I was quite surprised to see a thread from the CR printed in the Country Yossi magazine – chanukka issue. I looked with excitement and a bit of fear to see if any posts were from me. And my first reaction was ‘whooo! at least i didnt post on that thread!’December 21, 2011 4:20 pm at 4:20 pm #866639mytakeMember
Which thread was published?December 21, 2011 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #866640Shticky GuyParticipant
I’m confused. What would you be embarrassed to appear there that you were happy to post here in the first place? Its not as if you use your real name. Do you?December 21, 2011 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #866641ZeesKiteParticipant
Could anyone indicate which thread?December 21, 2011 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #866642
I don’t care what they write about me, as long as they spell my name right.December 21, 2011 4:55 pm at 4:55 pm #866643nitpickerParticipant
I also was surprised and disturbed.
when I speak to someone or write something, I naturally take into account the person or audience I am addressing. While it true that these posts are open to the public, I am sure that a feel for the particular venue affected my choices of what to discuss, as well as the tone of voice and wording. I am not from the most frequent posters and I will be posting even less often now.December 21, 2011 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #866644ZeesKiteParticipant
“..and I will be posting even less often now”
So, you’re threatening us? I’ll have to call CR Threat Bureau, Lt. Jothar.December 21, 2011 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #866645✡onegoal™Participant
Can someone please tell us which thread it was?December 21, 2011 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm #866646
It was probably the mechalel shabbos troll thread. 🙂
This is what I’ve been saying all along- the cozy atmosphere here is a mirage. Between stalkers/harassers,trolls, and now the thread appearing in print, one really needs to be careful here. I find it a good thing, in that the knowledge that the bittul zman may end up in print may cut down on troll posts. Furthermore, it might bring in fresh blood into the CR, creating more invigorating discussions and diluting the trolls.December 21, 2011 6:43 pm at 6:43 pm #866647
it was the ‘colored shirts’ thread.
Shticky Guy: When i post here, there is a certain sense of security/naivety (is there such a word?) about who would be reading your post. In a sense, i look at these posts as letters written but never sent. I’m probably not making much sense, but i’m sure you get the gist.December 21, 2011 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #866648

Man, I didn’t even have anything clever in that thread. Couldn’t he have picked the thread about women not being jewish? Or my retards thread?December 21, 2011 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #866649soliekMember

Could they have done it without permission from YW? It says © on the bottom of the page.December 28, 2011 3:20 am at 3:20 am #866668
Lifelines article about a kolle guy and his inetrnet addiction. YWN made a prominent appearance. He then stopped going on the internet and it make a big difference.April 1, 2012 3:52 am at 3:52 am #866669avhabenParticipant
This months Country Yossi magazine honored by thread “Are Birthday Celebrations UnJewish” with running it in the monthly.April 9, 2012 2:41 am at 2:41 am #866670gefenParticipant
avhaben – I just saw it today and i’m in it!! woohoo! We are famous. Wolf, HaLeivi, Daas Yochid, Sam4321, Writersoul, Toi, Gabi, Think first, Derech HaMelech, 147 and others – let’s celebrate.
Looking back at the posts written here 3 months ago, I see that some ppl are upset that it showed up in Country Yossi. Why? You’re writing on a public forum, you are anonymous anyway. Besides you should be careful of what you write anyway.April 9, 2012 9:05 am at 9:05 am #866671Think firstMember
That’s really cool avhaben, I gotta check it out. Thanks for sharing.April 9, 2012 2:05 pm at 2:05 pm #866672oomisParticipant
If someone is upset it might be because even though we are posting anonymously on a public forum, we expect it to be public ONLY on that forum. There are people who read Country Yossi who might NOT be in the CR, so it might feel to some like an invasion of privacy of sorts. Bottom line, don’t post anything you would be ashamed of.April 9, 2012 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #866673gefenParticipant
oomis- Right. The last sentences of your post and my previous post should say it all.
