Well, if @Something Fishy would move it there, he would have to move it back. וחוזר חלילה

I finally figured out what happened to ddf

JJ asked for everyone to like @Something Fishy's post.
Embarrassing this doesn't have 100 likes...

Then, @YitzyS  explain the hesitation to do so
Many DDFers are hesitant to like posts because they are afraid their likes may cause it to top your 10,000th post, and that would put DDF in disarray...
Only to have @yesitsme ignore the warning
your honor
Then, as predicted by @YitzyS the forums went haywire
Does anyone have an idea to help @yesitsme? He seems to be stuck in a time loop in 2017 and is trying to send us signals.
Okay, guys, any recommendations? Should we call Dr. Middos, Doc Brown, or HG Wells? We need to get yesitsme back without him running out of gas or getting lost in time. Anyone have experience with time travel?
So, I looked for a solution to fix the problem, and a solution does exist :)
So it looks like there's a recount feature, which will recalculate and correctly allocate likes; and any duplicate likes/unlikes will be consolidated into 1 like/unlike.
Except....

It doesn't work :(
Recount feature used to work, but now it just crashes DDF and I need to restart the AWS instance to fix it. Haven't tried that in a while now.
Are we going to be stuck like this forever?? >:(
Maybe it's just me, but I thought that this post deserved more than two likes :(

I absolutely agree, but I already gave it one of those two likes. I can give it a few more, but if there's ever another recount (READ: CLAWBACK), it will go back down...

I'm not posting this here for more likes, rather for more exposure, as it is something I think many would appreciate but I buried it in Randomex's Randomness thread...

These are the words of the ריטב"א in Rosh Hashanah (IIRC daf 33b)


The Ritv"a is essentially saying that music that a previous generation may have enjoyed can be depressing to us. (Basically, that music styles legitimately change over time.)

Background: The Ritv"a is answering a basic question in Rosh Hashanah.

The requirement of Shofar is to blow three 'yevavos', each predicated and followed by a tekiyah. However, there is a machlokes what a 'yevava' is, with some saying it's a shevarim, and some saying it's a teruah. Thus, we blow both shevarim, teruah, and shevarim-teruah.

Asks the Ritv"a, how did this machlokes ever manifest? Why couldn't everyone hear what their father did, and just do the same? Was there ever a gap in history of shofer blowing? (A similar question is asked about tefillin -how did the machlokes Rashi and Rabbeinu Tam ever manifest, why couldn't Rashi open his father's tefillin?)

The Ritv"a answers with the above excerpt. The requirement is to blow a 'yevava,' a wail. But the way people wail - just like taste in music - changes over time. Thus, even though our grandfathers may have cried as a shevarim, maybe today's generation cries as a teruah. Thus the minhag is to blow the way we do.

It doesn't. He wasn't addressing tefillin. I was just mentioning that a similar question is raised about tefillin.

IIRC, Rabbi Yisroel Reisman, in his book "Pathways to the Prophets," brings a few answers to the tefillin question. I'll try to look it up later and post.

Here is Rabbi Reisman's answer, from this book.

Can you please add a setting to lock likes count, I like the clean number of1200 and I'm afraid someone is going to ruin it for me
