Moderation Not Censorship…
I feel like I have to make a post about this about once a year. So here goes my latest attempt. This is a moderated blog. I’m not looking for Jerry Springer in the comments section. Therefore, if you cannot behave respectfully, you will find yourself blocked. What that means is, I will never see the inane and insipid stuff you say unless I actually dig through my spam box, which I do about once a month, because sometimes honest good comments get caught.
Yes you can spam my email account calling me all sorts of names, because of what you perceive as censorship. That is until I mark all of those messages as spam as well. Look I get it. You are a hater that cannot conduct yourself with dignity. That’s fine. There are plenty of other blogs that will take your comments to get their hits up. The truth is, I don’t want those kinds of readers.
If I did want those kinds of readers, I would simply be another Orthodox Scandal blog, that writes up whatever it feels like, and never bothers to post retractions when the facts are shown to be the opposite of what I thought. Which you will notice I have done(even this past week). However, insults, foul language and denigrating Rabbanim will not ever be tolerated here. If you can’t behave like a Mentch I invite you to find another blog to comment on, this one is not for you.
Now since much of this seems to be coming right now because of the latest post I made about the Aharon Friedman/Tamar Epstein divorce. Here is where I am at with this supposed assault. I have spoken to family and friends that live in the neighborhood. No one has heard of it. I have checked the crime blotters and police report databases and have found nothing. Today I called the Lower Merion Police dept(three times) and finally spoke with their Public Relations officer, Officer Walsh. He had not information immediately available, and said he would have to check with the detectives to see what if anything had/was/is going on. He promised, to check for police reports and if he found one to call me back immediately(he didn’t), otherwise he would give an official statement to me tomorrow(erev Shabbat, hope he calls before candle lighting). Once I have that I will post it here.
