The mods are accusing me of being Joseph, who else thinks I am, and who’s going to back me and that knows that I’m not Joseph.June 20, 2011 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #826006ZeesKiteParticipant
They are not. They’re allowed to kid around just like we do.June 20, 2011 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #826007a maminParticipant
I certainly would not have expected that????June 20, 2011 5:18 pm at 5:18 pm #826008
when i typed in real-brisker to check your profile I found the header saying “see I told you so” then i put it as 1 word and you came up. There must be some confusion b/c I remember your subtitle as “that’s Brisk Baby” or you really are using a second name like your post with pac-man pac/man pac man
I don’t know who or why they say it’s you because the mods aren’t speaking outJune 20, 2011 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #826009
I can’t say I know that you’re not Joseph, but I would be shocked. Your styles are quite different. I’ve usually picked up on Joseph’s new aliases pretty quickly, and your style does not fit.June 20, 2011 6:38 pm at 6:38 pm #826010mewhoParticipant
joseph with the coat of many colors?June 20, 2011 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #826011minyan galMember
How would we know whether or not you are Joseph? This is an anonymous site and the only ones that are privy to our email addresses or IP numbers are the mods. Also, I for one, don’t care whether or not you are Joseph.June 20, 2011 8:16 pm at 8:16 pm #826012TheGoqParticipant
real you are far too mature to be confused with josephJune 20, 2011 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #826013Pac-ManMember
zees maamin, daas, goq thanx for your support
our styles r so differant i dont know how they could make that mistake..June 20, 2011 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #826014HaLeiViParticipant
Once in a lifetime everyone must go through a Joseph stage. Are they editing or deleting most of what you post? If not, they don’t think you are Joseph.June 20, 2011 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #826015Daniel BreslauerMember
I don’t get the point. Why is everyone so obsessed with Joseph here? I suppose he was banned – I missed that part of the story. But I just don’t see the point. Some people here are more obsessed with finding (and seeing) Joseph in every corner of the CR, than some Yerushalmi Rebbes are in burning iPhones. And that is quite a high level of zealousness.June 20, 2011 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #826016always hereParticipant
I never thought you’re Joseph. 🙂June 20, 2011 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #826017
Thanks everyone for backing me up, how can we get this resolved?June 20, 2011 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm #826018
i think its a bandwagon thing.
now that a poster sees how everyone is criticizing joseph, its easy to do so yourself, without fear of one being considered rude.June 20, 2011 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #826019cokeMember
you are not joseph but i would not be shocked if i found out that he was a nice calm even-tempered poster also. jos logs in sometimes under pac man to post something sharp like he tends to but when he wants to agree with ppl he posts under a diff name…..June 20, 2011 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #826020
Mods – Any Explanation?June 20, 2011 11:22 pm at 11:22 pm #826022
Besides the fact that real-brisker has a very different style than Joseph, I don’t ever recall Joseph protesting so vehemently (except when it wasn’t him, like in the HaleiVi case).June 20, 2011 11:29 pm at 11:29 pm #826023
DY – Thanks, Can you please explain coffe adict why he had the occurance that he mentioned in his post.June 20, 2011 11:34 pm at 11:34 pm #826024
when i typed in real-brisker to check your profile I found the header saying “see I told you so”
That’s my fault. I originally opened under the name real-brisker to show that a SN can be duplicated, and then changed it at r-b’s request (I generally do not use any other screen names, this was a demo).June 20, 2011 11:38 pm at 11:38 pm #826025
You must have read my mind; I posted my last post before I saw yours!June 20, 2011 11:53 pm at 11:53 pm #826026
DY – Lol, Thanks.June 21, 2011 12:43 am at 12:43 am #826027ItcheSrulikMember
I don’t think your Joseph. I suspected it a few times but I realized that as much as I disagree with you on just about everything and as much as you agree with him, you post coherently and civilly which is a dead giveaway.June 21, 2011 12:50 am at 12:50 am #826028Josh31Participant
At least 5 Josephs have already posted on this thread.June 21, 2011 12:54 am at 12:54 am #826029

Mods – Is this thread not enough proofs that I am not Joseph? Why wasn’t my subtitle switched back yet?June 21, 2011 3:48 am at 3:48 am #826032

I think you’ll just have to accept that you’re the real-joseph, and the others are all fake!June 21, 2011 4:27 am at 4:27 am #826037

Why don’t we ask Pac-man?
Pac-Man doesn’t know. He’s not Joseph, but is quite amused to be thought that he is. Besides, you can’t fight City Hall.June 21, 2011 4:34 am at 4:34 am #826039

the mods of course. the editor doesn’t give out subtitlesJune 21, 2011 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #826044mewhoParticipant

real brisker – maybe they’re just taking revenge – remember you accused the yn editor of being joseph?
if it makes a difference, i also vote that you’re NOT joseph or pacman or clairvoyant or grandmaster or….June 21, 2011 1:33 pm at 1:33 pm #826046

At first I was blocked without an explanation and figured it was a computer error, since they had absolutely no content-related reason to believe I was him. After trying to email and being ignored I created the RuffRuff account. Then, that was blocked along with a subtitle of “Joseph again”.
At that point I realized what the issue must be. I used OperaMini on my phone as my browser. This app tries to save data cost by rerouting every request to their server and downsizing the response. YeshivaWorld gets the IP of Opera instead of mine. Anyone using the same app would appear to be coming from the same IP.
Therefore, I emailed and posted this fact, which got deleted, and another member posted that they know me personally, and contacted the mods as well. After a little while they figured it out, either on their own or through my advice. They never told me which.
But like I wrote earlier, Joseph seems to get special treatment. So, if your comments don’t get chopped up and manipulated, they don’t really think you are he.June 21, 2011 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm #826049
so joe uses opera also?June 21, 2011 4:54 pm at 4:54 pm #826050
HaLeiVi – That is actually very intresting, because I also use opera mini, but I was under the assumption that it creates a new IP address every time you log onto it. Because if you go to whatismyip.org it gives a different one every time. And your theory really makes sense because I actually also got blocked around 7 months ago, without any reason. (do you remember the editor accuse me, you, joseph, and dave hirsch to be the same person in the ami magazine thread?) And recived no responses… So what I did was just create a new account under the same SN. and I guess now I am holding by the same second step as you were.June 21, 2011 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #826051
Interesting. I use an internet provider which employs a proxy as a filter. I wonder if anyone using the same company comes up under the same IP.June 21, 2011 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #826052
no one has in a long time
but there were a bunch last yearJune 21, 2011 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm #826053
How many is a bunch? If it was just a couple it might have been me (two around April Fool’s day).June 21, 2011 6:35 pm at 6:35 pm #826054
i dont recall but one was “philosopher” who is someone i knowJune 21, 2011 6:37 pm at 6:37 pm #826055
Then it’s an issue with the provider (you don’t know me, AFAIK).
If you could, please change r-b’s subtitle back – I’m convinced that it’s a similar issue, and he seems pretty disturbed by it.June 21, 2011 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm #826056Daniel BreslauerMember
That is pretty strong language. Be careful.June 21, 2011 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #826057
