What I found annoying was the way they were zooming in on people in the middle of shmoneh esrei.

I left after the dancing but it should be noted that only one speech was in Yiddish to that point.

I would also comment that there are women who learn as well, whether daf yomi or otherwise, with the blessing of Talmidei Chachamim, and even if the Aguda doesn't want to publically recognize that reality, they would be wise to at least tone down the "wives of learners" rhetoric.
This is the Agudah and they are going to go with their way of doing things.

The guy was singing Ani maamim right after the tribute to the kedoshim and the guys in bleachers behind him or waiving like showing up on a sports screen.

Yeah I'm a little sensitive.. I get it, it's a big simcha

Why are you always so concerned with what other people are doing? Why does everyone have to get the same meaning out of something that you did? Why ruin such a beautiful and moving experience for yourself worrying about other people? I didn't even watch the screen most of that performance, I had my eyes closed thinking about what it meant to have almost 100k frum Jews of all stripes gathered to celebrate the continuity of Torah and Torah Judaism just 75 years after Hitler tried to wipe all of that out. The video tribute and following songs were one of the most moving things I've been a part of in my life. It's not often you get to really feel what it means to be a part of something as truly great and awesome as klal Yisroel and I wouldn't trade that experience for anything. Honestly I find it sad that whatever meaning you got out of this was overshadowed by what other people were doing. I hope that by the next siyum you are as taken in by the beauty of what we've accomplished as a nation as I was that you won't even notice what someone else is doing or not doing.

He is expressing his personal opinion that people that are celebrating the torah should not act that way.  Maybe this post will be read by a teacher in a school that can influence his students positively what it means to be respectful for the TORAH.

Rabbi Yoel Gold. He didnít go up to the dais. He stood surrounded by the heroes of his inspirational story.
Just because your a great motivational speaker doesnít mean you deserve a spot on dais (no offense to r gold) Just good to know

I figured. Maybe someone will see this and next time tell them not to do it.

I think he meant that he didn't speak from the podium.

Is it possible these kids never went to a baseball game and are really excited?

Not am excuse and disgusting but nevertheless a possibility.

I was just trying to put it into context and as someone said that I'm always critical.

I thought it was incredible . The survivers etc and Ani maamin..  and then kids waiving.. sorry to rant

You know you are putting words into my mouth... Btw a ke'h 94 year old aushwitz surviver sits next to me in shull.. trust me, it was very deep and emotional.
