Any takers?

I bought one of these big bags of kettle cooked popcorn from the stand in hershypark, now before leaving I asked where's the hechsher so he showed me the window (as I knew from the previous years that it was kosher)
 The sign which has the signature of the rav who is the Mashgiach is dated back from 2016, so I asked him that question and now he's telling me that they didn't have a minute to change the sign (which I would take as they have no hechsher, what was funny he was telling me before all this the rabbi came and blessed all the machines so it's all kosher. ;))

 Would you eat it before contacting the Mashgiach?

I would not.

It wasn't implied at the outset that you are selling Seforim that were acquired for resale.

That being said, I knew one, and I'm sure others have heard of, or knew מוכרי ספרים that were תלמידי חכמים that actually knew the merchandise they were selling (not on the level of the Tzemach Tzedek, but at least some superficial knowledge of some, and thorough knowledge of others).

No need to get defensive, I'm not criticizing you, just suggesting some additional learning.
as I said....
do not fear he will find some sort about that too

have you ever heard of seforim stores? Do you think the guys that own the stores learn them all? This is seforim which were collected with the mind set to be sold...

Couldn't squeeze in a dental checkup and new batteries for your smoke detectors?
Or a DO?

Yes, but for your morning cup of coffee, would you pay the difference?
Yes. With the paper ones you need a sleeve and with these you do not

True, but would you pay that premium?

It's a paper cup.
There is a world of a difference between them.

Huh? it's the stigma associated with a kid at risk.
It's denial as to the very real mortal danger that their child is in.

Same stigma

Denial and stigma are not the same thing. Denial can and does happen even where there is no stigma at all. Stigma can be a cause of denial. That does not mean that denial must be caused by stigma. The denial that a parent has if a child is c"v at risk is often guilt and denial of their own failings whether real or imagined. Even if it is not due to anything the parent did wrong which may often be the case they will still feel that guilt.

Once again you seem to think emotional issues and addiction and medical causes behind emotional issues are all separate issues.
Please explain. I know of so many people who have family members getting help for various emotional and psychological disorders that I do not see there being a major stigma about that in Lakewood. Of course other communities may not be like this.

Here is a recent reoccurring and typical scenario: Parents of daughter at HIGH risk of serious drug addiction (i.E.. emotional issues, rebellious, no family or school support, basically living on streets, zero self esteem etc etc etc) will not allow her the help she needs because it involves a "goyisheh program"...

Yes, if cv she succumbs, it will be the "stigma" to blame.

That to would be the stigma of getting help for emotional issues etc not
the stigma associated with addiction.

אין בית אשר אין שם מת. So having an addict is one stigma. Seeking help is another.
I would think that is only fear that people will know about the addiction problem. This would mean it is the fear of the stigma of having been an addict which is preventing these people from seeking the needed help. The strategy for that may be to remove the stigma of being a recovered addict and not
break the stigma associated with addiction.
We should glorify those who OVERCOME addiction and respect them.

Stigmatize that family, the rav hamachshir, the caterer, the hall.
That I do.
