    I think most people here are repectful and thanful to the others when someone helps them. For those who aren’t let’s be dan them lkaf zchus. It happens quite often that someone posts something for the benefit of another and then the other person misses the post and never saw the response or wasn’t online for the next few days…. for the most part I’m pretty impressed with peoples middos here.

    I find the CR a very lovely place to visit. I have visited another similar website where people are uncredibly nasty to those who are not exactly like themselves. Many are not interested in an exchange of ideas but rather just “shooting the messenger”. I find the CR to be a genteel (not gentile) oasis and I have learned so much from all of you. I only wish that I had the opportunity to meet many of you in person – over a real cuppa joe – and a little nosh of course.

    That’s quite an observation.

    This coffee room is a wonderful oasis of information, ideas, enormous help for those who seek it, or even to exchange recipes etc…

    Would like to thank aries and oomis1105 for their sound advise and hakaros hatov….

    #705042

    There is always rooom to improve in Hakaras Hatov – I didn’t think it was such a big deal what we did but this really made my day, thank you so much for making me feel I have contributed to the CR.

    I agree with Minyan Gal; the CR is one of the more respectful places on the web (thanks to the Mods, I might add).

    And Oomis, I’d taek you up on the offer, but I’m fleshigs (polite way of ducking out, don’t you think?)

    Now that I think of my choice of “fleshig”, its more true than I realize. When it comes down to it, I (like all of us) are “odom gashmi” (poeple of flesh and blood) so certain dividers are necessary to maintain the kashrus we so value.

    OTOH, I think you, SJS, Blinky, Minyan Gal (those are the 1st that come to mind) would have a blast, should you find yourselves face-to-face in the real world!

    In the meantime, I’ll try to convince Squeek to host a blow-out kiddush…!

    #705045

    kashrus did you mean to imply Tznius ??

    Yashrus is a better word, as we all know you can be within the confines of “tznius” and still be doing something you’d not do in front of your rov.

    I mean, can you imagine my wife walking in to Dunkin’ Doughnuts and seeing me at a table with a chevrah wearing skirts? Or having my kids see me? No, that’s not what we want coming out of the CR.

    But I’ll keep you posted on the kiddush. If we can pull it off, we’ll have a mechitza, so all will be A-ok!

    hmmm sounds like an idea! However- I gathered from reading their posts we do not live at all near each other….Who knows maybe we all share a distant relative and by our third cousins twice removed simcha well get to meet:)

    Blinky: When I first began using the internet almost 20 years ago, there was an online Jewish Community on AOL. It was quite an amazing place – of course not frum. At one point they began an online shul and had nightly services. People who lived in tiny little communities who had no Jewish contact participated and eventually many of them began making the commute to a real shul for Yomtovim. Anyway, there were several chat rooms and the one that I participated in decided to have a get-together. Many of us met each other in person in Las Vegas – I went twice, in Miami – I went to that one and in Fort Lauderdale. Some excellent friendships were made. Also, several times during the year, in cities where there were a number of people living – LA, NY, etc. people would get together for a brunch. Of course, it took a lot of co-ordination – particularly the out of town events – and someone had to be willing to take on the reponsibility of being the chairperson. It was almost like going to an out of town family simcha. So, it can be done….. Of course, I would be willing to be the host but I doubt that any of you wish to travel to the Canadian prairies.

    I happen to think posters(bloggers? :D) in the CR are usually extra polite and friendly. It’s one nice site to be on the internet!

    Anyone else feel like it’s a little family for those of us who post often and for a while already?

    Minyan Gal –

    While I’m not on-line quite that long, I see one major difference between the AOL group you describe and the frum, on-line communiity of today. That group was seeking people who are like-minded, and the net brought them together. Today, many of us share the same ideas, but for one reason or another (gender, family, ect) need to keep our ideas off the public record.

    For example, I feel that boys should be ready to work, shortly after marriage. But if my kids decide to be the sit and learn type, my rants will only embarress them, and my spouse / mechutonim to boot.

    Or if I have some really good cc cookie receipes, that ms. 19 year old, still in sem, would like to have, that’s ok if its shared on-line, and in a moderated site. But very NOT ok if its swapped in Vegas.

    And for the record, YNW is the only CR I visit. Mods (and the CR group)keep things on a fair playing field, and I don’t need the trouble the unmonitored net can bring.

    Canadian Praries, huh? Boy, talk about OOT!

I tried all the codes on the bottom under the reply box.

Dittos from me!

I am fairly new here. Originally, I thought I’d pop on and just have my say…and get right off. But then the atmosphere here was just so wonderful… normal, respectful and fun!

And here I still am.

(BPTotty – you absolutely are for the books!!) 🙂

Popa go to

I picked up a lot there. A great place to experiment without annoying anybody. You can even write things like

I would never vacation anywhere I might meet a frum jew. is it any wonder I want to get away from frum jews?

chad:

It’s true. I hate vacationing near jews. This past bein hazmanim, I went backpacking in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. It was great, except on the roads in Yellowstone, there were frum jews. We tried to stay off the roads.
