I guess the Talmud didn't know about MS when it was written.  :)

There is a saying in the Talmud that is directly on point:  The Talmud is written in Aramaic.  There is an Aramaic idiomatic statement in the Talmud, “Tafasta Meruba Lo Tafasta.”  There are various English translations of this statement, but in modern parlance, the translation is, “If you grab too much, you get nothing.”
I just found a new supply of forks!

I would not put it that way unless you are saying the Talmud is wrong.  ;)

The talmid brings that about certain specific cases and not as a rule that will always happen. It just uses the saying to explain certain things.

Indeed. As are dormitories. Based on my conversations with an educator who had been a camp director and currently runs a Yeshiva with a dormitory, the best protection is for parents to talk to, and educate their children.

The best protection is not to send.

Many camps don't let the kids call home.  I definitely would not send there

Almost like saying that the most detrimental thing to a person's health is living.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Or maybe just saying "don't smoke"?

What are all you people smoking?  ::)
He didn't say kill yourself to avoid problems at camp. He said refrain from going to camp. Just like I said refrain from smoking!!!

Would you also say don't send kids to college to avoid drinking or other issues that come up in colleges?
