Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* It's most likely not ethical.

BTW, I think this whole thread has no shaychus. Is it Ethical? I don't care! What does the Torah think? Is it al pi Torah - Halachically and Hashkaficly?, that's what I want to know. Ethics - based on what?  - farshtunkene Western Culture, that thinks there's nothing wrong with walking around halb naked. I think, Is it Ethical, is the wrong way for a frum jew to phrase a question if something is right or wrong. Is it Al Pi Torah?, that's relevant.
Sorry Mr. holier than though. I assume that is what everyone is discussing here, just the thread is titled is it ethical
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Sorry Mr. "everyone opens up to me, and tells me their deepest secrets", my point is that it's a bad title. And ppl post questions on it starting with, "is it ethical" alot.

maybe next time don't read it in a condescending way. ppl with self esteem issues read things in a condescending way, even though there is no tone of voice in the written word.

This is a secular forum. (which accidentally attracted a huge crowd of a certain culture/religion).
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Well, then it was mean of you to have a username that the intended audience of this forum wouldn't understand. :P

Are there never any situations where something may be permitted by torah law and still not be questioned if it's ethical or not?

Some times you don't need tone to tell if something is condescending, like this post where you accuse me of having low self esteem. Unless that wasn't condescending either

The low self esteem post was condescending to someone who ripped me - you. The post b4 that about "ethical" was not condescending at all - unless you have a low self esteem.

You got me. I have low self esteem. Thanks for embarrassing me in public and further lowering my self esteem

I bolded what I edited. My point is that if you modify the question to include hashkafa, I would answer - no. No harm intended.  :) :) :) :) :)
