Don't know / can't vouch for whose behind it. Perhaps someone else can

Woah, very powerful.

And then I scroll down to the comments to see the what is clearly the mother of one of my best friends commenting. He was niftar this past sukkos over chol hamoed at age 32 without any warning or explanation. And now I learned from her comment that apparently they eventually found out it was something similar to Shua.

The mother of one of your best friends was 32?

What's wrong with you?

Clearly its his best friend who was 32. Are you in such a rush to correct his English that you can't even have a little emotion?

Calm down, the post wasn't clear. I also thought he meant the mother and that she was 32.

If I'm being perfectly honest, I noticed that, was too lazy to come up with a better/clearer way to write it, and left it as is assuming people would figure it out on their own.

Thank you for explaining. I thought for a moment that maybe you meant the sister or you meant to write 52 or something.

Apparently Ntorch was extremely offended.

Did you ever sit in a daf yomi shiur where the maggid shiur is reading from the gemara and he says R' Yochanan instead of R' Yonasan? Everyone is following along and knows that he meant to say R' Yonasan, but some guy has to correct him and make him repeat it anyway, as if this was krias haTorah where every word is m'akiev (even though names sometimes are not, but I digress).

This is like that 10x over.

No one really believed that the person who posted about the death of his best friend was saying that his best friend's mother was 32 years old.

Even if she had a kid when she was 18, that would make his best friend 14...and no one would think that was the case.

Time and again people are picking at other people's posts when there is no reason to do so...much the like maggid shiur who get corrected when he accidentally reads the wrong word when reading from the gemara.

I usually keep my mouth shut, even when I hear the same guy time and again correct the maggid shiur.

But here the video from Simi talking about the tragic death of her husband and the comment to the video by the woman who is clearly in pain about her son suffering from the same death and when the poster states that this woman is talking about his best friend...unless there really was a hav'amena that the mother was 32 there is just no reason to make the correction.

Rant over.

Ahem...

Do you realize that right now, you might be sounding like the one that keeps on correcting?

I would guess that most people read the post as it was written, saying that the mother is 32 years old. Thinking that maybe the poster is a teenager, or that there was some kind of typo, and moved on. One DDFer pointed out how the post actually reads, which allowed the poster to correct it, but you seem to get ballistic and hung up on this.

Chill. These are tragedies that no-one is downplaying.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

To be clear, it was just ambiguous - it didn't specifically read the other way.

Reported: a second survivor of the Parkland shooting committed suicide. Very sad.
