I think the only method is to mercilessly ping all mods every day until one of them takes care of it.

Just pray that you get one of the nice mods, who will take care of if by deleting the post, and not that mod (yes, I mean you), who will take care of it by deleting your account.
If I was the mod I would've done it already!!

The Tulsa Race Massacre and Oklahoma's Jews

This is a great example of personal reality being different than a political and sociological discussion of racism. I believe that most frum people would do the same for their workers and neighbors today regardless of their political beliefs or opinions on racial issues.

Just Shmooze / Re: Wage Inflation In Lakewood

When Iím done crying for the big businesses that took advantage of their employees. Iíll restart crying for the schools that pay and treat their teachers like trash.
No one's crying for anyone. You can do a long-term study to find out who overpaid,who underpaid etc. The current scene in Lakewood is that of a business boom-town. It has rippling effects across many areas. Starting salaries for young inexperienced office workers is one of them.

12
My cleaning lady gets $15. Whatís the national average for an undocumented menial position?
Dunno, but compare that to a legal job and they're doing very well.

13
The large healthcare companies have raised the bar for entry level salaries. It has spilled over into other jobs as well. Young substitute teachers are demanding crazy salaries and getting them because schools are desperate.

14
Plenty of women working for years in large companies and not making 6 figures. Whoís getting the 6 figures that youíre talking about?

Imo itís about time the wages increase to an amount thatís equal to cost of living.
Not talking to manager levels, but starting salaries for office jobs in Lakewood is higher than average. National average for office managers is around 20/hour. They're offering that to sem grads with no experience.

it is so important to understand that prison should never be used as a punishment, rather only to prevent a dangerous person from roaming the streets (drug dealer, abuser, thieves etc). Prison destroys a person and has a major negative impact on the family as well.  The people involved will for the rest of their live be filled with guilt that their negligence & careless mistakes caused such harm. Feels to me that those who advocate for prison in this circumstance (and yes also meron) lack in core understanding of Yiddish hashkofah (think if it was your child/brother before responding that its misplaced rachmonis)

This story while extraordinary, actually is the basis of how we should look at this tragedy and would hope all of us would respond in the same way: https://www.chabadgn.com/templates/blog/post.asp?aid=2456346&PostID=95712&p=1



Thank you for linking that amazing story!

I only meant to say that one should not assume negligence. Accidents do happen and it is appropriate at this point to dan l'kaf zechus. If there is currently evidence showing carelessness or negligence then at this point the discussion is moot. Regardless of the teva, it would seem that Hashem is sending us more messages to do teshuva and cheshbon hanefesh. Seems unreal that just a little time has passed since Meron and another tragedy has occurred.

Disgusting. Hate speech online is one thing. I didn't think it would get this bad.
THIS is where one can say "we" have descended to the level of our enemies. It's bad enough that we are forced to defend ourselves; this behavior is not acceptable.
