009 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #635688
i’ll be honest: never mind if i’m willing to do it or not. i don’t think i could – i haven’t opened a sefer in over a year. embarrassing as it is, the girls on here could probably do a better job than me.
so let some of the others be honest also… they google a D’var Torah. I am sure you can find a nice little vort to share. Have a good Shabbos. YW Moderator-72January 16, 2009 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #635689
oh, and btw, moish, I am totally serious about that dvar torah.

you mean i don’t even have it read it first? sounds a bit like cheating to me (and that’s one thing i would never do) but ok, i guess i’ll take care of it, but if i can’t i’ll let you know.
and this is a one time deal.
DEAL! YW Moderator-72January 18, 2009 1:03 am at 1:03 am #635692
mosih01 – nah, you gotta read it first to make sure you like it and it’s appropriate.January 18, 2009 1:38 am at 1:38 am #635693
moish01: to be truthful, when it was my night i google a devar torah!!! just read thru it once to make sure that’s the one you wanna post!!! we’re all looking foward!!!January 18, 2009 2:33 am at 2:33 am #635695Joseph the 2ndMember
aqueak: thanx for the advice!!! i appreciated it!!!January 18, 2009 2:50 am at 2:50 am #635696
yeah nothing too frummy. don’t think i can manage that if it’s on the parsha.January 18, 2009 6:16 am at 6:16 am #635697
ames; yeah it seems like tonight’s a slow one here!!! it’s not always like this though!!!January 18, 2009 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #635698tzippiMember
I used to think it was addictive, but now that most of the conversation’s in the coffee room, not so much so. I find it much slower than the comments to an article, or the mailbag. You have to click, go on to the right page, etc. instead of just scrolling down. Whole thing’s a hassle and I do have a life.January 18, 2009 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #635699
asdfghjkl, did you stop engaging in your other addiction as a result of this one?January 19, 2009 2:47 am at 2:47 am #635702
mod72: who googles Divrei Torah?lol
Besides you? How should I know?!? YW Moderator-72January 19, 2009 3:11 am at 3:11 am #635703
will hill: yes i did!!!
qwertyuiop: WELCOME BACK!!! I MISSED YA!!!January 19, 2009 3:45 am at 3:45 am #635704
mod: that was a joke, and mine are obviously googled, how else would i write them.January 19, 2009 5:33 pm at 5:33 pm #635709mazal77Participant
yes it is very adddicting. I found about this site, because I wanted to find about a place where I can find a kosher source for the news. Then I stumbled into the CR.January 20, 2009 3:33 am at 3:33 am #635711veyatzivMember
It really helps curb the addiction when nooone moderates for a couple of hours. Then there’s nothing new to read. Thanks mods, Iguess you had a wedding tonight.January 20, 2009 4:10 am at 4:10 am #635712beaconParticipant
My guess is vacation…January 20, 2009 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #635713poshutMember
Perhaps the moderators could restrict each user to 2-3 postings a day, that should ensure people use CR appropriately.January 20, 2009 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #635715areivimzehlazehParticipant
SQUEAK! CURIOUS! and whoever else was losing posts… I FOUND THE CULPRIT! see above post from poshut
go get him guys- i’m outta hereJanuary 21, 2009 1:31 am at 1:31 am #635716
poshut: you should be in charim!!! how dear ya say that!!!???January 21, 2009 2:06 am at 2:06 am #635717RoshYeshivahMember
Poshit: Alot of ppl will suffer from such a rule. don’t you realize how many ppl use the CR in their free time?! i can’t imagine a world with all the bored ppl looking for an alternative!January 21, 2009 3:28 am at 3:28 am #635718
You mean we can stop blaming Joseph?January 21, 2009 4:19 am at 4:19 am #635719
i say we still blame joseph. he can handle it.January 21, 2009 4:23 am at 4:23 am #635720JosephParticipant
I’m like a sponge – soft and fuzzy. Place all your problems at my feet.January 21, 2009 4:25 am at 4:25 am #635721
by the way, this site is way better to be addicted to than other places. i gotta say thanks – you’re lessening my gehenom!January 21, 2009 4:29 am at 4:29 am #635722JosephParticipant
throw me your punchesJanuary 21, 2009 4:40 am at 4:40 am #635723
moish01: gosh, i sure hope no gehenom at all for ya!!! ya this place isn’t a bad addiction, compared to my last one this one’s awesome!!!January 21, 2009 4:52 am at 4:52 am #635725RoshYeshivahMember
Well joseph is behaving lately so i guess we should ease up on him:-)January 21, 2009 5:28 am at 5:28 am #635726
