The mods should answer that question they’re the ones that make subtitlesSeptember 1, 2016 5:12 pm at 5:12 pm #1184953
The mods should answer that question they’re the ones that make subtitles”
Thanks CA. I didn’t know that. I think there may be a rule about the same person not having more then one “name”, so if it’s from the Mods, I’m guessing it’s a joke?
NoSeptember 1, 2016 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #1184954
@ Moderators: So does that mean that Joe really has a few usernames?
Had. I don’t know of any others currently.September 1, 2016 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #1184955
Oh my, conversations about Joseph still dominate the Coffee Room!?September 2, 2016 12:35 am at 12:35 am #1184956
No, not dominate, just sprinkle for the uninformedSeptember 2, 2016 9:53 am at 9:53 am #1184957
Moderators: how would you know if it’s the same person? Did we have to give over any personal information when we signed up?
If you want information about a poster it would be best to ask them themselves
Joseph: Why in the world would you have used Likud for a username of all things?September 2, 2016 11:05 am at 11:05 am #1184958
Moderators: Chas v’shalom! I wasn’t asking for information about a poster.You mentioned above that you know that Joseph had a few usernames. I was curious as to how you would know that. That’s all. Not very important.September 6, 2016 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm #1184959
Have you read Rabbi Ginzburg’s article? Someone told me this week, that because of that article, he is writing a letter to his ex after hating her for so long. This is from the most eidel and sweet man I know, who I would never imagine hating anyone.September 6, 2016 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #1184960
Geordie613 – no, I haven’t seen a Mishpacha magazine in a while. But why are you davka asking me to read it???September 6, 2016 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm #1184961
Geordie613 -“he is writing a letter to his ex after hating her for so long. This is from the most eidel and sweet man I know, who I would never imagine hating anyone.”
I don’t hate my ex, but the ones that caused my divorce!September 7, 2016 11:38 am at 11:38 am #1184962
Because 6 days ago, you thanked me for the info.
Incidentally, i noticed that the article has been put on this site http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/headlines-breaking-stories/459491/the-hidden-world-of-shidduchim—by-rav-aryeh-zev-ginzberg.htmlSeptember 20, 2016 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #1184963

While you all are busy forgiving all the people you may have wronged, don’t for get to forgive yourself as well. S’shteit “b’tzedek tishpote amisecha.” you are also “amisecha” so judge yourself favorably as well.September 30, 2016 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm #1184966

And I would like to wish you a Gmar Chasima Tova and a really wonderful year! You should have clarity with all of your decisions, find a great therapist and a way to pay for her/him, and make the best decisions regarding seminary and your life plans! You should have Simchas Hachaim, meaning in life, wonderful friends who are good for you emotionally and spiritually, and B’ezras Hashem find the right guy at the right time!!!!October 5, 2016 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1184968

It’s Erev Rosh Chodesh Elul, Rabbosai. They say that in Elul even the fish give zich ah tzitter. What’s pshat? There are two kinds of animals. Warm blooded animals and cold blooded animals. And the fish, in the cold sea, are the coldest blooded animals. And even they tzitter from Elul.
Can we do any less?August 21, 2017 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm #1343650

“Cold-blooded” life-forms are those that do not generate heat internally – all of them are identically
cold-blooded. In any case, shivering from fear has nothing to do with body temperature.August 24, 2017 10:29 am at 10:29 am #1346693
To borrow the immortal request of my dear friend, that I cannot better verbalize:
I request mechila from anyone and everyone who I have hurt or wronged. This includes both those who post and those who only read posts. Whether I have been too harsh, angry, insulting, flippant, dismissive, thoughtless, wrongly suspicious, misleading, not helpful where I could have been, or guilty of any other action (or lack thereof) that caused pain, I ask for your forgiveness.
Nobody on this site needs to ask for my mechila, because any offense toward me was minimal and I am mochel it.

Coffee Addict – I apologize if I hurt your feelings in any way. I think I may have written something that upset you when I first joined the CR about a year ago. I don’t remember my exact words, but I do know that since then, I became aware of certain halachos regarding tochacha that I was not aware of at the time, so it’s very possible that I was nechshol in how I phrased things.
If so, I sincerely apologize and I hope you are moichel me.
With best wishes for a Kesiva v’Chasima Tova!
PS: please let me know if you see this.September 6, 2017 3:43 pm at 3:43 pm #1356882
To all of my fellow Posters:
Please let me know if I have offended you in any way so that I can have the opportunity to ask mechila.
If you are not comfortable doing so, please accept my apologies and please try to find it in your heart to be moichel me. I am sure that I did not mean to hurt your feelings (if I did do so)
Unlike Joseph, I am not a tzadik (es) and can’t promise to be moichel anyone who hurt me if they don’t make a point of apologizing, although I will try to do so.September 6, 2017 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #1357242

The Coffee Room is a forum that at times discusses very important issues. This can elevate the passions of its participants and sometimes hurtful words are exchanged. It’s therefore very appropriate that forgiveness is requested and granted, especially at this solemn time of the year.
However, if a poster spews a constant stream of cruelty, there is no way they can repent. Whether this person is being sincere in their beliefs or just trolling. Even if they issue a sincere-sounding blanket apology. Many of those who were hurt will not see that apology or simply not choose to forgive, especially when entire groups of people were targeted.
Yom Kippur does not atone for sins committed against our fellow Jews. A person who so stridently judges, maligns, impugns and hurts others, both individually and collectively has placed themselves in a very precarious position.September 7, 2017 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #1358693
Phil – personally, I think that if you have a specific issue with a specific thing that a poster wrote, you should find a way to let them know – politely and also privately, if possible. That’s just my opinion.September 10, 2017 7:50 am at 7:50 am #1359425
Please be mochel me, I am mochel all here, the coffee room is a family we may disagree with each other or sometimes mock others opinions but I don’t think any one here would be offended unless they did care about their fellow jew here. Am Yisroel Chai.September 10, 2017 8:37 am at 8:37 am #1359447

@syag hi I remember you said I offended you but I’m still not clear how and why, just that it was somewhere on a 19 page thread. So if you are still offended, id like to sort it now that I’m not being bombarded by hundreds of messages. Please let me know how I offended you so I can clarify matters and apologise if necessary. Thanks 🙂
