Does anyone have a link for the subaru test drive? I clicked locate a dealer on the subaru main site and when the local dealer page came on no test drive offer popped up.

As I said in that thread repeatedly, I was specifically referring to someone who booked that cruise intentionally to take advantage of those services, not from random people who happen to be there.

Obviously none of that would apply to random people who happen to be there, who we were happy to take care of.
Ok. I will leave it at that. Thank you for clarifying.

It was never my intention to have this back and forth conversation with you in public. I was going to pm you my feelings after I read the previous thread but wasn't sure you would ever see it since your moniker asks people not to pm you. The only times I have gotten in touch with you privately was when I had something for you.

Just to be clear.
You think that it is OK to specifically book a kosher cruise with the intention of using their services without paying for it?
Why is it ok to think that someone would specifically try to do this? It couldn't be a coincidence? Aren't kosher cruises on regular ships with regular passengers that may or may not be practicing Jews?

Please explain exactly what I said that you disagree with.

"I'd have very mixed feelings.

There are literally thousands of hours of logistical work that went into organizing our small kosher cruise. It would seem to be unfair if someone came along and took advantage of a minyan without helping to defray the cost of making that minyan on a boat. A minyan is a small part of the cost of a kosher program, but it's part of the package and getting a torah onboard and obtaining space onboard is no small feat.

OTOH how do you say no to a fellow Jew wanting to daven with a minyan?

At any rate, this happens at Pesach programs all the time where people either sneak in for minyanim, lectures, and entertainment or they ask if they can attend without being part of the program. I think it reflects poorly on someone who would put himself in that situation."

"You may think you're being a good Jew by sneaking in and davening in said minyan, but I'd posit that you are not. These are businesses offering a minyan to meet their paying clients needs, not community shuls. You are gaming the system at another Jew's expense."

Not sure what you misunderstood here.
There were other Jews on our cruise and we invited them to Shabbos meals, kosher food, etc.

The problem would be if there were Jews who specifically booked passage on the cruise while paying 5 figures just to take advantage of their services without paying the small premium for those services.

That didn't happen, but it could have been quite awkward. In the end we had an amazing array of Jews from all walks of life and it was truly special.
What I was referring to were the comments that you made on the older "kosherica" thread. I'm glad you let other Jews join you on your cruise but it doesn't take away what you had stated on the other thread. A Jew is a Jew and, in my opinion, should be welcomed to join a minyan whether they paid for a program or not. Everyone is entitled to voice their own opinion. I'm glad that you voiced yours but I was taken aback when I read it. That's all. I will return to blend into the woodwork!

I need some clarification please for NY. I was recently convicted of a 15 MPH over the speed limit ticket (using Lawyer Shua Gelbstein) with points being reduced from 4 to 3 and would like to know how taking the defensive driving class will effect insurance surcharge. This is the first point violation I ever received and my current DD class 3 year period expires in March. I called Hartford and asked them if they forgive first violation and they said "accident, not violation".  Will the new class remove said 3 pt. violation for insurance purposes or just remove the pts that can be accumulated by DMV? Never took the class before for point removal, just for insurance discount.
Sorry, in advance, for the long winded post. Getting nuts over this. Am not thrilled that I had to pay Gelbstein $350 plus pay for ticket now and pay for insurance surcharge for next several years.

I have an outstanding seat belt ticket from 2014 that has been postponed many times and the next hearing date is in October which will make the ticket 4 1/2 years old. If I am found guilty in October how long will the ticket stay on my record?
