There are actually a ton of those around here. I know a good many personally.

Core?
They don't write English
Am talking about the guys that get their news from Kol Mevaser. And if they are on the internet h"y it's in the Yiddish forums.

C'mon. There have been all these, and more. And I've been to plenty DOs - in restaurants - where half the crowd wasn't eating a thing.

Something new to me. See you next time!

What % of chassidishe ppl have smartphones? ( Of course there are but the number is under 50% IMHO )

And those that have how many are on DDF? And many of them aren't the Frum ones.

I think he's on to something.

Either way popcorn works anytime me me

In order to participate in JS discussions, you need a minimum of English writing skills. And from time to time you see them in CC broad.
And this talking about men. Chassidishe vablech aren't represented on DDF.

And the topic of this thread is woman.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Ever heard of a desktop computer?

What do you call core? You think there aren't any chassidishe yungeleit who read/write English?

I listen to Kol Mevaser- where else would I hear interviews with Alan Dershowitz or Nick Muzin or with Yanky Meyer from Misaskim on what he was doing in Manhattan after the vehicle ramming terror attack? It's the best source of first-hand news, IMHO, better than any news site.


And this talking about men. Chassidishe vablech aren't represented on DDF.

Some of my points I actually heard from "Chassidishe vablech". I'm wouldn't shoot off my own opinons without hearing what actual women have to say about it. After reading the TOI post, I just wanted to hear what people from other cirlces, who also read the heimeshe magazines, have to say about it.

And I must say, the poll has been very enlightening.

OK, we could go in circles for a week here. Yes, core. I know a ton. Some do write English, some don't, and some will show a very marked improvement if you compare their early DDF posts with the later ones.

Moving on...

No one said "aren't any" it is still a small minority. It was said relative to this thread. We are looking to understand the part of society that has brought the no woman at all into our publications. They are not properly represented here.

We all know good things come out of DDF JS discussions.

Bottom line, we gotta figure out a way to make all DDF’hers feel welcome at DO’s. :)

Do they start with regular english and then switch to English, or does their regular english improve? Or is starting in English and switching to the official language of DDF - regular english represent improvement?  ;)

ETA: if the correct answer is the latter, I guess I have quite a bit of improvement to work on. Should of started earlier  ;)
