if we dont sell pasul mezuzas, they'll buy paper ones.

Brilliant. The whole "mivtzoim" excuse is a red herring anyway. Sure, they may be a handful of people who wouldn't buy a kosher mezuzah  if they had to spend more than $30 on a mezuzah. By all means, have a few on hand for that eventuality. But thousands upon thousands of these mezuzos have been sold to people in our community who would have spent more had they been better informed.

How many people buy Kfar Chabad esrogim vs yanover? That's even more Halachically acceptable and more of a matter of "hiddur" than these mezuzos.
Nice glad your father is pro this, perhaps he should also go a make a video about the disgusting things rabbi raskin says about the other sofrim. Maybe then you will see the truth how some sofrim all they care about is making their own name by putting down everyone else.

What Wolf did was terrible, so you're going to copy him?

Machon Stam didn't / doesn't need any pr and has nothing to do with Wolff's video.

Maybe the other sofrim need to own up rather than run to a din Torah?

I don't have a horse in this race and don't give a hoot, but this is in general is as the native Americans would say "bad medicine"

If the other 7 stores were / are an issue, bais din is not an answer. You follow corporate America practices and apologise, recitify and fix

Another question might be, is your tzitzis and talis kosher ?

People pay alot of money for Niputz L'ishma, and will either tie it themselves or someone who they personally know a d trust.. pretty standard in the litvish B'nei Torah community..
Particularly for those who wear Techelis there's supposedly alot of fraud..

"would you use a non Rambam eruv to carry?"

Ftfy
JK

in a certain city in europe there is an orthodox shul run by a rabbi who previously practiced as a reform rabbi in america.
unfortunately, he does conversions and weddings in his reform style.
when confronted; he replied: if we (orthodox) wont do it for them, they'll go to reform.
so he does reform work for them.

if we dont sell pasul mezuzas, they'll buy paper ones.

I feel like I've been going back and forth way to much on this and tried to summarize my thoughts here, if anyone has any interest in reading for longer than 3 seconds:

Wow, they were right when they said the DDFers are aggressive against newbies.

Wow, they're right when they say the people on DDF are not welcoming. SMH.

I'm not sure if you're being serious or not, but this is the silliest thing I've read in this thread so far.

Great points though I generally don't like prose written as theater.

My issue is that machon Stam baseline mezuzos are $40 and 10/10 held up. Maybe lone Wolff point is, you can make cheap but good ? I dunno.

You made me go underground for over a year and now again you go after me.

You know what's worse than the Chilul Lubavitch of being caught selling Posul Mezuzos to unsuspecting buyers? Embarrasing someone in public.
