How many of the old posters are still on here from when i used to post?
(Not the really really old posters. More like middle aged poster 😉
Anyone from a few months ago still on?December 20, 2009 10:59 am at 10:59 am #672196
Believe it or not- I’m still alive!!!
I could hardly believe I’m posting something- its been ages since I was here properly…
Remember me?December 20, 2009 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #672197PhyllisMember
I am quite an old timer here too, though I am in and out.December 20, 2009 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #672198mazal77Participant
hey aussieboy, haven’t read from you in a while, and could to see you back in the CR. I am still around, but doing more lurking. I just haven’t been posting as much. I rather read, unless something interesting turns up and just have to reply, like this thread. But it does seem like there are many new members and alot of the old times have drifted off. I feel the CR has kind of changed. So if your reading, just let us know your around.December 20, 2009 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #672199smartcookieMember

I’m an old lurker and I miss feivel’s stuffDecember 21, 2009 5:59 am at 5:59 am #672203yoshiMember
I’m an AK, but not sure how long the Coffee Room has been around, so I guess I’m a middle ager 🙂
Question is, anyone know who the First posters were?December 21, 2009 6:08 am at 6:08 am #672204
Where is Joseph?December 21, 2009 6:13 am at 6:13 am #672205bein_hasdorimParticipant

I guess I’m middle aged too!December 22, 2009 3:48 am at 3:48 am #672206yoshiMember
Maybe he got a promotion at the YWN 😉December 23, 2009 12:39 pm at 12:39 pm #672207

Maybe the YWeditors can help?December 23, 2009 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #672211smartcookieMember
Yeah, Nameless. Guess they got bored of our company.
Anyway, some of them are probably posting under a different name.December 23, 2009 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #672212
I dont think they got bored! lol
They probably are still around under other names, as you say.December 23, 2009 4:20 pm at 4:20 pm #672213workingMember
I thought you are not allowed to have a few usernames?? I am confused! I have also wondered were they all went…. It became quite boring the last few weeks over hereDecember 23, 2009 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #672214YW Moderator-80Member
You are NOT allowed to have more than one user name. However the moderators are pretty lenient about this generally as long as you simply switch from one to another and don’t go back and forth, especially during the same period of time.
Some of the ex-posters probably got bored, some left because they felt they were developing an addiction, some who consistently were getting their posts edited or deleted (for reasons I won’t go into) got frustrated and gave up.December 23, 2009 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #672215
Charedim Kol Yisroel was quite a asset to the site, I must say. He was clever, polite and thorough. Sammygol was hillarious and sharp. Then there was a poster named Yossi Brisuk, Midwesterner and ofcourse our resident lefty liberal, ILLINI.
I also recall Sarah.
Many of these bloggers are missing. Some cos they wer challenging, and others because they wre very qualified…..December 23, 2009 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #672216workingMember
I miss sqeak, Jphone, asdfgh, ames and another few which i cant recall their names at this moment.December 23, 2009 6:59 pm at 6:59 pm #672217YW Moderator-80MemberDecember 23, 2009 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #672218
working- his name was noitallmr!!!December 23, 2009 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #672219
There may also be people who stopped posting because something obnoxious was said to them, and they were not able to let it roll off. Many people are timid about posting, and when they finally get up the courage and are insulted, they go back into lurker mode.December 23, 2009 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #672220
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane…
jent1150, rabbiofberlin, illini07, charlie brown, feivel, Curious, beacon, Just Smile, Brooklyn19, cokenotpepsi, ames, cherybim, jphone, Mayan_Dvash, Bowzer, lgbg, NeveAliza, Shadow, Just ME, Feif Un, Areivimzehlazeh, Jax, mepal, kapusta, Goldieloxx, JayMatt19, mdlevine, Joseph, Will Hill, Hill of Beans, ujm, THE BIG ONE, Mezonos MavenDecember 23, 2009 8:40 pm at 8:40 pm #672221
YW Moderator-42- Um, exactly why did I not qualify???December 23, 2009 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #672222NY MomMember
Well, I have not been around so long, but I do recognize many of the names you listed, Mod 42.
We all have to remember that pple have lives outside of the CR and change happens. Sometimes sad, but change can be good, too. 🙂December 23, 2009 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #672223JotharMember
I still lurk, but I post more rarely.December 23, 2009 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm #672224
wow mod42 youve been around for a while.. i think i came pretty soon after brooklyn19 got exposed and left so most of those names were before my timeDecember 24, 2009 1:59 am at 1:59 am #672225
noitallmr, I did not include you (or squeak) because you have posted recently. I was mentioning the old timers who are no longer around.
Some more names… Prince Charming, 000646, anonymisss, xoxo, WolfishMusings, shkoyach, whatshaiches, Doc, bugnot, bugyes, Bogen, mamashtakah, mosherose

today is my one year anniversary in the cr! ;0)December 24, 2009 6:41 am at 6:41 am #672230
You have their contact details, why don’t you inquire as to why they just left?December 24, 2009 8:10 am at 8:10 am #672231
A few others that come to mind;
abimeleibt, Hakatan,MDshwecks,Shazam, sayitlikeitis,stan the man, abigezint.December 24, 2009 2:17 pm at 2:17 pm #672232
People have babies, get new jobs, change schedules, have kids who need the computer, etc. I am only on-line when no one else in my family needs to be, or if I have some free time in-between things I am doing (i.e. babysitting my granddaughter, while she naps, or doing laundry, etc.). There are a myriad of reasons why people may or may not be posting these days. It’s their prerogative, either way.December 24, 2009 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #672233AnonymousInactive
Wow – Mod 42 – you sure are bringing back memories of the old days… :}December 31, 2009 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #672234SJSinNYCMember
I guess I’m not an old timer 🙂
I had a baby and got busy. Plus, I got hooked on imamother.com which is much less moderated. Its not that I want to say anything wrong, it just makes me FEEL like I can express myself better.
I’ll probably start getting back in now…December 31, 2009 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #672235A600KiloBearParticipant
I come back only when time permits or when there is a really good discussion. Right now, due to legal holidays and impossible weather, time permits. Next week that changes except for motzoei Shabbos bc Shabbos ends so early here.December 31, 2009 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #672236mom12Participant
Impossible weather in Eretz Hakodesh?
If I’m not mistaken thats where u hail from..
Actually thats the reason I have more time to hang around on-line-
here it is snowing and quite difficult to push a stroller..
Time to cook dinner..
C U later….December 31, 2009 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #672237A600KiloBearParticipant
Ukraine here – same time zone as EY but way north and therefore climate more like NY.December 31, 2009 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #672238mom12Participant
