    Using this format is Chukas Hagoyim, right? It’s from the King James translation. No one would ever speak in the “thou shalt not” or “thou shall” form nowadays otherwise. I actually think speaking (maybe you could be Mechalek for posting but I don’t hear that) like that is an Issur D’oraisa.

    Thou shalt not post under multiple screen names.

    Syag: Shakespeare spoke in old English and certainly parts of it are still used because of him, but the “thou shalt not” form comes from the ten commandments in the King James bible. At least, that’s where common usage comes from. I’m sure he (and by he I mean whoever translated it; James just financed it, not wrote it) didn’t invent the form. He’s just the reason it’s popular today, which is all Chukas Hagoyim should care about.

    Just to be clear, I was 100% serious when I mentioned the Chukas Hagoyim issue. I actually think that it’s an Issur D’oraisa.

    Mod-42 and all other heilige mods.

    Can I make a crazy request? Technically it is now Ereve Tisha Baav. Unfortunately there is a tendency for many topics to get heated and people either get insulted and offended which brings machlokes and sinah or some loshon hora slips by modding. Although this thingust be avoided at all times I think it must be avoided at all costs the day before Tisha baav (or 2 days if you want to nit pick). Maybe take it under consideration to close the coffeeroom until after Tisha Baav, or go into hyper modding mode (much harder!) where you basically make sure all comments are rated g for general audiences or e for everyone. I hope you can honor at least one of my requests although in honesty its best for everyone to take the day off. Maybe post a message on the top that you are taking the day off to prepare for Tisha baav. Theres plenty to do between taking a look at eicha, the kinnos, or reading up on the churbon Bayis as well as other churbanos that have happened over the centuries of our bitter galus.

    I thank you in advance and sincerely wish that this tisha baav will be a Yom Tov where all Jews will be united in praising Hashem and doing His will with a complete heart.

    Kozov: I highly doubt any Jews spoke English as their native language at the time. They were all expelled from the country. I don’t think there were any Jewish English translations until the 20th century. But I’m no expert in that. I’d have to look it up.

    Though shall not cause an interesting (pronounced controversial) thread to become [closed]…

    Sam2:

    “Using this format is Chukas Hagoyim, right? It’s from the King James translation. No one would ever speak in the “thou shalt not” or “thou shall” form nowadays otherwise. I actually think speaking (maybe you could be Mechalek for posting but I don’t hear that) like that is an Issur D’oraisa.”

    Why is it different from using any other phrase made by goyim (ie, whats up, that rocks, etc)? Heck, the whole English language was made up goyim – does that mean it’s an issur di’Oraysa to speak English?

    thou should use tau instead of pi pi is wrong

    there is a theorum going around that one should use tau instead of pi

    tau is a cute little symbol that looks like the greek numeral t

    tau= 6.28318530717958647692528676655900576839433879875021

    16419498891846156328125724179972560696506842341359

    64296173026564613294187689219101164463450718816256

    google search it

    and you will never use pi again

    Toi: And a tosfos in sukkah too, so what? The gemara and the tosfos there make it very clear that these are approximations. In fact, they use much rougher approximations than most mathematicians do.

    Ummm… you guys can start a tau thread. We’re supposed to talk about the ten crommandments. (Which apparently there are more than ten.)

    Thou shalt not post a post about tau.

    Thou shalt no post thou shalt.

    Sam2 – according to your logic the Torah is over on chukkas hagoy by saying yegar sahadusoh

    Pcoz: That’s not a religious phrase. “Thou shalt not” is a phrase that came into common usage because it was borrowed from the King James Bible. Therefore, using it for any purpose is an Issur D’Oraisa of Chukas Hagoyim. I don’t see why people are having such a problem with this, other than the fact that they never thought of that before. It’s fairly simple though.

    According to Rb Mordechai Gifter z”l judaism is not a religion – religious connotes conformity – keeping the Torah is not conformation to a set of rules. It is a logical mode of life. Therefore the Torah is not scared of information which is derived from the vernacular of different times and places.

    Fair enough. Still, what you’re saying seems pretty extreme… have you ever asked a Rov about it?

    Thou shalt not disrespect another member by altering their name which they have chosen i.e. if the persons user name is Professor Jorgenson don’t call him jorgy porgy because you disagree with his views.
