Wow, nasty soul.
This ugly person has some unresolved issues.
Don't ask what the horse was thinking, especially a hateful horse. He's hateful on the family size, can be due to more people = more gases emitted, or simply because more frum yidden produced.
I assume the comment was censored.
Yep.

On this post: https://www.dansdeals.com/advertisement/matchathon-tragedy-caribbean-help-federman-family-virgin-islands/

"Surely there was much thought before embarking on creating a family of ten children. May that thought process and solution provide the support they all need at this time!"

You want to ask what the money goes towards, while maybe not sensitive I understand it. But a comment like this. I don't understand what low life can talk like that.
I recently heard similar sentiments mentioned elsewhere. It might have been in a place called Sdom.....

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.

Might be a long tale, but in short it was a fire trip.

But tbh, when all was said and done it left a salty taste in his mouth.

Great Shiur from Rabbi Reisman. Haven't heard it in years, but I remember clearly that he says something like: "Many in the past have dreamed about going back in time, like Shnooky Shapiro, The Twilight Zone, and H.G. Wells. In fact, in the Marvelous Middos Machine, Shnooky Shapiro goes back in time and runs out of gas, but there was no unleaded gas at the time, so he got stuck. Tonight, let's go back in time to Sedom..."  ;D

How it started:
וַיִּשָּׂא־ל֣וֹט אֶת־עֵינָ֗יו וַיַּרְא֙ אֶת־כׇּל־כִּכַּ֣ר הַיַּרְדֵּ֔ן כִּ֥י כֻלָּ֖הּ מַשְׁקֶ֑ה לִפְנֵ֣י ׀ שַׁחֵ֣ת ה' אֶת־סְדֹם֙ וְאֶת־עֲמֹרָ֔ה כְּגַן־ה' כְּאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרַ֔יִם בֹּאֲכָ֖ה צֹֽעַר׃
Lot raised his eyes and saw the entire Jordan Plain, that it was [an] abundantly watered [place]; before Hashem destroyed Sedom and Amorah, it was like Hashem’s garden, like the land of Egypt, going towards Zoar.

How it ended:
וַיַּשְׁקֵ֗ף עַל־פְּנֵ֤י סְדֹם֙ וַעֲמֹרָ֔ה וְעַֽל־כׇּל־פְּנֵ֖י אֶ֣רֶץ הַכִּכָּ֑ר וַיַּ֗רְא וְהִנֵּ֤ה עָלָה֙ קִיטֹ֣ר הָאָ֔רֶץ כְּקִיטֹ֖ר הַכִּבְשָֽׁן׃
He [Avraham] stared at Sedom and Amorah, and the whole land of the plain, and he saw the heavy smoke rising from the earth like the smoke of a furnace.

People say it was the riots that ruined it:
וְאַנְשֵׁ֨י הָעִ֜יר אַנְשֵׁ֤י סְדֹם֙ נָסַ֣בּוּ עַל־הַבַּ֔יִת מִנַּ֖עַר וְעַד־זָקֵ֑ן כׇּל־הָעָ֖ם מִקָּצֶֽה׃
The men of Sedom, surrounded the house—young and old alike—all the people from one end [of the city] to the other end.

Although the riots must have been symptomatic of a deeper moral decay that underlied the explosive turn of events.

I see this all the time, btw. It's generally not in this context, but when people are collecting money for weddings or medical expenses or other things for their large families, or when they are eligible for tuition subsidies, people complain that they should have thought about how they were going to raise them before having so many kids. Always bothers me.

Slightly different though, because those expenses are predictable and need to be planned for (for those of us who don't have such high levels of bitachon). So it at least makes logical sense.

But saying it after a rare event occurs to a family just doesn't compute.

Maybe not before, but immediately once they do they really should plan.

Planning for something that you know will come is not al tachkor achar asidos. Rav Meir Stern told me when I had 3 babies in the house "Right now you will be paying three tuitions in 5 years from now"

Let's just say that this event isn't even something that one could or would purchase insurance to protect against, and it goes far beyond financial issues.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Would he extend that to say that one should desist on having additional children until the finances are assured or at least likely?

I do agree with you that it's not a fair subject to bring up in this thread. While needing to ensure financial arrangements before having children is debatable, both sides are defensible. This original comment is not, in the slightest. (If there was criminal neglect, how many children they had is irrelevant, and if there wasn't, their family size is equally irrelevant. Insinuating that they were related and effectively blaming the parents for being responsible for this tragedy with zero evidence to that effect is horrific and despicable.)

I presume he would not. I agree that all of those shirts of comments are out of place especially in a one of case.

This thread is about comments not tzedaka.
