LF, I’ve been in shidduchim for a while; I ‘m really good at getting information out of people…
Lilmod: You understood my point perfectly. I believe there was some misunderstanding from the mystery mod’s side which helped that escalate to the point it did. I did specify at one point that I wasn’t saying whether or not their bias was a good or bad thing, just that I don’t agree with it being displayed in a mod-specific way.
The people are speaking! We even had a mod leak some of the inner workings of the CR. The 2016 anti-establishment sentiment has finally hit the CR! Almost new thread worthy I would say…
Syag, I’ve always found you to be one of the most moderate and agreeable posters in the CR. I really mean that.
Then again, the way I define moderate (and the way anyone does) will be considered religious right by some and religious left by others as we have discussed in other threads.
To anyone new: when we define each other (left vs. right) here, we usually all realize that we’re all talking on the frum spectrum. Nobody is suggesting that the “religious left” posters are actually in line with Conservative/Reform kind of religious left. When someone THAT religious left does occasionally blow in to offer up some information, we never scare them off with harassment and judgement, for which I’m very proud of the CR.
NCB: “Lilmod: You understood my point perfectly.”
“I believe there was some misunderstanding from the mystery mod’s side which helped that escalate to the point it did.”
“I did specify at one point that I wasn’t saying whether or not their bias was a good or bad thing, just that I don’t agree with it being displayed in a mod-specific way.”
That was definitely my impression. I didn’t think that you were attacking the mods in any way, and I even thought that your words could be seen as a defense of them, since most people would consider it a maaleh to be unbiased.
A quick clarification:
My previous posts were not meant to be bashing the mods in general. The mods are what makes this site different than any other site on the internet where the unfiltered nastiness of the internet is all too easily accessible. And I recognize that the mods are only human, and can’t make all the people happy all the time.
