Re: Massacre in Las Vegas. You know how your aunt thinks that you are the ultimate miles and points gangster and would be shocked to realize that there are many, many people much, much bigger and better at this game than you are?

Well, I think it's the exact same thing with us even batting an eye at this guy playing through millions of dollars in an evening. I would not be too surprised if there were thousands of guys in this category within a 90 minute drive of Vegas. And I am sure all of them wear dockers and don't look rich at all.

In other words, my point is the fact that this guy was a high roller in Vegas is not such a significant "clue" here. It's representative of a whole category of people.

Just imagine that ch"v a DDFer did a crime and the media made a big to do trying to connect the dots by discovering some of his "weird" behavior. "Well, it seems here that he once made $200,000 in purchases in one year at Staples!" You know how "suspicious" that would sound to most people and yet how absolutely irrelevant it would be to you and me. You'd be thinking, "Is that ALL?"

"The couple became exclusive after that. Then a trip was planned to Indianapolis using points, miles and a Hyatt gift card previously bought on, a website geared toward Jewish communities."

Prison Anyone here ever been there?

Re: Prison
Part of my hesitation to share relates to one individual here who at one point tried to use my story to threaten me (i.e. he threatened to post details, which are readily available online, but nonetheless embarrassing) because he disagreed with my opinions.

That is horrible! To explicitly taunt someone who did teshuva, which seems very clear in your case, over his past actions is the epitome of ona'as devorim and beyond the pale.

You sure you want to leave that there? It's pretty identifying. I'm not saying because of the case - just that often people don't want to be explicitly identified on forums at all.

Re: Why do some Jewish communities prohibit women from driving?
That's what scares me.
Nobody could care less right now. OOT is nice like that.
We can only start to understand this problem when we understand why people are so scares to send their kids to school where a parent might wear different colored shirt, or have a longer sheital than their own mother wears.
Or where a women drives when they don't.
Etc etc.

Re: Would you have been better off if you never found DDF? Pretty much supported my family with MS/CC apps for a few years until I finished school and started a real job.

Just a lesson on how Hashem main gig at the time was Redbird. I had 13 cards and would buy prepaids for 5% CB and load 65k (5k x13) a month at Target. At 1% cost I netted around $2,600 a month. That together with other MS (and my wife's small income) we got by. Literally the very day I started my job, Target stopped allowing debit loads on Redbirds effectively ending the gig.

Re: free books for kids
So thankful that I live in 2018, so I do not have to deal with these ridiculous issues.
A. No need to have kids in 2018.
B. No need to get books in 2018, all online, kindle etc.
C. Judaism is overrated, no need for it in 2018.
D. No need for free stuff due to Trumps tax plan for 2018 you can pay retail for books.
E. No need to read to kids in 2018, that's what tablet time is for.

Re: Signal Jammer
Probably not. Some of it will probably involve the Rov hounding repeat offenders.

Just want to point out that blocking signals doesn't mean they won't be able to use their phones at all. It'll eliminate the noise perhaps, and some people don't do much on their phones that doesn't involve internet connectivity - but it's not a full solution. The only full solution is not to have it in shul at all.

There's a guy I see in shul every so often that davens shmona esrai in a minute or two, and then sits down and plays some sort of candy crush type of game. And this wasn't a one time occurrence.
I'm pretty sure Reb Levi Yitzchok would have something to say about that...

If someone's psak says not to sit next to a woman under any circumstances, he really needs to limit flying to almost never. It means being ready to ask politely once, and if not forthcoming to walk off the plane and forfeit the tickets.

Re: Gentlemen: Charge your shavers! Once a Lag B'Omer celebration was being held in Jerusalem. Several yeshivah students from overseas joined the gathering. They had grown beards during the Counting of the Omer, but had removed them on Lag B'Omer. The Gaon, Rabbi Yeshaya Osher Zelig Margolis of Jerusalem, told them: "Throughout the days of the Omer, you restrained yourselves from removing your beards. Today, on the day of Rabbi Shimon's celebration, you too are joining in the rejoicing. But how are you are marking his holy day? By trampling on his words. This recalls the words of the Megilah: 'Would you assault the queen while I'm at home?!'" My words bore fruit and the students resolved never to touch their beards.

Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai taught (Zohar, Vol. III, p. 130b): "Woe to those who extend their hands against the precious, sublime beard."

The Chafetz Chayim writes: "Removing one's beard (even with scissors) brings about destruction and blemishes [in the spiritual worlds] Above and removes the image of G-d [Tzelem Elokim] from one's face. By doing so, one uproots the channels of holiness from Above... as explained in the holy Zohar and the works of the Kabbalists.... Accordingly, any person with a sensitive heart should be in dread of this severe and bitter sin. If he transgressed, he should hurry to repent and should not pay attention to his foolish friends whose evil inclinations have overpowered their minds" (The Chofetz Chaim in his Kuntres Tiferes Adam, Introduction, sec. 1; ch. 10).

Re: Amex 2014 Terms and Conditions Here are some sevaras I'm thinking, although again, haven't really looked into this and many here have probably thought about it more than me.

1. CB, points on generic spend, seem akin to a rebate, which means you just paid less for the potatoes you were buying. Hard to see that as taxable.

2. Same with FF miles you get for flying. You just paid less for your flight.

3. IRS Announcement 2002-18 was about business travel. Your employer pays for your flight, and you get miles. If was like scenario 2, the employer would get the miles. So this is more like your employer giving you additional compensation in miles, but IRS was mochel it.

4. Points or miles you get from deposit bank accounts, seem most like interest income. Hard to see it as anything different.

5. MS from buying groups.  If you treat it as having paid less for potatoes, like under scenario 1, then your basis in the potatoes is less, and  you had a profit when you onsold it to the buying club guy.  So seems like either business income or short term gains (with various nafka minas).

6. MS from GCs. This is the weirdest one, because it seems irrational to say that your basis in a $500 GC is only $492. However, I can get past that weirdness, especially considering that you can trade GS below face value all over ebay.  So hagah atzmecha: If I buy a Target GC for $475, and then buy $500 worth of potatoes at Target, do I have income or gains of $25? That seems like an insane position to take.  But that's where the usual theories would seem to take us.  If you have a business, I would think very hard to argue that the money you are making wasn't made. But seems nuts that you have income everytime you buy a GC below face value and then use it.  At some point it may just come down to the optics.

These are just some boich sevaras--no idea how IRS thinks of this or what law is.
