I haven't daven around them much recently but maybe i appreciate it a little more than you because my father has been teaching in a sefardi yeshiva since I was in about 5th grade
I actually daven with them quite often for convenience purposes and I am fine with it.
And as a side note, my wife being an accountant didn't make me enjoy math any more in the slightest

If you spoke to your wife the way you davened (if your part of that crowd) you would likely get beaten as well as possibly no wife anymore!

LOL! What about the Leon Redbone nasal hum that they do?

Pesach...
If pesach makes you go otd, I'd say you're most of the way there.
If you don't care why would you comment?

If that is what has the ability to push you off the edge then you need to do some serious soul searching

As opposed to the previous 500 posts - those are all valid causes to go OTD?

I think most people mistake this for the "Pet Peeve" thread.

+1 was thinking the same thing, most of the "religious" things are just the things in Judaism that are underappreciated generally from a lack of knowledge and understanding of what it really is...I think shalus seudus is the perfect example.

All the rules and regulations. This isn't the IRS.

In a way, this is very profound.

If you think about it, why do Frummies clamor for pizza right after Pesach? Doesn't it make a statement that says something like "We were severely deprived of proper food, and now we are pushing and shoving to get some"?

yes, to show that we were abstaining for mitzvah reasons, not taste. Different than standing in line pushing for pizza.
