    Here, here. That nomination overtakes the last 6 months or so of nominations.

    I don’t check in on this thread too often, so am flattered to find myself part of it, however peripherally.

    As a married bubby, guess I should put one of my girls in instead? Wait, it’s been three months since the last name came up. Guess I’m patur.

    Better to be moida doing something wrong, then to do it whilst claiming it is all kosher.

    MKY, why do you ask? We haven’t even had your trial yet. Even Israeli ex-patriots are entitled to due process and “guilty until proven innocent”.

    For the very first time for year 5770, I’d like to nominate areivim’s post HERE.

    POST OF THE YEAR! Keep it up, areivim!

    For the record, the “year” in question is 2009, at the end of which we will have the chance to vote on the actual post of the year. Using the Hebrew year is a bad idea because we are probably too preoccupied at the close of the year to vote on old posts.

    BTW, if the CR ever changes the number of posts per page before the end of the “year”, many links will no longer be valid. It may be useful to post a copy of the text of the post in question.

    In any event, I hereby submit my early vote, and vote for this post as Post of the Year.

    Thank you, Joseph, for repeating your first post in this thread. I’m sure we’d mostly forgotten it by now.

    ames: Nothing to do if the mods delete or undelete anything. If the keymaster decides to go from 40 posts per page to say 50 (or 30), as has happened in the past, all links may change (although the links to the first page of a thread mostly stay the same). This is because the page numbers change.

    #1146685

    You can’t check it out unless you are the keymaster and change the number of posts per page — which HAS happened several times in the past, and DID break links.

    from the recently closed Kapparos: Chickens, Fish, or Money?

    This one made me laugh. joseph going head 2 head with MO.

    modernorthodox said,

    Just bec it’s a minhag don’t mean we hav 2 stick to it. We hav minds. G-d gave us minds 2 think & make decisions. A minhag is just a tradition. All religions hav traditions. It’s just the way they got used 2 doin things 4 various historical reasons.

    Joseph said,

    modernorthodox: The Reform agree with you!

    modernorthodox said,

    Joseph:

    I’m not surprised. Every sect of Judaism has some good points & useful ideas.

    I would never consider doing kaparos with a chicken. It is an old outdated custom. You wouldn’t see a respectful person like a Senator waving a chicken over his head! This isn’t the 15th century. Besides chickens r filthy & prob filled with germs.

    Joseph said,

    modernorthodox: Did u ever ask ur Rabbi if SHE agrees with u?

    Reform isn’t Jewish, even though sum of their adherents are personally non-practicing Jews.

    In theory what Joseph is saying makes sense. When mods delete posts or when the number of posts per page change then the page that a particular post appears on might change. For instance, the previous post by me comes out on page 6 in regular view and on page 7 if I add in the deleted posts (only mods, key masters, and charming princes such as Joseph can see these). If I were to delete a whole bunch of posts before it or change the number of posts then the page that the post appears on might change and the link will no longer be valid.

    Edit: After deleting about 25 posts, the page 6 link no longer works.

    #1146688

    good point, why NOT?

    If the number of posts per page changes (or if posts are deleted) the post number stays the same but the page number does not. The links that you get when clicking on the # under a post includes the page number and post number. If the post is no longer on that particular page than the post number part of the link that takes you to the particular post within the page is useless.

    This post was nominated by an anonymous lurker:

    haifagirl

    I was told by the esrog dealer I usually go to that the more bumps it has the more beautiful it is. I told her if she had bumps she wouldn’t be beautiful. But then again, she’s not an esrog.

    I recently saw some that were about twice as large as what I’m used to. I’m not sure what kind they were.

    Last chance, folks…. only 2 more weeks until nominations are closed.

    And based on a random guess I am making about the number of voters left to cast votes, you can probably take the grand prize if you just vote for one of your own posts ._.

    Last day for posts to be eligible for nomination as “Post of the Year”, folks.

    #1146700

    The following nominee isn’t a light-hearted or funny post like many (most?) of the others here are, and it’s also somewhat lengthly, but it’s well worth your reading time.

    Sounds like an interesting Jack and Jill interpretation; a murder-suicide, perhaps?
