Exercises in Role Playing

At a Tuesday night meeting of Vaad Hanholo (National Officers) of Agudath Israel, NY City Councilman Simcha Felder recommended that the distinguished assembled read an article on him available on the internet.

He said, dryly, "I know that the internet is forbidden . . . but if you have a friend . . ."

Later in the same meeting, Rabbi Avi Shafran explained the various components of his job. One small part: "We check countless sites . . . I mean, publications . . ."

Don't you just love hypocrites? Who show audio visual presentations which somehow aren't video.

Who doesn't use internet nowadays? Some with a filter, others without, but mostly all business operated by frum jews have web access nowadays.

I heard a very interesting takonoh made in Lubavitch in regard to Internet possession at home. The password should be 6 characters. The husband should have 3 and the wife should have 3 and neither should know the other's half. And since you need 6 characters, neither can access online without the other. Pretty good buddy system. Should be made public.

Prof, I've seen these programs. They simply don't work. Couples have a hard time standing up to each other when one is begging for the other's half.

I understand what you're saying but the concept is excellent. Let's say that 5,000 couples do it and let's say that only 1,000 are successful (the number would surely be greater). Isn't it worth making a takono to protect 2,000 people, 1,000 couples.
