So people shouldn't think they are chassidish
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

The better question is -Why is it only Chabad who still refers to non-chassidim as misnagdim? Especially today when gantz Klal Yosroel recognizes Chassidim?

While we're on the topic- why don't other chassidim recognize Chabad as "real" Chassidim even though Chabad was one of the original?

Discuss.

You gotta do better than that.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
