Sorry I can't like your post :)
Well, I pushed the like button.

You sound like some people I know, who stay under the Medicaid limit their whole lives, even though they can be making millions. Aspire for goals, but never let goals hold you back.

I can't weigh in on that, but I can't forget this post of yours that has changed my Shabbos seuda ever since.


Divrei Torah for Chukas-Balak.

This is the last week that I'll be doing this. When I first started this before pesach in response to this thread, I was shocked by how many people used it, but as the lockdown has eased usage has declined a lot and bh people are getting their Torah for shabbos elsewhere, so I don't think this is necessary anymore.

If you're one of the people that still uses this and you want to continue getting it, you can PM me your email address and I can get you on the list that I get most of these sheets from.

I've decided on my 3,000th post, so here it is. (Technically this is JS so my 3,000th post is somewhere else, but close enough.)

I'd like to use my 3,000th post to give a public thank you to this amazing forum. Obviously the deals and travel advice here are great and have enabled me to take trips and build amazing memories with my family, but over the past 4 years I'd say what I've appreciated even more is the great community here. I can go on and on, but to highlight just a few small ways that DDF has come into my life:
  • I met an established DDFer and ultimately became his first chavrusa ever. We went on to learn over the phone from hundreds of miles away, and a year later he came to Toronto for a siyum in person- his first siyum ever. I consider him a true friend today.
  • I met another longtime DDFer who was in the process of moving to my hometown, and over the next couple years we become real friends, spent many shabbos seudos together, and have helped each other in more ways than I can remember.
  • On erev pesach in the early days of COVID I posted that a relative of mine in another city had serious medical issues and had just gotten covid, and was struggling to find an oximeter. Within a couple hours a DDFer had offered to lend me one and I had an Uber pick it up to deliver it to my relative.
  • Through DDF Iíve had the privilege to be a small link in the chain of spreading Torah to others' Shabbos tables, as @YitzyS reminded me above.
  • In my short time here I've seen DDF raise money for war rescue in Ukraine, run its own matching campaign for COVID victims' families, put together an ad campaign to warn people about credit card farms, and countless other acts of crowsourced kindness like this and this.

I could go on as I'm remembering more while I type this, but I think my point is clear- thank you @Dan, @jj1000 and really everyone here. You've created something great.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

  • Location: As always, silence is NOT an admission of agreement on DDF. It just means that people lack the stamina to keep on arguing with made up "facts", illogical arguments, deceiving statements, nasty and degrading comments, and fuzzy math. - @yelped
