It’s funny – B,C,D, and E, are the exact opposites of what I was thinking. But I guess it does go both ways. Anyway, I can’t answer A. I can’t answer C,D, and E, for the same reason as explained in this conversation between myself and PulsingFlower (you can just click on the first link and read straight; I put the other links so that you could skip the other posts in that thread that weren’t part of the conversation):
F, is an interesting one. Are you alleging that everyone in the Coffee Room (yourself included) is not fulfilling their potential? Or is it my specific potential that can’t be fulfilled in the Coffee Room?November 20, 2014 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #1156649Sam2Participant
Reading PAA’s posts, I often wonder if I’m PAA. He talks exactly like me, except that he cuts-and-pastes full sources.November 20, 2014 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #1156650
Yep. Sam I am.
My Sam2 persona is for when I don’t have the time to quote the sources in full. My Patur Aval Assur persona is for when I do have the time to quote the sources in full. Also, it’s helpful for when I want to take two different sides of an issue. I take one side as Sam and one side as Patur (see for example http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/shmuly-yanklowitz-novominsker-and-oo-theology )
Sometimes it gets to the point where I accuse myself of kefira (see http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/2#post-514492 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/3#post-529780 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/3#post-529783 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/3#post-529801 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/3#post-529805 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/3#post-529879 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/3#post-529902 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/3#post-529910 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/maybe-we-all-should-stop-getting-drunk-on-purim/page/3#post-529938 )
Sometimes I just like to talk to myself (see http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/why-are-some-people-so-smart/page/3#post-533551 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/why-cant-women-get-modern-smicha-and-become-rabbis/page/4#post-532715 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/why-cant-women-get-modern-smicha-and-become-rabbis/page/4#post-533664 )
Sometimes I accuse myself of misunderstanding gemaros (see http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/white-skirts-tzenius#post-530675 http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/anti-isreal-goyim-yemach-shemom-and-anti-isreal-jews#post-538870 )
Sometimes I forget my past (see http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/zionism-why-the-big-debate#post-541745 )
Sometimes I object to my own thread (see http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/yavam-inheriting-father-who-was-a-ger#post-530433 )

Was this one intentional also?December 18, 2014 12:36 am at 12:36 am #1156662
No 🙂 in what way was that offensive?December 18, 2014 4:09 am at 4:09 am #1156663
I’ts not. I hope you didn’t think that I was implying that you were offensive. The criteria for a quote making it into here, are complex. Quotes which are accusatory, exasperatory, or make a statement about me will probably make it in.
I know you probably meant it in a nice/joking way, and that is in fact how I interpreted it. But I still like the line, so I am preserving it for posterity.December 18, 2014 4:51 am at 4:51 am #1156664
You’re making me blush 🙂 (but seeing as this is the report card thread, doesn’t the apostrophe go after the ‘t’ in ‘it’s’ ? ;p)December 18, 2014 6:05 am at 6:05 am #1156665

PAA didn’t say that the apostrophe is supposed to be directly after the “i”, he’s just pointing out that this is one of the rare times that it in fact is.December 18, 2014 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #1156670

Thanks for the limud zechut, but if that’s what I meant then I should have said “isn’t” instead of “doesn’t”.December 18, 2014 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm #1156674

Read my statement again. You misinterpreted it. (Perhaps deliberately?)December 18, 2014 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #1156676
PAA said that he should have said “isn’t,” not that
Cozimjewish should have.
However, saying “isn’t” would not have answered the question. The question was “Does it not?” The (false) answer given was “It does not.”December 18, 2014 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #1156677
Should I assume Yigal Calek’s “Mar’eh Kohen” does not

Does anyone remember (did they notice?) when Cozimjewish unilaterally made an addition to the thread by posting a critical comment about one of PAA’s posts (in this thread) and attributing it to herself?
Whether it was intentional or not, I was amused.December 18, 2014 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #1156679

You have to listen to Ohad’s version to understand why I recommended it. It’s on youtube.December 19, 2014 12:57 am at 12:57 am #1156680
Then you should have mentioned him to begin with.
Cozimjewish doesn’t have YouTube access, so you might want
to find an alternate location and post it in her thread.December 19, 2014 2:36 am at 2:36 am #1156681
“That was a joke. Please continue to point out my mistakes.”
Sure thing ;p (just kidding. There’s hardly any of them anyway 🙂 )
In what way is that accusatory, exasperatory, or making a statement about you (or offensive, for that matter)?
“Thanks for the limud zechut, but if that’s what I meant then I should have said “isn’t” instead of “doesn’t”.”
That just made me more confused.
“Does anyone remember (did they notice?) when Cozimjewish unilaterally made an addition to the thread by posting a critical comment about one of PAA’s posts (in this thread) and attributing it to herself? Whether it was intentional or not, I was amused.”
Thanks 🙂 Actually, I sort of copied it from here:
“You have to listen to Ohad’s version to understand why I recommended it. It’s on youtube”
Taking your memory into consideration, PAA, I am surprised you don’t recall that I can’t access YouTube 😉December 19, 2014 3:26 am at 3:26 am #1156682
I assume he thought “HUH” was in response to his false answer to you.
“isn’t” might have been confusing because it didn’t make sense.
Oops. Sorry, Popa. (I don’t see how that post made any sense, though, so I think you put it to better use, Cozimjewish.)December 19, 2014 4:07 am at 4:07 am #1156683
“I assume he thought “HUH” was in response to his false answer to you.”
” “isn’t” might have been confusing because it didn’t make sense.”
I officially give up.
“Oops. Sorry, Popa. (I don’t see how that post made any sense, though, so I think you put it to better use, Cozimjewish.)”
Wow – I did better than popa?! If this thread hadn’t been in my favorites already I would add it now just for that compliment :D!December 19, 2014 5:56 am at 5:56 am #1156684
Comlink-X and cozimjewish:
Well, seeing as both of you pointed out that cozimjewish does not have access to youtube, I would point out that the post in which I mentioned youtube, was a response to Comlink-X not cozimjewish, and he does in fact have access to youtube. Had I been addressing cozimjewish I would have put it in the thread about fast songs.
The statement “HUH???” connotes that I said something crazy, or non-understandable which is grounds to make it to the report card.
To (attempt to) address your confusion regarding the limud zechut, basically I was saying that DaasYochid tried to defend me from your grammatical critique (which was actually probably just a typo, but that is neither here nor there), yet his defense was not a good defense because if my original answer had meant what he was alleging, then instead of saying “This is actually one of the rare times when it doesn’t” I should have said “This is actually one of the rare times when it isn’t”. (I hope this helped unconfuse you. If not, let me know and I’ll try again.)
If I correctly understood what you were saying, you don’t get Popa’s post that cozimjewish linked to. That’s probably because there is no context there. So I’ll give you the context:
A few months ago, I had made several references to Techeiles in a short period of time, reaching a climax when I started the thread: http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/korachs-profound-argument
(Keep in mind that I have a 15 page thread on Techeiles.)
Popa there responded by saying: “My wife says PAA is meshuga l’davar echod” the davar echod being Techeiles. (His wife later apologized when
Anyway, once I made this thread, Mrs. Popa apparently decided that I was no longer only meshuga l’davar echad; I was now meshuga for everything, which she felt was a dubious improvement.
Based on what I just wrote, Comlink-X might understand Popa’s post and no longer necessarily think that you put it to better use. But you’re still welcome to keep this as one of your favorite threads.December 19, 2014 7:18 am at 7:18 am #1156685
Read my statement again. You misinterpreted it. (Perhaps deliberately?)
If I had a report card thread…
Perhaps misinterpreted, not deliberately.
Randomex has it right – your comment, as a response to cozimjewish, correctly said “doesn’t” rather than the contextually inappropriate “isn’t”.December 19, 2014 7:30 am at 7:30 am #1156686
“The statement “HUH???” connotes that I said something crazy, or non-understandable”
Crazy, no. Non-understandable, maybe. Still not accusatory, exasperatory, or making a statement about you (rather, it is posing a question about something you said, which is different). Incidentally, is exasperatory even a word? (I’ll still use it even if it isn’t, coz I like it 😉 )December 19, 2014 7:33 am at 7:33 am #1156687
“(I hope this helped unconfuse you. If not, let me know and I’ll try again.)”
Don’t bother, I have given up already 😉
“But you’re still welcome to keep this as one of your favorite threads”
You’re hilarious 😀December 19, 2014 12:27 pm at 12:27 pm #1156688

And what will you say when someone asks you where you got the word from?
Don’t bother, I have given up already 😉
Just let me know when you ungive up.
You’re hilarious 😀
Why thank you.
Crazy, no. Non-understandable, maybe. Still not accusatory, exasperatory, or making a statement about you (rather, it is posing a question about something you said, which is different).
Implying that I said something non-understandable is something which can technically be an “insult” but which I accept with pride.December 19, 2014 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1156689
Perhaps misinterpreted, not deliberately.
I apologize for the implied “accusation”.December 21, 2014 12:38 am at 12:38 am #1156690
PAA – do you anatomize EVERY post?! (That was half exasperatory, half amused. No need to quote me, it’s in this thread anyway 🙂 )December 21, 2014 2:10 am at 2:10 am #1156691
I don’t think I’m anatomizing. I think you might get the impression that I’m anatomizing because of the way in which I intersperse my comments with quotes from your posts, which I do because I am responding to your statements individually. But I don’t want to be the cause of even half exasperation, so if you want, I will cease responding to your posts in such a manner.December 21, 2014 5:39 am at 5:39 am #1156692
Don’t worry, it’s good 🙂 I like the way you anatomize my posts 🙂 (I still hold that it’s anatomizing ;p)December 21, 2014 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #1156693

Actually, it was obvious that there was context missing. I assumed that at some point in the past, a statement about MLdA had been made.
No reason was given, however, for a switch to MLkD.
(You assume it to be this thread – fair enough, but
could I have been expected to realize that?)
Likewise, there would appear to be no advantage in being MLkD over MLdA, so I don’t think the term “dubious improvement” applied.
(Thanks for clearing up the matter of the “This has nothing…”
thread’s title – I had wondered about that.)
At any rate, Cozimjewish had a valid complaint, and Popa had an insult. Which do you think I would consider a better post?December 22, 2014 2:44 am at 2:44 am #1156695

Makes up for it? Don’t chap…December 22, 2014 3:51 am at 3:51 am #1156697
Perhaps “makes up for it” is the wrong term. How about I say that your post retroactively justifies the post that I linked?
