Inspired by the report card thread. A selection of the awesome comments people have said about me in the Coffee Room:
“I am not going to keep harping on your asinine intellectually dishonest misconceptions…”
“If you have no kavod for gedolum and you’re not machshiv what you’re sons rebbeim are teaching them, please keep it to yourself. It doesn’t matter how many seforim you can quote, you are crum.”
“The sheer arrogance of this statement is staggering.”
“This is an example of where you ignore responses to you and talk “around” them. I have used this while trolling very effectively”
“Stop with your lawerly kup-dreing”
“This is an egregious misrepresentation of the havanah…”
“C’mon mods, it is far more likely that I call PAA a Kofer and believe it than vice versa. :)”
“Wow. This is beyond arrogant. But at least now you’ve made it abundantly clear that this is agenda driven, and that you’re unsinterested in hearing anything else to the contrary.”
“PAA, says kefirah. Enough is enough.”
“Why do you have to be whiny?”
“This is nonsensical and irrelevant. You for some reason seem incapable of making what is a fairly straightforward distinction…”
“So what you are saying is that you are not ma’amin be’emunah sh’leimah?”
“You just like being contrarian”
“Is it possible that Patur’s name just might be a freudian slip?? lol”
“why do you keep posting mekoros to back up your position long after people have stopped debating you. mima nafshach, either you’re just right, or people find you so annoying that they don’t engage you in conversation anymore.”
“I think it is quite outrageous to suggest that you understand the place and scope of mesorah in Judaism better than the Gedolei Rosh Hayeshivos.”
“You’ve quite frankly argued yourself into circles, probably because you forgot what your original position was.” (popa_bar_abba)
“This is nonsensical, circular logic, or gruesomely misleading (but still nonsensical).”
“PAA, like I said — stop with your lawerly convoluted arguments. Admit the truth.”
“If it makes you happy, you’re both kofrim.”
“You are yet again substituting ignorance for understanding…”

FWIW, my question was rhetorical.
You can add the following, though:
“PAA, you have made taking quotes out of context into an art form.”

One question: How many of those quotes came from the “rant about b’iyun” thread?July 28, 2014 11:17 am at 11:17 am #1156499TheGoqParticipant
Why cant you translate your hebrew parts for those of us not as erudite as you
(the goq)July 28, 2014 12:55 pm at 12:55 pm #1156500
Only two of them are from that thread.July 28, 2014 1:51 pm at 1:51 pm #1156501
“My wife says PAA is meshuga l’davar echod”
“you cannot say smthng halichically absurd and when proven wrong just say its a limud zechut. lo zu haderech.”
“PAA was talking about the 12 step program? What does he know about it?”
“…you are so much more removed from reality than I can imagine.”
“Pardon me if you wrote it in extreme innocence.”
“That seems like just the kind of belief that would come from not learning anything in shcool”
“I was not commenting upon her desire to daven, but on your statements that show a disdain for for both Torah and secular learning.”
“Not everything written should be quoted.”
“…taking R’ Chaim out of the realm of “hypothetical lomdus” (black hat tip to Gavra) is so outrageous, yet that is what you are doing.”
“Just bc you’re sitting by a computer doesn’t mean you turn off your lomdut”
“Why oh Why do you insist on ignoring everything I post?”
“…bringing more mareh m’komos of shittos which we don’t have a mesorah to follow doesn’t help your case.”
(DaasYochid)July 28, 2014 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm #1156502
(I was going to respond to you in hebrew but then I thought better of it.)
I would love to. But their are several impediments.
1)It takes me beyond long just to post the hebrew text; translating it would severely lengthen that amount of time.
2)A lot is lost in translation especially the tone especially in a rant.
3)Many of the paragraphs that I quote are hard to accurately translate word for word into English. Perhaps I could summarize it in English.
In summation: Perhaps I will try to translate/summarize some/all of my hebrew posts if there is indeed a market for it. If you ask me about a specific post then it is much more likely that I will do so.
Thank you for the compliment.July 28, 2014 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm #1156503
Thank you ari-free.July 28, 2014 2:03 pm at 2:03 pm #1156504
I like your line. But are you saying it because you think that the comments about me were taking out of context, or because you think that in general I take things out of context, or is it for an entirely different reason?July 28, 2014 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #1156505
Mostly, I said it because I thought you’d like the line.
Some (certainly not all) of the quotes you’ve brought from seforim, IMHO were not meant in the context you put them in, and some of the quotes from posters and moderators you’ve brought here were not meant as they seem when not in their original context.
But despite the element of truth, I said it more to be humorous than critical. I am enjoying this lighthearted thread.July 28, 2014 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #1156506TheGoqParticipant
Your welcome and i get it.July 28, 2014 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #1156507

“Not good to mix jokes w/ real torah.”
“Patur aval tiyuvta…”
“But seriously Patur Aval Assur, you’ve got to be kidding…”
“PAA- I AM A GIRL!!!! if i walked into a beis medrash- there would be problems!!!!”
“demeaning Torah, halacha and gedolim is not okay”

Maybe this thread should be titled “PAA’s Coffee Room Report Card Comments”?!July 29, 2014 2:27 am at 2:27 am #1156511
“Maybe this thread should be titled “PAA’s Coffee Room Report Card Comments”?!”
Good idea. If I was a moderator I would change it.

My wife says that being meshuga for everything is a dubious improvement over being meshuga l’davar echod.

P.S. i hope these quotes were grossly taken out of context bc otherwise it doesnt appear to me that ari-free is right…July 29, 2014 6:03 am at 6:03 am #1156522

It’s pretty good that with all my back and forth on some thread ago, I didn’t leave a quotable.July 29, 2014 12:57 pm at 12:57 pm #1156525
“You don’t have to force a wedge where it doesn’t fit.”
“It’s funny that you left out the other Pshatim if the Maharal. When there’s a point to make..”
“Oh, the halacha man are you. Don’t you think it is halacha that you are supposed to daven?”
“Now that they have been wrong for years, for you to agree with them is like believing in fairies, in that both are stupid.”

Don’t worry, you are.

So you can make a whole thread of “nasty” comments aimed at you.
I’d be lucky if I could make a whole thread of non-nasty comments aimed at me.July 29, 2014 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #1156529
Good project for PAA. Find the compliments of PBA, especially not about being funny.July 29, 2014 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #1156530
Well, here’s one:
Y’know, I ignored this thread for a while. The topic is just too boring for me and the opinions are preset and predictable. However, I saw your name and figured it would be worth checking it out. And it was. Thanks.
Popa, you have the ability to be so level-headed and insanely wild in the same breath.

“Yes, it was trickery on your part, please do not engage in that any more.”
Yes, I figured that would make it here.August 26, 2014 1:12 pm at 1:12 pm #1156542
“Yes, I figured that would make it here.”
The whole reason why I arranged that whole situation was just to provoke a line that I could quote here. I was hoping for something harsher though.
It’s a shame you can’t quote what I was thinking. 😉August 26, 2014 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #1156543
“It’s a shame you can’t quote what I was thinking. ;)”
Feel free to post it directly.
We’ll do this multiple choice style:
1) PAA, behave yourself.
2) That is the most moronic Diyuk I have ever heard
4) Try that again and you are blocked
5) I am kidding
6) All of the aboveAugust 26, 2014 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #1156544
I like the second one the best but “all of the above” works also.
