    Why is there so much name calling going on in the CR? And people wonder why moshiach isn’t here!

    Like seriously!

    Baruch HaShem I have stopped over the past few months making digs at posters (even though I so wanted to!)

    Sorry if I sound like I’m on a high horse but this name calling and digs sound immature!

    (Now I’ll get off my soapbox)

    My post-inaugural resolution was to retire the “Trumpkopf” nomenclature (albeit he was not a regular CR poster) and with one or two reversions, have kept my resolution. Its sometimes difficult to separate the commentary from the commentator, especially when the post is explicitly designed to troll and is either so patently false, vacuous or inappropriate, you don’t even want to dignify it with a response.
    An no, your never on a “high horse” by advocating civility, although those of us riding around on a kleyn ferd may not always take it that way.

    Name calling is a last resort for some Coffee Roomers. When they realise they are wrong or mistaken they use names.
    So if someone calls you a name, you can pat yourself on the back, knowing you made a good point and just move on.

    If it was me, I apologize. I did not intend to call another person by any derogatory name.

    Name-calling is the first resort for some Coffee Roomers. I wear those names proudly, so, please, keep it up.

    Wolf,

    It doesn’t make a difference the posters ON BOTH SIDES like to use the other person’s screen name and make a joke about it, I have done it in the past with Gadolhadorah, and others but I realized it made me sound babyish

    #1948937

    I often will ‘repair’ screennames that seem to have been misspelled.

    People turn into monsters when they’re anonymous.
    I think I speak for most of us when I admit that I have said things online which I regret and never would have said in person (especially to @jackk, I am sorry 😔).
    As G-D fearing jews, we need to constantly keep ourselves in check and remember the One who is not fooled by screen names.

    “I have done it in the past……but I realized it made me sound babyish…”
    Nah….just a tad immature. After all, he whose name shall not be mentioned never engaged in personal name-calling or ad hominem attacks on those who disagreed with him (e.g. the distinguished senior Senator from the Commonwealth of Kentucky had more chins than brains…”

    Thank you, MadeAliyah, for an excellent reminder (and one of the best comments I’ve read here).

    MadeAliyah,
    This is a post that befits a Yid that lives in the Palace of the King.
    In the month of Adar, we should also merit to understand and live by the lesson of the half a shekel donated by every Jew. That includes me.

    @Gadolhadorah

    I don’t think even the mods know anything about us beyond our IP and Email addresses.

    Am I right Mod-29?

    Thank you for helping me understand why Haman said שקלך קודם לשקלי and how it tied into מפוזר ומפורד

    Am I right Mod-29?

    I was thinking about this question because on the surface the answer is yes. We really don’t have more info than that. On the other hand, in terms of knowing you, we do see the posts that get deleted.

    “I don’t think even the mods know anything about us beyond our IP and Email addresses”
    I have heard from an adom gadol that the CR Mods (and certain posters) are extremely skilled in Gematria. For example, one of our most esteemed and chashuvah posters adopted the name of the author of the sefer The Baraita of the 32 Rules back in 200 CE (Reb Eliezer). This text (which is sold out on Amazon) enumerated 32 guidelines to be used by meforshim of Tanach. No.29 of 32 explained how through the use of gematria, one could discern much about a social media poster simply by studying the numeric components of his IP address.
