Kiruv websites are obviously exempted.  When Aish.com takes down its site, we can talk further!

Rage,

A mishionary once approached on campus while I was becoming frum, and said "all you jews are goin' to hell for not believing in yushka." I said "you mean, those who accept yushka will go to Heaven, and all those good jews who don't will go to hell?" He got all excited, thought he caught a fish, and beamed "THAT'S RIGHT!" So I said to him, "WHY in G-d's name would I want to go to Heaven when all my friends will be SOMEWHERE ELSE?!"

Really, I said that. If you've heard it in a joke, I'm the one who started it. I just hope they don't carve that on my matzeiva...

Anyway, how good are you in chess? We'll need some LOOOONG games....

I noticed the web address for kosher eyes from there I started looking around and ended up here.


MosheW, thanks, that's interesting. Does kosherEyes have a link to us?


No, though it’s possible that they once did.

I am in the USA and I saw an add on Yeshiva World. It took my a few months to finally come on board. I was trying to stop all by myself. We all know what happens when we try that. Boy am I glad I found this site and blessed be those who help make it happen. I am 4 months clean. It is one of the miracles of חנוכה.

Sigh...I once played chess with someone who had the idea that to be a good chess player, you had to think REALLY long before each move. I'm talking, at least 15 minutes per move. I lost my queen a few moves in because I rushed my moves, figuring that that way, I could make the average time per move a bit shorter, and finish that one game before the year was over.

And as far as the ban...i agree with what many others have said - when the time comes that you're considering not going online at all anymore, you can ask a sha'ilah. Most of us ain't there right now.
