Interesting , came here to post the same story.

It's a copy of this https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/leticiamiranda/amazon-orthodox-jews and it doesn't say anything that's not already known.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Well, it does add that Chassidim game the system by hiring SEO experts and copywriters, and that they are super creepy weirdos who can't look at customers eye to eye so they need to sell online.

I'm actually wrote something about this. Publishing next week.

Sure did. Fits their narrative well.
Sigh.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Did the times always have articles that were this poorly written or is this a recent thing? I'm not even talking about the content...

Buzzfeed actually spent a few months on that article.
The times probably spent a few hours.
Live forever or die trying.

Puke


This.

Also they quote the same 2 people in every SINGLE article on BP. It's insulting to me as a subscriber.
