I have seen porch minyanim and not one has kept to being well maintained. Some which were originally sanctioned by a Rov were then spurred by that same Rov.
Not disagreeing with that

You don't believe it yourself. You are acting like a piece of garbage.
Control yourself

Guys, please don't respond to someone who thinks congregating is fine as social distancing will only lessen the amount of souls we lose rather than stop all death.

95% of the people understand the severity of the situation & take proper precautions, however there will always be the 5% or so that are not mentally well, in every aspect of life/decision making.
Its the nature of humans

Control yourself
When in one post you say that everyone here is getting only from blogs then say that you wish everyone would listen to rabbonim this IS controlling myself. Without control it would have been MUCH stronger.

During Kinus Torah (over Zoom) Rabbi Braun of the Crown Heights Beis Din addressed the issue. He mentioned various arguments made, and said that the Beis Din unanimously decided to forbid all minyanim, indoors and outdoors, without mentioning any reasoning, so that no one could say that the reasoning isn't relevant to him. He did mention several arguments that can be made against making minyanim, but the bottom line is that (sofek) pikuach nefesh trumps everything and is a sufficient reason.

However, he did say that name calling is wrong. He ended by saying that if someone believes that he can make a minyan in a totally safe manner he should know that it is עליו ועל צווארו.

I thought you have a thread for that.

Though the pun is appropriate.

עליו ועל צווארו = it is his own risk and responsibility. (Lit. It lies on him and on his neck).

Boro Park shuls are loaded with minyanim. Not all of course but plenty!
I think people are starting to believe that the worst has passed & everyone in BP has been exposed to it by now. My opinion

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

guys, EVERY point can be made without name calling, degrading, or ניבול פה.
These threads popping up daily bashing everyone that doesn’t follow your Rov, or your way of thought, are just ugly looking for this forum.
Everyone should please consult with there own LR and follow as he’s told.
Please keep your posts clean and remember that דברי חכמים בנחת נשמעים, and hopefully with some extra אהבת חינם we’ll get over this horrible מגיפה fast.

with or without a rav's approval?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
