I’m actually proud that I didn’t make that list that everyone is referring to (although i did find mention of me in a later post). That means I am slowly being cured of this rediculous coffee room syndrome. I am proud to say that I am totally not updated on every thread! I actually had to go back to last page to skim through to see what everyone was talking about. It’s okay, I’m sure I didn’t miss much! 🙂January 14, 2009 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #831904charlie brownMember
did you say rediculous on purpose? oh and how’s the self esteem been lately? 😉January 14, 2009 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #831905intellegentMember
Aren’t you the one who is supposed to raise my self esteem and not point out my mistakes? I think that’s squeak’s job if I ricall (JK) correctly. No, I didn’t spell that way on purpose, but I’ll have you know that last time I replaced the “i” with an “e” was this same word, so I’m not really so bad.January 14, 2009 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm #831906brooklyn19Participant
my niece just got a computer game to help improve her spelling and reading. should i ask her if you could borrow it? i’m sure she won’t mind…January 14, 2009 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm #831907charlie brownMember
lol, sorry intellegent. You are the greatest most wonderful smartest, most intellegent person in this rediculous coffii room. Feel better? 😉January 14, 2009 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #831908anonymisssParticipant
areivim- Whenever you revise the list, (and this is just between the two of us,) you can just double-check before posting that my name is at the top.January 14, 2009 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #831909Pashuteh YidMember
Thanks to all for the kind words.
SJ, glad to see you have drastically cut down on the amount of sinning you do in NYC.January 14, 2009 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm #831910YW Moderator-72Participant
I think you get all the votes because you have the best bumper stickers! :o)January 15, 2009 12:37 am at 12:37 am #831911squeakParticipant
brook, I didn’t realize that you were referring to that! That is funny. Anyway, I wasn’t really insulted, but you made it seem like I had never had kibbe because I said it came out of the oven (which it might have that time, for all I know – it was served in an aluminum pan). My point was, just because I never cooked, er, fried it, doesn’t mean I never ATE it. I thought that it less defensive to point out how you repeat yourself than to actually defend myself.January 15, 2009 1:35 am at 1:35 am #831912
areivimzehlazeh: sorry i just got on now, thanx for the compliment$$January 15, 2009 1:47 am at 1:47 am #831913

Now, moderator, who do you really think gives the best posts or even the funniest ones. I am sure you chuckled while reading a few of them, if not most of them.January 15, 2009 2:53 am at 2:53 am #831917

Mod-72, When Lipa first stole my screen name, I consulted with my lawyers, as I noted here on YW at the time. I asked why Lipa couldn’t have named his album SammyGol, or ILuvChulent, or Jent, or GodolHador, etc. We could have had a whole bunch of bumper stickers running around town that proclaimed I am the Godol Hador. Imagine all that Daas Torah freely available. Why did he have to pick on me?January 15, 2009 4:40 am at 4:40 am #831922
asdfghjkl: i don’t really blame obseerver for thinking that we are the same person$$January 15, 2009 4:43 am at 4:43 am #831923
pashuteh yid: i think lipa likes you$$January 15, 2009 5:28 am at 5:28 am #831924
qwertyuiop: neither do i!!! pretty funny though!!!
pashuteh yid: wow that really gave me a good laugh!!!March 6, 2009 4:50 pm at 4:50 pm #831925squeakParticipant
39, care to share?March 6, 2009 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #831926
hey a forgot about this one. had to go back and see if it was even “during my time” 😉
yeah, 39 – don’t keep us all in suspense!March 8, 2009 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #831928
hey 39, can we get your opinion here?March 8, 2009 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #831929
isnt it obvious? Me! 🙂March 8, 2009 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #831930
you wishMarch 8, 2009 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #831931
Obviously those who stick to the rules (for the rest of the list, I will try not to use what other Mods have already said)
People who have their facts straight! I can’t stand people who post fake stuff, or manipulate things to serve their agenda
Posters who use longhand. Stay away from internet shorthand. (If used too much, an automatic delete will be coming)
Those who stay on topic
The d’var torah givers… You Guys Rock!
Those that show respect to other posters Especially when debating
Those who don’t care where I am, or who I am 😉
I’ll stop with those. I do agree with the previous posts about using e-mails sparingly, as well as the request not to bug the mods, asking us to edit things or to post your post already.
Personal Note, I will delete for a number of reasons. Some are obvious, and as such, I will not need to mention those. Please note, however,
YW Moderator-39’s List of Why I Delete (apart from the obvious)
- Bad Spelling and/or Internet Chat Shorthand
Facts not Accurate
Off Topic, or Getting off Topic
improper Comment to/about Another Poster
(and my favourite) The post with “nothing wrong with it” but with absolutely ZERO value! (This is quite subjective, I know, sorry)March 8, 2009 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #831932
The post with “nothing wrong with it” but with absolutely ZERO value! (This is quite subjective, I know, sorry)
then how do bad jokes get posted? even when unanimously voted corny or worse?March 8, 2009 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #831933
then how do bad jokes get posted? even when unanimously voted corny or worse?
I was actually had a debate the other day whether or not to post one squeak sent in. I decided I cannot be the sole judge as to what is or is not funny.
Besides, I don’t know it is going to be universally trashed before I let it through. Do I?March 8, 2009 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #831934
kapusta, i think i’m a “dvar torah giver” and you’re not. so ha.
39, i take back where i thought you were from 😉March 8, 2009 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #831935
Moish, if it bothered me I would not have discussed it with you.
Also, rather than mock kapusta, why not do kiruv? Encourage kapusta to give this week! Every week!March 8, 2009 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #831936
hey i don’t know what my problem is lately, but i don’t give divrei torah and i definitely don’t do kiruv. so back to being moish now. no more kiruv talk and no more divrei torah here.March 8, 2009 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #831937
yeah moish 😉
mod 39 I really am not the dvar torah type, being a she and not a he, maybe I’ll try to find something for you, but dont put me down for anything official 🙂March 8, 2009 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #831938
I won’t that is 72s job 😉March 8, 2009 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #831939
kapusta, i’m sure you know more than i do so don’t go there. don’t tell me you never learned anything in bais yaakov. girls give the best mussar shmoozes…March 8, 2009 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #831940
mod 39: then how can you not let through a different post that you don’t see a point in? couldn’t it maybe funny or thought-provoking to someone else?March 8, 2009 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #831941
moish lol, I might know more than you, but youre being a boy, and my being a girl, theyre probably completely different things. I really do but I’ll go easy on you now 🙂
how many girls ever have you a mussar shmooze? jk 🙂March 8, 2009 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #831942
mod 39: then how can you not let through a different post that you don’t see a point in? couldn’t it maybe funny or thought-provoking to someone else?
Granted. However, I do have 2 tiers shall we call them. In tier 1, I’ll just leave it for another moderator. In tier 2, I’ll just delete it outright.
Lets be clear. There is a difference between something I disagree with (which will go through) and something with is presented in such a way which (I feel) makes it valueless.
As an example, How many times do I allow someone (in page 5!) to jump into a proper discussion (e.g. Chalav Akum) and let them make a general blanket statement (e.g. There is no difference between Chalav Stam and Chalav Akum)[making up an example, this did not happen]? What is the value of allowing that in the middle of a well thought out, well articulated, civil disagreement?
Also, new topics are judged stricter, as I try to see, not only where it is, but where it will be going.March 8, 2009 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #831943
um…ok i guess. i was just asking, but i sort of see how something could be totally valueless in a conversation.
this was updated in 1 second but itll never be quite as exciting again now that the new record is -1 years 😉March 8, 2009 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #831944
Kinda stole my thunder.March 8, 2009 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #831945
mod 39, I completely agree with you on the choluv akum example, its just plain stupid to do that because no one will change what theyve been doing just because a certain poster said soMarch 8, 2009 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #831946
well that’s how girls work, i think. if you’re doing the right thing they wanna know why you’re being such a tzaddik all the time and if you’re doing something wrong they act horrified and give you a whole shmooze from their principal. it’s all fake, but they’re really good at it. guys just shut up whatever you’re doing – whether or not they’re planning on joining in.
either way, girls are good mussar machines, whether they mean it or not. and you’re a pro. so how about a dvar torah, your royal highness??March 8, 2009 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #831947
wow you’re such a toughie, 39. i guess you take your job really seriously.March 8, 2009 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #831948baal kishronParticipant
maybe this should be in the how to make ywn better but i was wondering if there is anyway possible to let a member know that their post has been denied because sometimes i will post something and maybe it is during a busy time or something and i will think it got deleted and il try to modify etc and post again whatever it just would remove some confusion i thinkMarch 8, 2009 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #831949
wow you’re such a toughie, 39. i guess you take your job really seriously.
You knew that already Moish. We spoke about it when you tried to start a post about the corrupt Juvy Judges 😉March 8, 2009 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #831950
takka. i knew that wasn’t news 😉March 8, 2009 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #831951
so wait, you can’t name any posters?
come on – i rock!March 8, 2009 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #831952
moish01: why do u always stereotype girls? you think all guys are exactly like you? girls aren’t all the same eitherMarch 8, 2009 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #831953
moish I understand where youre coming from but in real life (and maybe somewhat in the CR) I’m totally not like that (the being a tzaddik part) but it does get me very annoyed when people become so “tzaddiky” that they think everyone else is a complete rasha
I will make an effort to find a dvar torah, if nothing else than to prove that I’m normal
I could almost quote myself from the welcome mod 39 thread where I also called him a toughie, and you weren’t too happy about it
I will tell you as you put it so well, you wish. jk
