    Hey, eclipse, have you realized that the CR is growing younger and younger??? Do you think it’s got something to do with the chachma that comes with age? Y’know I’ve been reading the CR for about a year, but, only recently logged in. I think that a lot of sensible and smart people left(yeah, OF COURSE you’re included!). Any idea why?….

    Eclipse: Ha, ha!! LOL. But,I doubt they were ready to give up their fun just because of YOU!!

    Seriously, now, do you think there’s a reason why so many grownups left? I think we can use more of the mature and smart posts there used to be. Don’t you think?

    I have learned in my little life, that often no answer is the best answer,’cause whatever you say will offend someone else,so…maybe throw your question out there in a new thread?

    I was just wondering what YOU thought about this, because you seem to be a sensible person. I was curious if you thought what I did, and now I think I guessed what your opinion in this matter is. Oh, and I’m in no mood for starting a thread on this. I think you know why, doncha’?

    No way! Chas Vesholom. (Especially not NOW when your leaving…)

    On the contrary. Anyway, I wasn’t trying to offend you, nor anybody else. I was just curious. Guess I’ll keep my mouth shut in the future:| (See? I zipped it already…)

    observanteen,your question wasn’t offensive(where did the some of the older posters go),just the answer would have to offend :

    a.the older WISE posters still here

    b.the younger posters whose contributions you may not be commending

    c.whomever the “defectors” are defecting FROM!

    Eclipse, your cyber friends truly care for you. I can only imagine how much your “reality” friends who truly know you must feel about you. YOU are a very special person who has faced many challenges. But as you know, Hashem does not test us with nisyonos that we can’t handle (although at times it does not seem like we can’t). WE are ALWAYS here for you if you ever need a boost of chizuk or if you ever hear a voice in your ear telling you that someone else does, you might just pop in now and then to give someone else a boost. It works both ways you know.

    There is no way to measure how much good you have accomplished with your kind words, your advice and your amazing sense of humor. Although we don’t realize it at the time, there is a purpose and a reason for everything we do, even finding our way to the internet and cyber-space. If there is one person in particular that you have helped through your own tzoris, your own story, or your amazing humor you have accomplished more than you had started out to, because you probably came here for the fun of it or just looking for chizuk for yourself. And yet, you leave with a title, er sub-title. In addition, I personally would like to give you another “screen name” because although you came to us as “eclipse” you really brought us “sunshine” and always brightened each day.

    To say that you will be missed is an understatement as you are well aware of our campaign to bring you back when you were rudely chased into hiding. But we are so happy for you that you are ready to “conquer the real world” and have no time for us any more. Hatzlocha Rabba b’chol Maaseh Yadayech”. May you have much Hatzlocha in all you do.

    …invite all female posters to the chanukas habayis or (chanukas ha’shack?)

    …and then maybe invite some male posters to help them park their cars…

    Shticky Guy–LOL!

    Health-a book for young adults(1992 or 1993)

    I was not so happy with the editing so I have never kept a copy of it around for too long–it makes me nervous!OUT OF PRINT NOW

    I hope to write a book for “old” adults one day….when I have time to put it all together.

    Eclipse: thanks! You were getting me really worried…

    I know I told you already but, I want to say it just once more: I’ll really miss you!!! Also, am I invited to the chanukas habayis, or is it for grownups only? If so, can you make an exception with me??? Please? I’d LOVE to meet you in person!!! In any case, good luck with your new home and lots of luck in life!!!

    observanteen,if you’re old enough to type,you’re old enough to come!

    Eclipse:

    I am sorry you are still taking Yochie’s mean and obnoxious comment seriously.

    That thread seems to have disappeared, so we won’t discuss it here.

    Eclipse: Look at this thread here. Everybody likes you, and thinks you are smart, funny, interesting, intellectual, honest, and a good online friend. We are sorry you are leaving, and sorry you have a bad taste from on rude poster. Please forget him.

    Is this for real? I’m still hoping you’ll change your mind… This is late in coming, but I’ll be sorry not to see your name popping up here. Your posts are (were?) always very sincere, and have genuine caring. And if I were to leave the CR, I highly doubt I would generate a thread of 80+ posts, and that says a lot. Hatzlacha with everything, and please come back once in a while.

    And if I can ask a favor; if you end up in contact with any of my relatives, is it possible to keep this CR thing quiet?

    i never read the one negative post, but isn’t there something that if all members of beis din agree unanimously, don’t go by that. but if even have 1 dissenter, rule goes by the majority.

    even mordechai hatzadik wasn’t accepted and loved by all of the yehudim.

    good luck in everything, and may you one day be zocheh to find your zivug and true shalom bayis!

    Its always good to leave on a high, so let your kids know how much you are loved and respected, let them know how much you are admired and appreciated, nah….it’s enough just knowing for yourself. I hope your heart is full and fortified!

    Shalom Chaveira! Just keep putting one foot in front of another and eventually you will get where you were heading. 🙂

    Gut shabbos.

    I tried defending you on the other thread, but this is just not nice.

    Please tell me that I misunderstood you.

    Daas Yochid -That was your mistake. I tried posting a menchlich response to your post, but I guess the mods didn’t like the back and forth and closed the topic. There is a big difference between the generation growing up now and my generation when we were younger.
