Be sure to contact Dan for his generous offer if you are in need due to his advertisement.

ďIf anyone would like to contact me and discuss things like a mensch rather than make bad assumptions via anonymous internet comments, my email is published, but here it is again: dan@dansdeals.com

If you booked this program because of this ad and need help for the remainder of Pesach, please contact me as well and Iíd be happy to help.Ē

I donít always see eye to eye with Dan but he is a real mentch for offering to help with something that is clearly not his responsibility. Iím impressed.

Apparently this

Update  that is not exactly true
On the Mexican Passover list they listed Splenda as it was kosher for Passover not kitniot
And her husband decided 6 days into pesach to find out as he heard in the states itís not kosher for Passover
And the masgiach spent all day looking into it and after hours of research he found out that Mexico made a mistake it is kosher for Passover but kitniot so this guy and wife flipped out
If there is an unintentional mistake there is nothing wrong is was taken away and everything went back to normal for over 300 people
Except this couple
: According to Gabriel Boxer of Kosher Guru, the viral tantrum by a woman at the Kosher Luxus pesach program in Cancun was triggered be her discovering that there was kitniyus at the buffet. [Not Sarcasm]

And a couple of years ago there was a mentally ill woman in Lakewood  who ran into shul to scream at her husband in an embarrassing state of attire. Mental illness is sad. There is no reason that this was posted for all to see. She is clearly mentally ill and in need of help. This should be removed. Whomever posted this on Facebook should think of how they would feel if it was their close relative who was ill and someone thought it cute to post a video. Rather say a short kappitel of tehillim. How sad that we entertain ourselves with anotherís illness yet we all laugh at the foolish brisker who loudly makes a beracha meshaneh habriyos upon seeing a midget. My friends, we are doing the same except without even a ďfrummeh cheshbonĒ. Sad.

These videos and all of the jeering comments on FB are now making the rounds on social media and those who posted it and commented on FB will have to answer for the many thousands of Jews who it was eventually spread to. Straight out of the chofetz chaim. Iím no angel when it comes to lashon hara but this kind of thing is a red line.

Lol. These viral videos always manage to get completely fabricated stories attached to them.
ETA: Based on a new video it seems this was the true story.

***VIDEO SINCE REMOVED*** There is somebody in the comments answering on behalf of the program without saying so. Definitely in damage control mode. Seems like they served splenda which was approved by the local community but which contained kitniyos. And the Bas Yisroel in the video wanted adult dinner (7:30pm) to be served at the same time as kids dinner (6pm). HaShem Yirachem (her and us).

Like everything else in this digital age. So sad, the yetzer hara's latest tool being used to its fullest and arguably worst potential.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

What does this have to do with the rest of the post? Why do people always feel the need to say this? Would we otherwise accuse you of being a blind follower without any credibility?
If you don't care why would you comment?

The context is that I feel that although on the whole Dan does a good job of staying clear of halachikly questionable stuff, and does a pretty good job where it come to the hashkafic stuff as well  - and Iím on private groups where Iíve seen some really problematic stuff being pushed in the name of MS and the like- some of Dans posts do cross the line from price mistakes to areas that Iím not comfortable with as a frum Jew ( just as an example posts telling readers ďyou can call and say xyzĒ etc. even if not completely honest) and I have probably made my feelings known at those times but I give credit where credit is due and I think Dan deserves a whole lot of credit for his offer to help these folks. I donít know if I would have gone that far and I admire his sense of responsibility and caring for other Jews who are in this predicament.
