LOL!


Captain Kirk is goyish (even though William Shatner is actually Jewish).
Bookstores are Jewish. Cyber cafes are goyish.
Speed dating is goyish (even when Jews do it).

Thanks, everyone.
Just for the record...

I think I revived this thread since going dormant back in April of this year, after you directed me to the topic. All "fun" for me in any case, and interesting too. I'm always sorry when others don't feel the same way for whatever their reasons...

Me too.

Deleted several off-topic posts, including my own. Let's all re-read the OP and keep to the topic.

Ouch! I know questioning a moderator is something like wanting to talk to the Wizard of Oz, but is just a little off topic such a bad thing? Is being a fan of Dr. Spock on topic? Are other comments not so precisely on topic not born from comments that were, and do they not offer something of "flavor" to every thread much like condiments might do for food? Like maybe cream cheese on a bagel?

So bad to let them be in any case? Is the concern a thread might get too long?

May I also ask (and I think this is related to the topic and comments), do you happen to be Jewish?

You can blame me, LearnMe. I requested that my topic be closed when I saw that you were stirring up another debate on mixed marriage. That's got nothing to do with this topic, and it looked to me like you were just going to continue trying to derail this topic. Too tired to respond to you further. Go find some other Jews to bait.

Sorry. I've started a few threads of my own and read many a comment I might not necessarily agree with or approve of for what I would consider far more serious reasons, but I have never even come close to the thought of getting a moderator involved. Just not my nature, but it is my nature to recognize how different people are just that. Different.

I've got no interest in "baiting" anyone, unless that means inviting their exchange of opinion, as I think I was doing with someone else in that comment about mixed marriage. I don't really understand how different that is from the topic of your thread either, or entirely unrelated, but it's your thread and the "sensitivity" is profound in these respects.

I too get tired of dealing with the likes in some cases, but I'd never feel inclined toward restricting anyone from commenting about whatever they want to comment about, as long as it's a civil, mature and honest effort.

Why in the world would you get written up for asking that question?

My Rabbi will sometimes do the Spock/Cohen sign when I see him, because we are both Jewish and love Spock and science fiction. I think I will start doing that to people and see how it goes.
