    1. Put a space after each comma.

    2. ALL CAPS is taboo.

    3. You can really get solid, practical advice here(and a few laughs).

    4. Sadly, many people are suffering in ways I can only imagine, and I really feel sorry for them.

    5. Sadly, many people have unanswered questions about Hashem, and need “urgent care” chizuk.

    6. Everyone in the world thrives on positive feedback.

    What about y’all?

    That people have a lot of time on their hands.

    That people seek halachic advise from anonymous people.

    There is what to learn from many people whose externals could possibly put one of in reality from involving oneself with them – be it racial differences, be it gender differences, be it hassidic/modernorthodox/litvish/sephardic/yemenite/conservative/yekkish/mixedup. (Of course I cannnot know who is what, but we pick up things here and there – from the sort of sefarim/rabbanim people quote, from the things they say etc)

    I have also learnt that as many people as you ask, (any subject) that’s how many different responses you’re going to get. B”H for diversity.

    its a beautiful thing, because if we would actually meet face to face, half the people would never take advice from the other, whereas here ages, stages, and levels are no matter.

    @yaakov doe – I’ve been tempted to, but I realize I shouldn’t pose halachic questions to the CR. We’re all very smart people, but it’s better to seek this advice from one’s local Orthodox rabbi, who knows you and can make real halachic decisions based on your specific situation (if possible).

    What I’ve learned:

    1) There are some REAL nice, caring, gracious, courteous, polite, kind people out there. Some of them even frequent the CR.

    2) If one tends to post to much, or spill a bit too much personal stuff, some people will THINK they got you “busted”.

    3) One cannot totally change one’s true inner self, style, individuality. The inner “you” always shines (for lack of better word) through. (changing names does put some a bit behind, for some time..)

    4) Some topics are HOT real hot issues.

    5) Some topics are predictable. As are the view of some posters here.

    6) One can get carried away posting… (oy, did an hour just go by?!?)

    The world is a more complicated place than high school teachers would have you believe.

    There is always so much going on with other people’s life that it makes you think twice about being envious of another person’s belongings.
