    …you approve (and disapproveπŸ™) all the posts that need moderating and are come backs 3 seconds later to check for more.

    You start doing the moderator’s job!!

    shtultzy guy,

    Should I start listing the names for you, perhaps it will help you to remember your passwords? Well, well, before I do that, I would ask the posek hador for advice.

    #1119273

    AHAH shtultzy guy and posek hador are the same person?

    #1119274

    touche … tell me, does anyone moderate the moderators … lol … who are these guys anyways??

    #1119275

    …you sign your screen name at the bottom of a check

    …you hear a good joke and audibly respond “LOL” instead of actually laughing

    …you stay late at work to make up for all the time spent reading posts (true)

    …when asked your name, it takes a minute to remember your real name instead of your screen name

    …the sound that immediately follows havdala is the “click” of your computer’s switch as you check the latest posts

    …six hours before havdala, you think “if I were in Israel, I could be posting”

    …YWN is your homepage

    …when you refer to certain names in conversation, no explanation is needed

    …the only words that get you to shut down the computer are “I’m lighting candles”

    …you won’t eat before davening, but you will check the latest posts

    …you spend time responding to silly threads

    When you go through “YWN Coffee Room” Withdrawal every Shabbos, and Yom Tov!

    #1119287

    …when temporary loss of Internet access is a major tragedy because you just KNOW someone responded to your post and you have to read it!

    …when you log on Motzei Shabbos knowing the freshest post will be 20 hours old since it’s still Shabbos in NY, but you’re disappointed anyway.

    …when your roommate asks why you bother arguing with anonymous people on the Internet and you have no good response, but you just can’t stop doing it.

    …when you check YWN before checking your e-mail.

    …when you stare at random people on the street thinking “that could be Joseph” and then think “oh wait, he lives in NY…well, maybe that woman over there is yoshi. Where does she live again?”

    …when you read through all of the posts on this thread and find yourself nodding along.

    …when you do the usual read-through of your post before pressing send and realize you have just listed all the reasons why you need to get a life.

    I sure know what you mean with those last four – I think we all need a shrink.

    Maybe we can get a discount for group therapy.

    BTW – It just dawned on me – this is the first time you wrote something I actually agree with! πŸ™‚

    “Joseph”:

    I thought you went out with Yonasan!

    …when you keep referring to “Give Me a Break” and his bar plugta, “Joseph.”

    Its funny that so many people mentioned Joseph. When I saw the post my first thought was: I know I’m spending too much time on YW when I’m looking for ways to start up with Joseph

    it sounds like every one is admiting to some compulsive tendencies over here…. ever heard of internet addiction? seriously, though, i think YWN does a great service by providing a kosher atmosphere for venting, arguing or just stating your opinon.
