Today I went digging into some rubbish.
No, not garbage, old threads.
So I came upon some threads 2years old that I remember were up when I first came.
They were about how many people read the CR and quote opinions from it in conversations and say it as their own.
I recall one user wrote he or she was on a bus/subway with people from her community, a few of which were having a heated discussion about something that happened to be a popular and hot thread that week. The user listened as they said things like “I heard..” or “I think..” or “My friend says…” followed by direct things from the CR, some of even her/his own opinion. The user joked in the CR saying that she wanted to ask the people if they visit here or not….
Does this stuff really happen? Can people quote the CR like others quote Harry Potter or Mishna….
True, thousands of people read without posting, but this?????December 4, 2013 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #991345

Lot of people like me read without ever posting. That’s why no one knows that I’m here. (where’s here anyway?)December 4, 2013 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #991347

I only do that if a story/situation comes up. I won’t quote people’s opinions unless they a) are basically mine as well or b) belong to people I actually know in real life.December 4, 2013 10:56 pm at 10:56 pm #991351SaysMeMember

When people talk to CR posters whom they know in “real life”, they sometimes quote.December 5, 2013 1:08 am at 1:08 am #991354
I was blocked a few times. The first time was for saying to stone a chazzan with esrogim for singing too long, or something like that.December 5, 2013 1:45 am at 1:45 am #991355December 5, 2013 2:19 am at 2:19 am #991356HaLeiViParticipant

I mean people who don’t even post, imagine your on the bus listening to a bunch of people talking and a few say “well my sister told me she….” tgen they say word for word what you wrote, and you dont even KNOW the person!December 5, 2013 2:05 pm at 2:05 pm #991360
I was blocked a few more times by 80 a couple years ago. I don’t completely remember why.
But the esrog one will always be my fave. It was right around the big xmas snowstorm in 2010December 5, 2013 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #991361December 5, 2013 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #991362Bookworm120Participant
I can’t say I know the CR like the back of my hand, but I’ve shared a few inspirational bits and pieces from what I’ve read here. 🙂
I often wonder, are we famous? Like, will I ever be sitting on a bus in NY and overhear someone say, “Well, then this user Bookworm120 said….”
I have to remember, this is a public forum, and everything I say is read by plenty of silent readers. Hello, silent readers! Not to sound creepy, but I know you’re out there!December 5, 2013 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #991363🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
I hear people quote CR stuff. I have a friend with a child who has social difficulties. She will quote CR conversations in the name of friends to initiate conversation with peers. I wasn’t so sure it was a bad idea. Unless she is specifically remembering the apikorsus.December 5, 2013 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #991364🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
Hey, Kapusta! Happy Chanukah!December 5, 2013 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #991365

I have never read an opinion here that was worthy of being related in real life.December 5, 2013 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm #991368
Your loss. You have much to learn from my intelligent, intellectual “writings”.December 5, 2013 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #991369☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Need seminary help, that was some compliment, mentioning me in the same sentence as popa.
Veltz Meshugener, I felt the same way, until I read your post.December 5, 2013 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #991370miritchkaMember
Guilty as charged! Except that i only quote opinions on questions i’ve asked and only if i happen to come across that topic irl.December 5, 2013 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #991371twistedParticipant
Whaaat? Isn’t the CR ‘real life’?December 5, 2013 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #991372👑RebYidd23Participant
It is a part of life.December 6, 2013 12:32 am at 12:32 am #991373
Big welcome back to Kapusta!!December 6, 2013 10:38 am at 10:38 am #991374
Goq….wasn’t there something called a welcome wagon that seems to have been deserted? It seems so long ago…..or maybe that was a dream…
