@Dan I am shocked that you let him bait you- what happened to not warranting a response?

Not to mention that your discussion and every other comment (stopped reading at page 9) has been about condoning or deflecting the main topic, responsibility of the community to stand up for what is not acceptable. Its not about money, image, flamboyant behavior, tzedaka, rabbonim, rich people poor people, kavod, tayvos. Its about what is appropriate and what isn't, and the community's responsibility and obligation to condemn that which deserves condemnation, in face of the shaming from people who say "how dare you speak, until you gave, until you made money. How dare you tell people how to live ect. ect. How dare you attempt to control something outside of yourself ect. ect. (see previous pages for the well articulated horse extrements)

I don't give a damn what you or anyone else does, that's the difference, I'm only saying what will be more effective than complaining about other people, focus on the things in your control rather than on the things outside of your control.

Having control over something is not the barrier for being something to be "my business". Nonetheless when the community speaks out they exert much control (influence) over others and their wealth.

You are assuming that most people that did something are "lying or deluding themselves", yet you likely never even tried out that thing.

I don't think a response is warranted in this case.

No need to defend what other people say your intentions are...

It seems safer to assume self image is involved rather then not.

Self images can be of all shapes and sizes. The Environmentalist or the guy that tries new things, or the guy that enjoys an awesome new car... Point is self image plays into everything.

Not sure what test driving a tesla has to do with anything here.

( I really care about the other conversation, I am just commenting here because you are in the thread related to purim parties...)

Go educate your children about what you feel is right or wrong, that will do a lot more good in the world than constantly complaining about all the wrong things everyone else is doing. Stop trying to get other people to do what you consider to be the "right" thing, it's never going to work and honestly, it's not your place anyway.

Not only are you wrong but you are doing the exact same thing you are accusing other people of doing, namely telling people how to act.

With regard to what specifically

Civilization and jewish culture specifically are strongly based on, and influenced by coexistence within a community. Throwing a big party for everyone to attend is very much everyone's business. It affects our community and everything about it.

I don't understand why everyone else has to tell people whether to indulge or not. However terrible it might be, it's their own business and they should be working on themselves and their taavos, just like we should all be working on ourselves and not others.

I do not think you are correct here.

according to the wiki TYP is 1.2-1.4 and QF is 1.35-1.45.

Is this outdated? shouldn't they move in tandem?

Free advice is something I would be wary about. I think there are alot of jokes to be made about that concept.

Why dont you open up to the forum the people here on DDF- which includes some very smart people with diverse backgrounds and some dumb ones (you know who you are). We the people would give you advice publicly, so it may be scrutinized, and thus reliable.

Is it less then a year old?
Do you have the receipt?
If yes
Then you can call Sony snd they will guide you through a repair center. http://www.precisioncamera.com/
You will only pay for 1 way shipping.

I fixed a sony camera for free back in 2017.
Its over 1 yr old. I do have the receipt (purchased on ebay).
Any ideas?

I guess I want to know if outsource or not, and how much you pay. My assumption was if you do it inhouse your big but that may be inaccurate.

How much do you pay for such a service and are you satisfied? Would you critique their service in any way?
