Comments Can be Deleted
LostMessiah March 30, 2016
Dear Eiruv Rav and Our Readership:
We appreciate you reading our posts, commenting on them, sending us tips and ideas, even formatting changes. We listen and take what is said to heart. We would be grateful if you could spread the word that our page is here, that Shmayra’s vision is somehow continuing; and that we are forever in his debt for all he did, to try and improve our community by bringing out the sins of many of our leaders.
We have decided to remain anonymous because many of us are from a community from which we would be shunned if our identities were brought to light. Many of us know first hand what is happening within our communities and want to stop it from happening. Many of us are women, who are already at a significant disadvantage within the frum community. And, many of us want to give our children better lives than we have had.
We will say that our contributors are international in scope. Our researchers come from all walks of life, both Jewish and secular. We are a fairly large group. We do not, however know the person to whom Eiruv Rav addressed his comments earlier and think it likely that whomever he is would not want that association. If there is such a person and he is attributed to our site by you, we hope he will come forward and assist us with our endeavors.
We reserve the right to delete comments when they contain an inordinate number of profanities, such that the comment becomes distasteful or outright insulting. The use of the c-descriptor for a woman’s genitalia is one such word that we will not accept in our comments, particularly since so many of us are women and there are better ways to make the same comments without that word. However, to the person who found it necessary to use that word in his response on our behalf, we thank you. Please re-post, just stated differently, if you would not mind.
We reserve the right to delete comments which can only be construed as blatantly anti-Semitic or potentially violence inducing hate speech. We reserve the right to remove comments when we feel the identity of the commenter is best left unnamed or was accidentally divulged. Finally we reserve the right to delete comments which might be slanderous or libelous.
We note that our position is not necessarily the position of our commenters but the comments, barring those reserved for deletion, are appreciated.
Should you want to send us tips, help, assistance, information and do not want to comment, our email contact is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, to those of you who have expressed the desire to contribute financially to our cause, we have not yet found a way to accomplish that task, though we appreciate the offer and likely could use the donations. As soon as we figure out how to accept donations and maintain our anonymity, we will let you know.
