Here, here. That nomination overtakes the last 6 months or so of nominations.August 20, 2009 4:43 pm at 4:43 pm #1146668
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.August 26, 2009 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1146669

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”.September 3, 2009 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1146676September 3, 2009 11:47 pm at 11:47 pm #1146677

I nominate your post as Post of The Year AND as the official Coffee Room Intro Post for New Comers- very well written 🙂September 29, 2009 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #1146679
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!September 29, 2009 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #1146680
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.September 29, 2009 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #1146681
That was just an attempt to make someone feel good.September 29, 2009 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1146682
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.September 29, 2009 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #1146683
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.September 30, 2009 2:05 am at 2:05 am #1146684
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.October 1, 2009 1:11 am at 1:11 am #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.October 1, 2009 1:17 am at 1:17 am #1146686
from the recently closed Kapparos: Chickens, Fish, or Money?
This one made me laugh. joseph going head 2 head with MO.
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.
modernorthodox: The Reform agree with you!
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.
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.October 1, 2009 1:52 am at 1:52 am #1146687
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.October 1, 2009 1:57 am at 1:57 am #1146688

good point, why NOT?October 1, 2009 2:07 am at 2:07 am #1146689
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.October 2, 2009 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #1146691
This post was nominated by an anonymous lurker:
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.October 5, 2009 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #1146692

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 ._.December 21, 2009 6:14 am at 6:14 am #1146695

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.
