Thanks. That's what I found online but I didn't think that fit with the context in that thread, no?

It's being used in a sarcastic way. It's saying, today I learned that Yiddish has no rules because of a post on an internet forum even though I've spoken Yiddish all my life and learned the rules as a kid.

Not exactly sarcastic, more facetiously.

Thanks for the clarification. @Something Fishy sorry for having your sarcasm (or facetiousness) dissected.

Context?

Often means fear, uncertainty, and doubt in regards to marketing.

Too many people don't really want the geulah. They love their country and FB too much.

Facebook
I was watching the social network today and wondered if I would do in Eduado Saverin's shoes. Would I renounce my citizenship to save $1B in taxes?
In the end, I love my country and my family too much to do that. Never mind the debt owed to a country that allows someone to create a company like FB.
Israel isn't a be all and end all solution...
