I can’t speak for others, but I for one would like my children to grow up with respect for Gedolei Torah and Daas Torah. This means following all the time.

If we wink at some prohibited behavior, we may develop an “it’s OK in the closet” mentality. And then, not everyone will distinguish between a ‘harchaka’ and pork. (see comment on the last post)
If the ‘oilom’ needs these advances, are we going to take an ostrich approach?
This can lead to worse outcomes than confronting an issue head on.
How many of us, and our kids, are checking out the tsunami on the internet? What else appears on the opening or intermediate pages, and how are we protecting ourselves?
Imagine what we could do with the technical prowess in our community.

What's daas torah? I haven't found that term in any sefer.

Anyone who says it's important to respect da'as Torah.

First of all, I've married off a few, but I really am not enough of a high roller to flaunt the guidelines flagrantly - so, (unlike the internet, knowledge and news) that's not my nisuyon.
