I don't understand why this is a story to anyone other than the frum Jews. To them it's just some random guy behaving like a creep and lying to girls. How is that a story? There's implication of maybe some fraud with the part about the charity page, but no real allegation made. No claim of SA, etc. It's not a 'takedown' piece because this is not some public/famous figure of a high position to be taken down.
Very interesting point because until I read the article I assumed the focus would be on the irony of an Orthodox Rabbi, who would purportedly be above the NYC party scene, waist deep in it. But they really skipped that part. So I think there are 2 answers, A. Catfishing, and otherwise scamming multiple women, is kind of a big deal. There have been documentaries, TV series, as well as endless literature on the subject. And B. it's not that big of a news story. Traditionally, when a tabloid breaks a major story, most other platforms will have their own coverage within minutes. But 3 days later barely anyone else has touched this. So maybe it's not that big of a deal.

ive learn סי יז (a while ago) but honestly cant think of any...
there are many other סימנים in אבן העזר that would directly relate.

On the first page of his Sefer -
Quote
ג. אשה - יש שכ' שהיכא שהעגונה היא צעירה לימים ורדופה להנשא אז הנידון כבדיעבד ויש לצרף דעה זו להיתר

I don't remember anyone saying CWs book were inherently bad.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I've heard and read people saying that if you view some of the stories with the knowledge we now have you can see how some of them are quite manipulative

Probably could be said about any series of books if you try hard enough

Maybe, but his books were all about emotions. I remember finding a couple of the stories creepy even before the story broke.

The one that always comes to mind is the one about the kid sending letters thinking it's going to Chaim Walder.
But that can be the opposite. Not by him but by the person pretending to be him

Which stories come to mind by you?

There was a story of a boy that went to a visitor and he was uncomfortable and something happened. Thats where the story stopped.

He was on an elevator or something at an event hall and he went to one of the empty floors and something really terrible happens. Yeah I remember that one also when I was thinking like he was molested or something
