A lot of things are discussed online frequently that never come up IRL. Probably because we interact with very different people online than we do IRL?

I work with Lubavicthers and people part of non-Lubavitch communities in Monsey, Far Rockaway, Flatbush, Teaneck, and a couple more I'm forgetting. I get asked questions about Lubavitch almost daily. I can't recall one about "meshichistin" or even the topic in general.

I mean this conversation started only because someone posted a video which seems to be trying to rekindle those inane discussions

I'm not complaining that people are talking about it, I'm just saying it's not a "thing" anymore for most.

That trailer was .... something else. There will always be people who obsess over it, either by taking sides to one extreme or the other, or by

You’d be surprised  :)

Maybe they think you’ll take offense?

Lol, not in the slightest. There's plenty of ribbing going on in all directions.

Ahem. Even when writing יום הילולא the Rebbe is referred to as נשיא דורנו.

And:
I'm curious, when there is no נ״ע/זצ׳׳ל after the Rebbe's name does it mean it's Meshichist material, are they trying to be neutral or this is how it is universally?

As I said:


@yelped given all the evidence (assuming you watched and listened to the videos I linked to) is one way more plausible (more "normal") than the other?

I didn't watch the videos. You said "the Rebbes words", I saw a couple of seconds and saw it wasn't the Rebbe, so I closed it.

I don't think it's plausible that the Rebbe said he's going to live forever and be the Mashiach-designate after he dies, too.

So you chose to follow the Pravda editorial board for critical review. There's a lot there, mostly from Chassidim quoting the Rebbe, but also direct audio of the Rebbe.

Exactly, it's being goaded on. Not a surprise it's then discussed.

Which part of the Torah base from Tanoim, Amoraim, Geonim, Rishonim and Achronim are you calling the Pravda Editorial Board?

For the meshichistim, why didn't the Rebbe say yechi or put up yechi signs about the Frierdiker Rebbe?
You never went through the sichos of 5710?
