My name is realtalk and jews are supposed to tell the truth.December 31, 2015 7:43 pm at 7:43 pm #1218234
I’m thinking maybe screennames davka should not have a yiddishe tam. Perhaps its a bizayon to Hashem? Or I guess it depends what the user is saying under that username..
But I’m not sure because that’ll mean I’ll need to change my secreenname which I don’t want to do.
Sorry this is me thinking aloud.December 31, 2015 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #1218235JosephParticipant
Why are you being bittul zman by going back and reading so many old threads?January 4, 2016 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #1218236
its better than being bittul zman by going through all the current threads that don’t interest me.February 17, 2017 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm #1218237
or, maybe if they specifically did have a yiddishe tam it would remind people of their yiddishness (made up word) while posting.
still musing..February 19, 2017 2:02 am at 2:02 am #1218238
That’s what I think. That’s why I try to use Torahdik concepts for my passwords – specifically, words that will have an effect on me when I type them.
HashemisReading serves that purpose as well. I just feel funny calling someone Hashem…. I know that’s not how it’s meant, c”v, but that’s how it feels to me. Maybe I should just call you Reading for short.
It is nice when people have user names that have a “messer”, like yours does. Then you internalize the concept each time you type it.February 20, 2017 1:34 am at 1:34 am #1218239
Lilmod: but my screenname is not really Hashem. Hashem is reading is supposed to be a direct reminder to everyone that Hashem is in the CR so take heed. halachos of onaas devarim are not voided when entering. So calling myself ‘Hashem is Reading’ isnt really putting Hashem to a guf..February 20, 2017 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #1218240
I realize that, and it’s a really nice idea. My problem is that as I’m writing out your name, it feels like I’m c”v referring to you as Hashem.
I realize that’s not how it’s meant – but it feels that way to me.February 23, 2017 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #1218241
Still not really understanding how you feel like your referring to Hashem. Maybe when people are talking to me they shouldn’t shorten it to “Hashem”? Like if my screenname was Hashem is here maybe it would be a little different..February 23, 2017 10:59 pm at 10:59 pm #1218242
I guess it’s because your name starts off with the word “Hashem”, so I am first saying “Hashem” when I am referring to you.
I was trying to figure out why this feels different than a name that has Hashem’s Name in it. There are a few differences. One is that this reads as 3 separate words. Another is that I think most names that have Hashem in them either have it at the end (like Batya) or in the middle or it’s not “Hashem” but “my Hashem” (like Eliyahu).
Also with hebrew names, I guess I don’t look at it the same way. When I say Batya and Eliyahu, I think of the people I am referring to, not of the meaning of the name.
