joseph – have you never had a “good think” yourself? JK, OK you caught my first(?) typo.January 13, 2009 3:14 pm at 3:14 pm #831851
can we make sub categories?
squeak is the sharpest poster
Joseph is the most amiable and levelheaded poster
asdfghjkl is the most excitable poster
Will Hill, feivel, notpashut, Pushutah Yid and beacon run in the same smart, to the point and toichendig category
moish01 is currently the most popular poster
Charlie Brown and qwertyuiop are the most easygoing posters
i will not get started on the mods
That’s an entire paragraph of compliments (how’d i manage that?). congrats
and i apologize in advance for all those I left out- it takes a lot to get a compliment outta me 🙂January 13, 2009 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #831852
hey, Joseph, that means “friendly”, or “agreeable”.
areivimzehlazeh is the self-esteem boosting poster, a position that is/was also held by charlie brown. We can have more than one of those!January 13, 2009 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #831853CuriousMember

squeak- the “real world” ppl i surround myself with would die twice over from laughter if they heard you say that bout me
hey charlie- i take it as a compliment to be like you. you may now TAKE A BOW
so- brook- we need a chairwoman for the board meeting Charlie, Rosh Yeshiva and i need to have- for my 2 diff positions here in the CRJanuary 13, 2009 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #831856
curious- check out sephardim, ashkenazim topic and stop that annoying sniffleJanuary 13, 2009 6:00 pm at 6:00 pm #831857YW Moderator-72Participant
just added number 9, inspired by… you can figure it out.January 13, 2009 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #831858
thank you and I hereby take a bow.
did you say chairwoman? Are you a feminist in disguise? 🙂January 13, 2009 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #831859
murphey’s law that this topic had to be moderated by the very strict mod72. I’ve come to the realization that mod72 takes pride in being tough and actually ENJOYS increasing his toughness as we increase our whining about it. so- i’ll stop asking, begging, pleading… and i’ll start punching, attacking…. and visit the anger management topic every 5 seconds
certain things are typed in jest and we accept that. other times the attempted humor crosses the border and the posts are either edited or deleted.
btw we do not divide the threads for moderation so whether you get the very strict mod72 or the very lenient mod72 or mod42, mod55, mod99 is all just timing. YW Moderator-72January 13, 2009 6:26 pm at 6:26 pm #831860
charlie brown: disguise? who needs disguises with generic screen names like charlie brown, chofetz chayim, rosh yeshiva, joseph, chacham, moish, intelligent etc.
btw: brook is a female and nominated herself chairwoman of the CR board meetings. do you really want me to ask her to be chairman? excuse me- i need to go take care of that sudden pain in my sideJanuary 13, 2009 6:30 pm at 6:30 pm #831861Bais Yaakov maydelParticipant
hmm just cuz i havent posted for, what, a day, means im outta the loop??January 13, 2009 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #831862
mod72- i hear you loud and clear but you gotta be able to take as good as you give
I let you and others say anything you want about me. I think that you know why I edited some of your comments – remember this rule: not everything that is typed with a smile is read with a smile even with a :o) or :} or any other variation. The tone can come across completely different from what is intended maye on the list I will add 10) those that understand what is typed is not always what is read :o) YW Moderator-72 if you want specifics of your posts, I can be reached at moderator72 at yeshivaworld.comJanuary 13, 2009 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #831863
ok, either I’m having a senior moment and have forgotten brook requesting that position or I missed that post (There is no way that even an addict like me can make time to read every post in every thread, I usually just stick to certain threads and don’t even open the others). No I don’t expect you to call her chairman, lol.January 13, 2009 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #831864
mod72- you bring some serious de ja vu to the CR. your tone sounds too similar to some of my teachers from way back
it is very scary how things get misconstrued and misinterpreted when written instead of spoken. i really do not intend for my remarks to have a snide, negative or nasty connotation. the ppl that know me well, know how to take my comments (and what I mean when I say it). i will sincerely try to do teshuva (even though i DO re-read my posts b4 sending) and will try to delete phrases which are bound to get u ticking. but u have to admit all the juice has just run outta the CR
and one more item- i’m feeling very singled out to get a mussur shmooze. i can list a few others that can use it too (but i won’t since that will be my first violation since deciding to do teshuva)January 13, 2009 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #831865DebbyMember
“areivimzehlazeh” your voice sounds very familiar, was your original screen name “Don’t have Internet”?January 13, 2009 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #831866YW Moderator-72Participant
rest assured that you are not the only one being edited / deleted. all posts go through moderation – there are NO automatics. there are posters that have never met the delete or edit button and yet we continue to read all their posts.
don’t be offended, keep posting and don’t worry if some of your posts do not make it into the thread either as submitted or in an edited version. btw If you were to start a thread about who is upset with mod72, it would probably break all records.
I’ll let you in on a little secret: way back in time, when I first started posting on the main page (long before the coffee room) I also had posts moderated out – one time I even had the editor call me out on one of my posts (no, I am not going to say what it was about). let me just say that my “facts” were in fact not facts.January 13, 2009 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #831867
ok areivim, on behalf of the YWN noderating board we’ll now come clean. You are the only poster left who is not a moderator. There are really only 5 posters here besides you, all using multiple screen names to confuse you. 4 had already been mods and now the last became mod55, so now you are indeed the only one left to single out for moderation.January 13, 2009 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #831868
mod72- what a comfort you are. to quote asdf: i feel all fuzzy & warm inside
Debbie: WELCOME! are you new? please ask our usheress, asdf, to direct you to the correct first topic you should be visitingJanuary 13, 2009 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #831869
charlie- this is gonna be my third fainting spell of the day (follow other threads). you gotta give a guy a breakJanuary 13, 2009 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #831870DebbyMember
no, i am not new over here,I just don’t always have the pations & time to post.
I always read the CR posts & never really saw your name to much thats why i figured your using a new screen name cuz you sound like you know everyone her. Am i correct?January 13, 2009 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #831871
woah a whole lot has happened here today while i was at work! lol areivim you seem to be having a public DMC with mod72 :}January 13, 2009 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #831872
lol charlie – btw you mean i’m still a suspect???
:}January 13, 2009 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #831873
charlie, I just got off the phone with the other 3 noderators and we all agreed that your noderating privileges are hereby revoked because you gave away that secret.January 13, 2009 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #831874
still a suspect? my mind is blank I have no idea what you mean, sorry.January 13, 2009 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #831875
can’t I please get just one more chance?January 13, 2009 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #831876
charlie – you cleared it that areivim isn’t a mod. how bout me?
ps – way too many senior moments lately… maybe you should see a doc…January 13, 2009 9:24 pm at 9:24 pm #831877
the good thing about having senior moments is that you forget them and then think you haven’t had any, lol. no, I thought maybe on some other post I had said I suspect you of something but couldn’t remember what.
anyway, of course if I am a mod then you are also, being we are both screen names belonging to one person. You’re taking this split personality thing way too far aren’t I err you?January 14, 2009 12:36 am at 12:36 am #831878
wow i missed so much here in the cr durring the day!!! i’m more of a night poster!!!
Curious: your our artist!!!January 14, 2009 12:38 am at 12:38 am #831879

Mod72 i can’t believe this, another mistake:
The tone can come across completely different from what is intended maye on the list I will add 10) those that understand what is typed is not always what is read :o) YW Moderator-72
last i checked maybe is spelled with a ‘b’.January 14, 2009 2:54 am at 2:54 am #831881
Y’know, I try very hard not to ask “where’s my post” and not to try to sneak it through a second time, because I understand how it annoys you, O gracious mods. But when I am attacked and I respond with a brilliant retort, I would expect that you would replace the offending word (humil*ate) with a more acceptable one rather than just deleting me.
I have a good record, y’know. That should count for something.January 14, 2009 3:14 am at 3:14 am #831882JosephParticipant
squeak, I must’ve missed that ‘attack’ on you.January 14, 2009 3:16 am at 3:16 am #831883
Yeah, for once it didn’t come from you.January 14, 2009 3:21 am at 3:21 am #831884JosephParticipant
I still missed it. Is it gone now? happy? 🙂January 14, 2009 4:34 am at 4:34 am #831885
areivimzehlazeh: btw the !!!! are my signature thing around here!!!January 14, 2009 5:12 am at 5:12 am #831886
he’s a smart man. i’m SURE he’s figured that out, asdfghjklJanuary 14, 2009 5:34 am at 5:34 am #831887

Wow areivimzehlazeh I must’ve really been gone a long time if I didn’t make it to your list. I used to be the biggest YW poster after all!

There are no favorites.They like everyone equally.
***They do like me best though 😉January 14, 2009 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #831891SJSinNYCMember
I’m surprised I didn’t make the favorite list. I am so charming 🙂January 14, 2009 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #831892Pashuteh YidMember
Mod-42, thanks for the heartfelt compliment. I sometimes get frustrated that my words are hitting a brick wall. I am glad that somebody appreciates them.
I hadn’t been keeping up with all the recent threads, as there are so many new ones, and the number of responses has grown to over 1,000 in some, so it gets hard.
Also, I had been getting frustrated that I would debate some people on a news item or CR thread many months previously, and then all of the sudden they would bring up the same topic in a new thread and start from scratch with their position as if everything we had discussed the first time had totally been discarded. I felt like my posts were useless and not getting anywhere.
The bottom line of my whole hashkafa is that achdus is key, and we must appreciate every individual’s contribution to the klal and not be mevatel anybody. I think the current war and the Mumbai massacre has made the klal closer.January 14, 2009 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #831893myshadowMember
Pashuteh, everybody listens but that’s the way jewish ppl are we like arguing the same stuff over n over again stam to argue! 🙂January 14, 2009 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #831894
SJS – how about – even i wasn’t on the list. not for anything, but maybe they’re talking about third place. i’m automatically in 1st :}January 14, 2009 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #831895
brooklyn- a compliment from you, i’ll have to go to qwerty to pay for that
asdf- my name is areivimzehlazeh, nice to meet you too- end
squeak- i’m honest to goodness upset i missed your comeback on the attack (which attack?). curiosity is gonna drive a hole thru me
myshadow- how true, how sadJanuary 14, 2009 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #831897
If anyone else had asked, I would have ignored it. But from you, areivim, I cannot refuse anything. I was upset that brooklyn challenged my knowledge of Sephardic foods, and I came back with what I thought was a good tsu shtel as a retort.January 14, 2009 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #831898SJSinNYCMember
Pashuteh Yid, I appreciate your posts!
Brooklyn, I know you think you are number one, but sadly (for you), I think I am placed above you. We can’t all be number one, and you have a lot to learn to get there 🙂January 14, 2009 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #831899
squeak- our loyalty blossoms day by day. but you didnt even post a revised version of your gezinteh shtuch. please put me at easeJanuary 14, 2009 8:49 pm at 8:49 pm #831901
it’s ok – my ego can handle it. whatever you say. but i know i’m still the best and you can’t argue that if i wont argue back ;}
squeak – actually i never saw it – just looked at it now. THAT’S what bothered you? wow either you’re way too good of a person (which you might be anyway!) or i still didn’t get it… lol it was actually what i was thinking when i wrote that. don’t sit over it – i’m brooklyn19 – i don’t take anything to heart!
