Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

We need a master list of users who can no longer post on JS. (If you want it to be completely useless, make a new thread on JS for it.)

@yfr bachur has a workaround. If you check posts by the user, you can see whatever they posted. Take that, Netfree.

(Now you just need to know who posts where.)

Even if I first reveal the loophole and then only pull the rug a few days later? (And besides, I use Techloq on my own computers.)

Anyway, stands to reason. If whomever decides policy at Netfree decided to removed JUST the JS section, perhaps they are also monitoring the boards. By the way, that means that if someone starts a discussion in politics that they don't like, or posts something against their policy, that board could go, too.

I think they blocked it.
Could be they didn't like the "Jewish wedding" topic going on there. :-\
so stupid anyway to appeal?

I did not see that topic. @AMH Was that a valid reason?

Maybe we can ask them just to block that topic...

What makes you think you're missing out anything? JS is dead
Jews ≠ Zionists
Palestinians ≠ Hamas
Satmar ≠ SatmarHQ

My experience has been that when Netfree has a shita, you cannot talk them out of it.
Call it a maala that is also a chisaron. (Two sides of the same coin.) That's why RYBs approves of it over Techloq, who are more flexible, while acknowledging that Netfree may not be enough for some.

Only Chase cards that have annual fees are able to transfer points to travel partners?

I can't think if all of those with AFs can transfer, but certainly those without, cannot.

Life insurance with preexisting condition... help
« Reply #9518 on: July 17, 2023, 03:13:36 PM »
Any suggestions on how to get a life insurance alternative for someone who was diagnosed with cancer about 9 months ago. Rare form and BH done with treatment and clear scans since. Term life insurance needs about 3-5 year wait post diagnosis. Are there any group policies open to the public? All suggestions appreciated!
