Since the petition successfully got DY unblocked, lets try another one:
We, the undersigned, request that real-brisker’s original account be unblocked as he has been requesting for oh so long.
(He provides the CR with anti-trolling services free of charge, so it’s the least he deserves for services rendered.)January 10, 2012 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #843031
Once we’re dealing with old accounts, how about taking away that horrible subtitle from RuffRuff?January 10, 2012 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #843032
choc – Thanks, lolJanuary 10, 2012 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #843033
I second the motion. He seems like a good guy.January 10, 2012 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #843034
This thread should be called “Petition to get real real-brisker account unblocked”… ?
I second it. He’s a good guy. But will that not mean this newer account will be blocked? He cant have 2, especially with such similar names???January 10, 2012 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #843035
Thanks WIY, HaLeiVi – I agree with you.January 10, 2012 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #843036
HaLeivi: I was going to make a start on the Haleivi and ruffruffs if this petition proved successful and financially rewarding.January 10, 2012 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #843037
nuuu? Where is everyone.
We want 1000 signitures by midnight.
(I get $10 per sig.)January 10, 2012 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #843038
Please accept my petit to unblock real-brisker.
Oh, wait, it seems he was unblocked.
Okay, well, change my petit to have him blocked. The streets were much safer with him blocked..lol

BT Guy – My original acct.January 10, 2012 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #843040
choc – How do I send the $$?January 11, 2012 3:29 am at 3:29 am #843041
Does it really matter if any particular account is blocked? In an account is blocked anyone create another account, and if that account gets blocked there’s always the oppertunity to create another one. The only losers are the stalkers.January 11, 2012 3:41 am at 3:41 am #843042
Dude, why is your screen name Joseph?January 11, 2012 4:01 am at 4:01 am #843043
Joseph – Thats not the way the CR works here.January 11, 2012 4:16 am at 4:16 am #843044
Dude, why is your screen name Joseph?
If the mods wanted you to know, they wouldn’t have deleted the thread that discusses this very issue.January 11, 2012 4:21 am at 4:21 am #843045
Okay, but why would you want to have Joseph as a screen name? (Or are you saying that the mods aren’t giving you any choice…?)January 11, 2012 4:50 am at 4:50 am #843046
Joseph – Thats not the way the CR works here.
OK, I’ll explain how the CR works. If a user gets blocked they are blocked at the cookie level and are told to contact a moderator. As you know contacting a moderator is no trivial matter. Officially (although there are reports that it isn’t so) each moderator has an email address based on their number but the only way to find this out is by browsing a site that you can’t browse. Even if you manage to know how to contact the moderators you still don’t know which moderator to contact and moderators seldomly get involved with matters involving other moderators, leaving the best solution to be deleting the cookie (or all cookies if you don’t know how to delete a single cookie, losing preferances for countless sites in the process) and creating a new account.
This may not be what the designers intended but it is how it works.
Okay, but why would you want to have Joseph as a screen name? (Or are you saying that the mods aren’t giving you any choice…?)
If a mod gives me permission to answer that then I will.January 11, 2012 5:53 am at 5:53 am #843047
… that’s not how it works- you can ban by IP address.January 11, 2012 8:25 am at 8:25 am #843048
Joseph: I think what is disturbing real-brisker is a black mark on his record, not that he needs that account in particular.January 11, 2012 8:55 am at 8:55 am #843049
I believe that Joseph / bezalel is a mod who keeps blocking and unblocking himself. I have no clue why and when he uses this controversial screen name, but mods can do what they want.January 11, 2012 11:54 am at 11:54 am #843050
Add my name to the petition (I would be an ingrate not to).January 11, 2012 2:05 pm at 2:05 pm #843051
Well, in that case, sign me up to have your original account unblocked!January 11, 2012 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #843052
real-brisker account still blocked.
time for strong-arm tactics. ideas, anyoneJanuary 11, 2012 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #843053
You had an idea in the other thread, which I can’t participate in, because I promised.January 11, 2012 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #843054
Strong-arm tactics would include pushups, weights, isometric stuff..etc.
But perhaps if real-brisker writes a letter stating how he understands why that account was blocked and will not repeat that/those things again, they will unblock that account.
We have all heard countless awesome stories of tshuva, for truly great offenses, where any record of that offense after sincere tshuva, was deleted, as though it never happened. The slate is clean. Such is the Jewish way!
If rb is sincere in what he says, maybe they will open the account. And considering he still is an active poster under this name, what would the harm be to let him have back that name?January 11, 2012 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #843055
choc – Thanks for all the efforts. I don’t know why they are being so tuff.January 11, 2012 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #843056
Thank you all the above signers. DY – What was choc`s ideas?January 11, 2012 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm #843057
Joseph – I think that is the reason why they unlinked the login to the main page from the CR login. It used to be if one got blocked, they were able to logout from the main page (cause the block is only on the CR) and then, be able to login to the CR. Now if one gets blocked, they can no longer logout through the mainpage, cause they are seperate logins.January 11, 2012 7:59 pm at 7:59 pm #843058
BT Guy – I don’t think there is any reason why my account was blocked. It was during the phase when random members were being suspected of being Joseph, and it would come along with a blockage. I asked then to unblock, but to no avail. So I just informed them that if it womt be unblockled I will just open a new account. And so I did, and here I am posting with it.January 11, 2012 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #843059January 11, 2012 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #843060
I’m kidding, BTW.January 11, 2012 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #843061
DY: of course you’re kidding. You promised to be on your best behaviour.January 11, 2012 10:01 pm at 10:01 pm #843062
… that’s not how it works- you can ban by IP address.
They don’t.January 11, 2012 10:04 pm at 10:04 pm #843063
Just a thought … maybe nobody knows which moderator blocked you and, as J/B said, no other moderator will get involved.
Also, have you told them the username on that account?January 11, 2012 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #843064
DY – You can do it if we all turn ourselves into DY’s. 🙂January 12, 2012 12:26 am at 12:26 am #843065
DY – I don’t think thats true. By Health, ca asked why he is blocked, a moderator (obviously not the one that blocked him) replied, “I don’t know” and unblocked him.January 12, 2012 2:36 am at 2:36 am #843067
DY – You can do it if we all turn ourselves into DY’s. 🙂
Then I wouldn’t have to do anything!
Health, by the way, was “on time out”, so it was intended to be temporary.
Do the moderators know your old user name?January 12, 2012 4:31 am at 4:31 am #843068
DY – I am refering to the previous round 🙂 Health was blocked. I don’t know if they know it. I can tell them, but I don’t want them to post it up, because it can give away my identification.January 12, 2012 5:10 am at 5:10 am #843069
MODS – IS THERE ANY REASON WHY WE ARE ALL BEING INGORED?
Ok, ok. Give me a link to the old username, and I’ll unblock it.January 12, 2012 6:46 am at 6:46 am #843071
And what about the RuffRuff subtitle!?January 12, 2012 7:09 am at 7:09 am #843072
DY -“Health, by the way, was “on time out”, so it was intended to be temporary.”
I have no idea what the intention was, but at first the subscript said “time out” & then it said “blocked”.
I don’t think there was a real difference as far as blocking goes – I just think some Mod was trying to be funny and posted “time out”.January 12, 2012 2:27 pm at 2:27 pm #843073
Thank you very much mod! I appreciate it greatly.January 12, 2012 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #843074
I understand better now. Thank you for explaining.
Has a moderator told you they will not open it up again? Perhaps there is a glitch in the system.
Any response from any moderator about your concern?January 12, 2012 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm #843075
Mod – Can we have ruffruff subtitle switched also?January 12, 2012 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #843076
The news today, January 12th, reads that a US aircraft carrier strike group has moved into the Arabian Sea. Another one is on the way. And that the US denies any link to Iran’s threat to block the Strait of Hormuz – the world’s most important oil shipping lane. So can we get on with other important business and get real-brisker’s old account unblocked?
: )January 12, 2012 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #843077
BT Guy – Thanks for your efforts, they did it this morning. Look at my SN you will be able to tell from the subtitle.January 12, 2012 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #843078
Mazel Tov, r-b!January 12, 2012 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #843079
DY – Boruch Tiheye. Do you like the sub?January 12, 2012 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #843080
Do you like the sub
I preferred “That’s Brisk, Baby”.
I assume you decide which one to use depending on if you’re milchig or fleishig.January 13, 2012 7:12 am at 7:12 am #843081
Oh wow. It looks like iced tea has come back into fashion after a hundred year sleep. Which mod was it that kissed you?
