Easy to spot Jew/non-Jew in JS?
Yup, usually the one who doesn't have a really strong opinion on a controversial halachic topic, like, say, the kosher switch.

Can we take this off topic to discuss whos a Jew! This will help us turn this thread into a Chabad discussion as I recall (from reading) the Rebbie had been involved in this matter.

Who is saying that it's an issue?

Do you guys find the jewish-centric stuff annoying?

The topic is How Many Non-Jewish People Use This Forum.  But then you ask if people find the Jewish-Centric stuff annoying.

It's pretty obvious to the most casual of observer that this is a Jewish-Centric site on the whole.  As a non-Jew, I understand that and it is what it is.  I definitely don't find it annoying because again, it is what it is and if it was annoying i'd just never come back.

In my opinion, I would say it is more about irrelevance.  What airlines have the best kosher food, what airlines will reheat my kosher meals, where to find the best Chabad in Zimbabwe, what hotels in the Democratic Republic of Congo have regular keys for Shabbos.  That stuff is irrelevant to me, so it makes the trip reports and such less helpful/useful.

But definitely not annoying.  That would be petty on my or anyone elses part.

If it's not on a Jewish topic what does it matter to you what religion someone is posting on a forum?

I assume he is referring to for Jewish related topics, but I feel myself that some people give them selves away better then others.

I’m referring to religious discussions.
The priest in a big NY hospital used to build the hospital succah every year because the “Rabbi” had no clue about it & there would’ve been no succah.
