This letter is such a load of bull, the deals here are at worst טעות עכו"ם, and there's no harm in taking out the benefit of a deal that's out there. And what ticked me off the most is his 'haskafa' argument, hashkafa is a magic word used whenever you can't bring any halachic source to prohibit something, it's a totally new concept that's being abused by many.

I don't want to get kicked into the is it ethical thread but don't be so sure of yourself.  IIRC that is only when he makes the mistake on his own, not when you encourage him to make the mistake.  Not to mention the cases where people do things which are much worse.

That is where the discussion belongs. Most of the things discussed on forums like this have an ethical aspect to them. That is why there is an ethical thread so every thread does not get lost in that discussion. I have said it once and I will say it again. Ethics and deals do not mix.

They do mix, in the same way that water and dirt mix, it gets very muddled and messy :)

the problem is that this is a Halacha discussion and you also say that Halacha and ethics don't mix.  Maybe we need is it halachik thread?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
