Easy mistake to make, but not too hard to tell them apart. Only one of them will kidnap and dismember you for practicing the wrong religion.
When I get real confused I just start my comment "On DDF" and see if they go crazy.  :)
I just found a new supply of forks!

In order to participate in JS discussions, you need a minimum of English writing skills.
LOL
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

So all the 'religion based' decisions comes down to money. Interesting.

No, all the business decisions come down to money.

That does not sound like a reasonable response. See chava for example of what happens when you make whats mutar assur.

And I must say, the poll has been very enlightening.
In what way?

I went to a DO. Nobody seemed extremely uncomfortable, except after eating the flowers

Yada yada yada. The author of chovot halevovot was influenced by sufi islam.

The mishna in avot says a lot of things, ultimately we follow Hillel not shammai for a reason.

The gemara mocks extreme perushim, one with blood on his face because he closes his eyes to not see a woman in the street and walks into a wall.

You can pull lines from anywhere, to learn and know lines doesnt bestow one with seichel any more than repeating to me rogov's wine encyclopedia doesnt make you a wine expert.

So if a magazine wants to sell the maximum amount of copies, it goes to the "highest common denominator".


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.



Regarding chassidish people here on DDF: Actually, yes, most chassidish people in my circles do not have smartphones, or computers with Internet access, and are not posting on JS for the simple reason that they spend little time on the Internet, and when they do, it's for online banking, travel arranging etc. and not for "shmoozing"‎.

So they are definitely heavily underrepresented here. And many of these are the ones buying the Mishpacha etc., since they don't buy magazines like National Geographic, Time, or Popular Science, nor do they have access to online articles.

And for them, sending a letter to the editor is more of a hassle than those hundreds of people shooting off emails to the editor as part of a mass protest, so Mishpacha won't necessarily even hear their voices.

Also, it's not something they are going to fight over. If Mishpacha is going to go against their principles, they simply will stop buying.
Brevity may be the soul of wit, but floridity is its spirit.

A rav in what ? Guiding you through life or ruling on issur and heter ?

The direction of orthodox judaism lacks seichel, usually judaism was tempered to that of society, regardless of those that say judaism doesnt change, it does, it adapts.

A judge that gives down a ruling and the majority disagree... but the fact is, the masses are being misled. This extreme isolationism and the myriad of added chumros merely point to an empty belief system.

I keep hearing "there's no such thing as being too strict on pesach" oh yes there is, it led to a revulsion of judaism on my part and a long journey back complete with the fact that I will not go to my parents for the seder nor eat any shabbat or chag meal by them.

Extremists breed extreme opposition, I was not allowed to bring non jewish books in the house, this led me to hundreds of hours in the public library reading all types of garbage including Howard Stern's book.

True I would have not been as diverse and open minded had I not been forced to forge my own path.. but still
