Eating people is parve because of קם ליה בדרבה מיניה I would assume

The Shulchan Aruch says חלב אשה is Pareve, the only issur is Marris Ayin.

Does lo sevashel gdi apply to human? I wonder if Shu"t Mimamakim talks about it.

All Halachic questions aside, can we get a straight answer to the important questions:

Also, what kind of people does one get for $12? Are the pickles and slaw included?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Even more important, can we get an address so we can add it to the dating spots thread?

When the guy shows up late for the date, he'll get the cold shoulder.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Obviously pint-sized
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

I use the +abc trick, and change it for each place I donate to. I've tracked some sharing, and at least it's easier to filter.

Yup, it makes me sick when places do that (with no recourse other than to block), and the smart places trim out the plus and everything else (e.g. they trim lcm+abc@gmail.com to lcm@gmail.com).

Additionally, I never know if its the organization at fault, or a rogue employee, 3rd party, the platform, hackers (unlikely) or someone else. So withholding donations isnít always fair. Asking isnít an option because if they even answer theyíll always say no, and might even suggest youíre falsely accusing them.

I get endless organization spam from constant contact and the like. I donít really want to hurt the organization but the harassment is annoying. If itís shared email lists that each organization uses separately, then blocking some doesnít prevent the others (without the plus trick that can be circumvented, or some other aliasing solution that canít be circumvented but is then annoying to use.

This is why they continue to do this. If you spam me I will mark it as spam.

Perhaps Iím too nice, because Iíve seen (from afar) what a headache it is to deal with when your staticIPs end up on spam blacklists.

The problem is; when most tzedakah organizations end up in spam, you start running out of places (that you're comfortable) to give Ma'aser to.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things

That has not even come close to being a problem. Spam emails are not a good source to find places I am comfortable with. By them spamming me they made uncomfortable with them.

I use the +abc trick, and change it for each place I donate to. I've tracked some sharing, and at least it's easier to filter.

I used to do that but stopped. I've just updated my policy to no online donations whatsoever. If someone approaches me in person and tells me that's the only way to donate, and I want to give to the cause, I tell them to put their own email address there and forward me the receipt.

This past week someone tried to get me to donate online, and wouldn't accept no for an answer. I gave him cash, but he kept on insisting, eventually, he realized what a fool he made of himself, and wanted to give me back the cash. I refused telling him to give it to any cause he finds worthy, but he just left the money on the table and walked away. A day or two later someone approached me for the same campaign, but this time with a card reader in hand, I said "sorry, I don't give to this cause" (which is regretful because as a policy I try to never say no, the amounts might differ, but I try to never turn away anyone asking for tzedoko, especially if it's a yeshiva or anything connected to supporting, enhancing and/or spreading לימוד התורה).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
