Dont get me wrong. I love ya all but I just can’t seem to remember anything. For example, when I read who is saying what I feel its one big blur. AND when I do manage to memorize a few names I end up mishing and confusing them. FOr example, I always mix up gefen, smartcookie, aries and health as the same. I also mix up everyone else whose name I cannot even remember right now. THe only ones who I dont seem to forget their names are GOQ and Popa bar abba, and zeeskite. But I always confuse her with all those other mommydik names of other CR members and dont ASK ME WHY??? I have no idea.
How can I memorize and familiarize myself with the names and personalities of all members? or are there just too many to do so?
And I am only referring to the popular most posting ones.November 28, 2011 2:58 am at 2:58 am #1037153smartcookieMember

Good point gefen!!November 28, 2011 3:21 am at 3:21 am #1037155brightcolouredkettlesParticipant
Always Runs:it’s great since it prevents you from Josephing…lol
I missed gefen’s point, so I’m wondering how good of a point it was for it to disapear…lolNovember 28, 2011 3:39 am at 3:39 am #1037156BaalHaboozeParticipant
Always runs- You’re not alone on this one. I had a terrible time figuring out members here and conversations I had, and only got used to it after a year or so. i tried comparing members with people I know according to their personalities, humor, intellect. Good luck!

I still don’t get what means “Joseph”. Who was he, why is everyone against him, what did he do wrong? I actually remember some funny /friendly comments coming from somebody named Joseph once.November 28, 2011 4:48 am at 4:48 am #1037159
<Blush> How’d you get to remember me?! Out of all people?!

She/He’s getting more sophisticated, I see…November 28, 2011 5:59 am at 5:59 am #1037166
I dont know zeeskite, I guess because of your name, and your posts I tend to imagine you easily as a bais yakkov graduate married to a ben torah sitting and learning. Folding laundry all day and I imagine you to wear a blonde sheitel. LOL
Then I can remember your name since I have attached to it so many specifics. Get it? I imagine Goq as some odd ball genius semi quasie religious with a sense of humur. But for about 90% of every member I dont imagine anything at all therefore its hard to remember them.November 28, 2011 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #1037167TheGoqParticipant

That’s where signatures help! You see the siggy and remember the person. Agree?

SiDi: I don’t think so. I don’t seem to remember you, in person. Your signature doesn’t help. (do you remember me?!?)July 10, 2012 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #1037172golferParticipant
For the newcomers, does anyone care to post the unforgettable sad sordid saga of Joseph?
And, always runs, i thought my name was actually pretty descriptive, in case you’r trying to picture a poster…July 10, 2012 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #1037173Shticky GuyParticipant
Golfer: … i thought my name was actually pretty descriptive
In what way is it descriptive? Golf is believed to be derived from the Scottish word “goulf” which means “to strike.” So I suppose I can say you have a striking name!
Or the Golf name of Volkswagen Golf is derived from the German word for the gulf stream wind. So I can say your name totally blows me away.July 11, 2012 12:03 am at 12:03 am #1037174Doodle-Man™Member

I know who is Joseph? Why did ppl think i was him at the beginning??
And I guess I profile people so I tend to remember them but here its kinda hard coz ur not the “21 year old girl from NY” as there’s no names/ages/places given here… but really it doesn’t make a difference if u remember who the person was does it??July 11, 2012 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm #1037178
i only joined CR one or two months ago, but i have noticed loads of mentions to Joseph – was he some sort of dude who had more than one username? he sounds like something like that…
BTW, YEKKE is quite easy to picture. Trousers just below the neck, half-moon glasses, white moustache and balding hair, watch on the arm. What more can you need?July 11, 2012 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm #1037179
And, although i have noticed him less recently, THE WOLF is one of my highlights here. I Love his sarcasm and self-decided damnation for eternity… — Have you really not noticed him?July 11, 2012 3:39 pm at 3:39 pm #1037180
Do Yekkes know how to laugh? Smile?July 11, 2012 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1037181yummy cupcakeMember
lol goq!July 12, 2012 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #1037182
Zeeskite – you picked up on the Yekke ‘laugh’ and ‘smile’ – I also wrote I love…. You not bothered by that one???July 12, 2012 3:58 pm at 3:58 pm #1037183
Yekkes can love. Nothing wrong with that. I just thought the Yekkes didn’t know from humor. My ancestors were Yekkes. Straight. Real straight. (ps I rebelled!!)October 19, 2014 2:59 am at 2:59 am #1037184☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I’m also confused. Sam is popa, and popa is Wolf? Does that mean Sam is Wolf?October 19, 2014 6:05 am at 6:05 am #1037185
Just popped in to the cr. …and the title of this thread really caught my eye. I decided to join in and read the op because I can really relate. then I discovered that I am the one who started this post. I’m the Op.!!!!

“how funny is that?
[Makes serious face] Not funny enough to justify the bump.”
I disagree arwsf I found that really funny! (Sorry Randomex! 😉 )October 20, 2014 12:20 pm at 12:20 pm #1037191
Welcome back Randomex, btw. Missed you 🙂October 21, 2014 2:00 am at 2:00 am #1037192
Yeah- Randomex, my good old friend who always pulls through with clarification in the CR- since no one seems to be answering the “Who in Heaven’s name is Joseph” question- will u please tell us?? If you know, that is. In any case, what makes him any more discussion worthy than any of us, like Yummy Cupcake?October 21, 2014 2:24 am at 2:24 am #1037193showjoeParticipant
joseph (as far as i understand) was a poster in the cr in the original days, when the cr was just new, and got banned. he has since tried to use many different usernames to incite riots in the cr, and is most of the time caught by the mods.
wait you dont know who joseph is, but u do know who YC is? how long have you been on the cr w/o knowing who joseph isOctober 21, 2014 4:08 am at 4:08 am #1037194
OK, eftach, I’ll put it in your language (if you’re really into the kinor), he joined the Banned Wagon.October 21, 2014 6:24 am at 6:24 am #1037195
LOL! It’s funny that this has been going on so long…
3 years ago, there were already threads asking about Joseph!
Well, it’s pretty much like Sh0wj0e said, except I’m not sure if he was banned for his use of multiple accounts or if that
came later. I’ll just add that Joseph represents the far right of
(semi-?)mainstream Judaism, and his last known sighting (AFAIK):
Also, no one knows how the mods know if a poster is Joseph.October 21, 2014 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm #1037196
Sh0wj0e and Randomex- Not that long. Anyhow I don’t read everything here, only stuff that catches my interest. I never read those Joseph threads.
LF- lol. I like the banned wagon part. But sorry I don’t chap- shaychis kinor?October 21, 2014 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #1037197jewishfeminist02Member
How the mods know if a poster is Joseph? I’m guessing he’s used the same e-mail address, or different e-mail addresses under the same IP address.October 21, 2014 1:25 pm at 1:25 pm #1037198
Kinor is a musical instrument, I think. And one probably uses it to play in a banned. Oh. (you’ll get used to me, corny)October 21, 2014 2:09 pm at 2:09 pm #1037199
Sh0wj0e and Randomex- Not that long.
His long was about you being a member (he couldn’t check, I assume, because he doesn’t know your original username), while mine was
about how long people have been wondering who Joseph is.
It’s in your name!October 21, 2014 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #1037200
“It’s in your name!” Randomex, I KNOW that!!!! You’re really nice and we’re good ol buddies, but sometimes u overstate the obvious and make me out to be a dunce!
Just gonna point out that harps are not really used in bands afaik.October 21, 2014 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm #1037201
You’ve used that pun before.
11 months ago:
10 months ago:
9 months ago:
Oh, you meant the shaychus to “banned,” not to you. Hey, you’ve told me almost the same thing before, too!
Looks like I don’t have trouble keeping CR members straight. 🙂October 21, 2014 5:00 pm at 5:00 pm #1037202
Randomex, I didn’t know my EVERY post was being studied, remembered. I forgot some /most of them. Too many to remember. (diff s/n too, iykwim) And they’re a lot. Really a lot. So I’m sorry for repeating my self. That’s right. I’m sorry for repeating my self.

“Looks like I don’t have trouble keeping CR members straight.”
But you do have trouble keeping yourself straight. Although, I can’t quote the link which proves it because it no longer exists.October 21, 2014 6:17 pm at 6:17 pm #1037204
So the straight people here have not yet caught that last one…October 21, 2014 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #1037205
Still waiting…October 22, 2014 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #1037206
Here’s a hint for them, Little Froggie:
Or did you mean the part about being sorry for
repeating “your self”? I understand that one.
EDIT: Oops! This time I posted in the wrong thread – partially, anyway. That hint doesn’t apply to this thread – it would apply to the thread Little Froggie also posted in the wrong thread about.
