Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others I’m not sure if Dan wants to discuss it on headlines or not, but people tend to bunch everything together and consider everything shady/shtick/scam/illegal. Sterling, farmers, buying groups, coin deals, MS,  a guy who opens a credit card for his Bro in law, a bochur who opens a cc and goes on a spending spree, and the regular family that has one 2% cashback Card that’s paid in full every month are all lumped together and before you know it, the entire Dansdeals is a scam.

There’s nothing illegitimate about chasing signup bonuses and paying off your balances in full on time.

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others You know what amazes me?
This thread has grown 93 pages in the last month, yet we still have no info as to what course of action any victims are taking. And I don’t believe any court froze any of the merchants assets either.

Re: Take Back Lakewood There are so many “minor” improvements that can be made by pouring just a few feet of cement. There are many places in lakewood where one left-turning car can hold up 20 cars going straight and there’s plenty of empty grass right there.. Also many developments like forest park and the woods have only one lane coming out, so right turners have to wait for left turners. It would seem very simple to fix that, but the city prefers to blame all the traffic on the state and county.

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
People are only human. Everyone lost faith in Dovid Hamelech yet he emerged perhaps even greater than he ever was before. In this generation we are quick to write people off. Great tannaim and amoraim had personal failures yet were towering spiritual giants.

I’m never shocked or appalled whenever there’s a scandal involving a rabbi and women. We all have taivos and there’s a reason yichud is assur for everyone, whether they’re a rosh yeshiva or not. To say “how could a rabbi do...” is the same as saying rabbis aren’t human, they’re malachim.

Re: Buying Group Master Thread
Not being able to cancel or change a BBY order, is that guaranteed not to get canceled?
IME you won't get a "we couldn't verify" cancellation, but a quantity cancellation can still come, especially with macbooks.

Re: Buying Group Master Thread
Just curious, what is the difference between the 2 types
My guess is:
We couldn’t verify=we’ve verified that it’s you again and you’re a reseller. This is usually within the first half hour and I believe it’s their computer, not human.

Quantity= this usually comes later and I believe is a manual cancellation.

Why do so many people still support the Mir? So last night the Mir held their annual dinner and it got me thinking: Why do so many people still support the Mir?
Obviously many people have tremendous Hakaras Hatov for the years they spent there.
But the Mir has changed radically with the passing of Reb Nosson Tzvi ZATZAL. It's under new management. The warmth, the achdus and the feeling of being part of something, that existed 10 years ago, just isn't the same today.
As it no longer has an open-door policy, many of those that attended the dinner last night wouldn't get accepted if they would be 22 today. And many of their sons won't be getting in when they become of age.
Rabbi Beinstock was shown the door. Reb Nissan Kaplan left as well, I'm not sure exactly why.
They both opened their own yeshivos.
Rav Berel Whitman was also told to leave, but I hear they let him back quietly.


True, they have thousands of people learning all day. But so do Chevron, Ponevezh and many other yeshivos.
And there are American yeshivos in EY like Eichenstein's, Feivelsohns, Rubenstien's, Yagdil, Reb Dovid, Reb Sholom Shechter.....
Why not support them?

Re: Why do so many people still support the Mir?
Why is it anyone's business what other people donate to. If you don't like it, don't give money. No reason to stop other people. Not to mention the lashon hara that's probably involved here, there are probably many organizations/mosdos/tzedakas that ppl have assumptions about, and the op didn't feel the need to "enlighten" everyone about all of them. He obviously has a bone to pick, and it looks childish and pathetic to do it on a public forum. Plenty of people have been rubbed the wr9ng way by different mosdos, and most do not feel the need to announce it to the world.
Sorry buddy, you missed the point.
This isn't about bashing random mosdos.
I'm calling attention to the fact the Mir is UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT. And few people have realized.
If you like the new management, then no problem, go ahead with business as usual.
