its absolutely hilarious how hes unable to give a single name of a rabbi in all the world and still tries to avoid an answer!December 8, 2008 5:51 am at 5:51 am in reply to: Mesivta Bochurim With Cell Phones #627812
Even with the minority of carriers that provide that detail, it is not complete. If the caller blocked their phone #, in the majority of times the number will not appear on the itemized statement. Have you never seen an incoming call on your bill that lacked a number? I don’t think you – or anyone – can make such a claim. (And this is in addition to the ingenuity of the youth I alluded to previously, that will enable them to take counter measures to even normal blocking and itemization.)December 8, 2008 5:13 am at 5:13 am in reply to: The Yetzer Hara of Bitul Zman – Online – Internet Addiction? #1076962

mw13, Kids are naturally versatile, intuitive, astute, and clever. They WILL find ways around “blocks”. They can even find ways around their activity appearing on the monthly detail section. Trust me, it can be done, it has been done, and it will be done.
And this is aside from the dangers involved from unfettered VOICE ONLY access. Surely you are not oblivious that unfettered access to RECEIVE (which are not detailed on the bill where it originated from) voice calls can be catastrophic?

mw13, au contraire. I’ve heard way too many horror stories of what happened to innocent children whose parents foolishly let roam with a cell phone.

Yup, traveled to Hong Kong for Shabbas, said he was in Jersey when asked after Shabbas, but VPN’d into his Jersey dsl account from Hong Kong – since those HK isp’s must block yw as contrary to Chinese law, so he especially tunneled through his dsl and used the slower connection.November 14, 2008 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm in reply to: Tenor of Discussion on YWN: When Discussions Become Acrimonious #625752
My (Orthodox) “Rav”, gives the thumbs up on driving to shul on shabbas.
Who’s words do you respect more, Shulchon Orach written 100’s of years ago, or your “Rabbi”?

One mistake you make is saying “there are two indisputable facts”. In fact, you should say that “there are THREE indisputable facts”.
Your two were:
1. there will always be many drunks in shul on simchas torah
2. there will always be laytzanus by mussuf after wards
If those two assumptions are “givens”, as you claim, the third “indisputable fact” is:
3. there will always be people who defend sheim shmayim and protest this unacceptable laytzanusOctober 26, 2008 3:39 pm at 3:39 pm in reply to: What Kind of a Kapora is This??? #623249

Rebbe Rashab (5th Lubavitcher Rebbe) on Zionism:
The Lubavitcher Rebbe:
From all the writings of the Zionists we can clearly see that their main aim and activity is to create the impression among the Jewish People that the whole purpose of the Torah and the commandments is merely to strengthen national feeling. This theory can easily be adopted by the youth who regard themselves as instruments prepared for the fulfillment of the Zionist ideal. They regard themselves as completely liberated form Torah and the commandments. They think nationalism has replaced religion… When Herzl was in the Holy Land he was far removed from G-d. He OPENLY PROFANED THE TORAH BY ENTERING THE HOLY CITY ON THE SABBATH. HE WENT TO THE SITE OF THE SANCTUARY WHICH EVEN FROM A HUMAN POINT OF VIEW HE SHOULD NOT HAVE DONE, THUS OPENLY PROFANING THE SABBATH IN THE HOLY CITY, AND IN THE PLACE OF HIS TEMPLE, DOING EVIL IN THE SIGHT OF G-D. In order to influence our brethren in favor of the Zionist aspiration for an independent nation and government, they have no alternative but to lead the people astray from the path of of Torah and the commandments, or at least, to weaken their attachment as much as possible SO THAT NATIONALISM SHOULD PREVAIL OVER TORAH, BECAUSE IT IS KNOWN THAT THOSE ATTACHED TO THE TORAH ARE UNLIKELY TO CHANGE AND ACCEPT SOME OTHER FORM OF FAITH. It is surely clear that the Zionists not only are not approaching Judaism, but that they entirely destroy Jewish souls in intentionally TAKING AWAY FROM THEM EVEN THE HIDDEN AND MYSTICAL FEELING IN THEIR SOULS FOR THE TORAH AND THE COMMANDMENTS….
Sholem Ber Schneersohn
“Regarding your question about the Zionists, allow me to respond briefly. Those who assist the Zionists will pay at the Day of Judgment, because they are causing the masses to sin. Therefore, whoever is on the side of G-d and his Torah shall not join with evildoers and not become attached to them. On the contrary, they should oppose them as much as possible.”
Your friend in truth, Shalom Dov Ber from Lubavitch
The Rebbe also said:
“The Zionists were more clever than the others, since they exchanged nationalism for the Torah and commandments, as Mandelstam wrote publicly, that a Jew doesn’t have to be someone who keeps the commandments , but rather is a Zionist, even if he does not wear phylacteries and does not keep the Sabbath….”September 19, 2008 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm in reply to: Respect for other posters comments #624339

Please. Calling us “holier than thou, super machmir, Taliban, judgemental, mean spririted” is hardly civil on your part. YOU HAVE MUCH INTROSPECTION TO DO ON YOUR PART>
I would definitely NOT suggest any books by Mr. Slifkin. Despite all the howls of the liberals, his had at least one book banned by the Gedolim for very good reason.
He actually believes the world is millions of years old.
Now all the liberals on the religious-left can come and defend him, defenseless as he is. (I’m sure if I criticized Moses Mendelsohn, some of the same crown would defend him too.)September 17, 2008 10:19 pm at 10:19 pm in reply to: Respect for other posters comments #624308
torah1, she just wants you to do teshuva.September 14, 2008 4:45 am at 4:45 am in reply to: Lycra long sleeve shirts #645812
because pritzus is one of, if not the, biggest pitfalls of our generation. it NEEDS constant rehashing. and obviously the gedolim recognize this and rightfully stress this important topic.
talking about tznius is never too much, just like talking about loshon hora is never too much. if there was a big problem with many people being mchalel shabbos (like there is with people being mchalel tznius) I am certain our gedolim would endlessly be talking about the importance of shmiras shabbos.
btw loshon hora also gets many shiurim.September 14, 2008 4:38 am at 4:38 am in reply to: Tznius Standards #651224
mariner – count me as having gone to that same yeshiva too. I too believe in shulchan orach. I too don’t think our religion is outdated. I too believe that no part of our Torah has become irrelevant. I too believe that tznius today is no less relevant that it was 2000 years ago.
Its too bad you don’t believe in these Torah values. Maybe its time for you to get off your liberal high horse and return to your religious roots.September 14, 2008 3:19 am at 3:19 am in reply to: Lycra long sleeve shirts #645810
yeah. And if you talk too much about Shmiras Shabbos, it is overkill and people will disreagrd Shabbos? And if you talk too much about loshon hora (as we constantly hear about it) is it overkill? And will people then talk loshon hora because it was talked about too much?
Why is it that some people are specifically allergic to hearing about tznius? Could it be that these are the very same folks who disregard tznius in public and don’t want to be called to the carpet about it? Don’t want it to be realized for the sin it is?

illini07, I don’t particularly recall posting less-than-nice words about you, but surely can bring truth to those words of yours.
No needs for mechila from me, and presumably vice versa, if necessary.
Have you ever displayed any less-than-nice words to others on these boards? (Surely well-deserved, no doubt…)
