Every since posting this, I've just been inundated with e-mails. I can't keep up. Please stop!!

Not.

I haven't received even ONE suggestion yet by e-mail for a post.

Is anyone on this forum anymore?

Hello?? (hello, hello, hello... echo....)

Oh well, the forum was a nice idea.

Since you personally stopped posting the forum hasn't been the same.
Maybe you can come back and add to the vitality of the forum.

(There has been loads of great stuff on the forum, just very little of it seemed to be the style you are looking for. Except for DOV, but you check all of his posts anyways.)
I am not big enough to not do something I WANT to do because I know it is wrong, but I've been around long enough not to want to do many things, even though they are really enticing at the first glance.

Yeah. Get back on the forum! What's the matter with you, man?!

Sorry, Rabbeinu.....just a gut-spilling moment. (yech)
Admin put these lines here cuz he likes 'em:
"The heart needs to be broken when will-power is not enough"
"Get off the 18-Wheeler and onto a tricycle!"
"The heck with me, what can I do for you?"
"I do not particularly care exactly which "lav" suicide is. I'm not interested in it for other reasons!"

I wish I could spend more time here, but my partner works me like a horse...

For example, we had a 2 hour meeting today with the head of Jnet (who is in Israel till tomorrow), a big Rosh Yeshiva and Roshei Kollelim who are looking to bring filter solutions to the American community here in Eretz Yisrael. Then we got back to the office and followed up with some donors on their commitments, then we spoke to 3 web developing teams in the U.S and Israel to try and find the right UX/UI guys for our website design, then we wrote up a page of all our web-site elements for these guys to review, then my partner went back home while I continued working... I spoke to a guy in Canada who wants to try fund-raising for us and guided him through our presentation, I spoke to a designer in my community who may be the perfect guy for the web-job we need, and I spent two hours on the chizuk e-mails.

It's 12 AM now and my wife is complaining that I don't spend any time helping her in the house... AAARGGG. And you guys want me to spend my day on the forum like in the "good ol days!?"  ;D

Oh, and tomorrow we have a meeting at 9:30 AM in my office, and another meeting at 1 PM in Bet Shemesh....

It's hard to be guard.  :D

See Rabbi Sher book. He was offered to be Rabbi of the White Shul in Lorwrance, one of the most prominent Shuls in the USA, and Rav Aharon Kotler told him he is staying where he is at the head of the Aguda.

I think Guard is helping many more people by being busy with this stuff on a communal scale. As far as I know none else is so deeply involved. It is "ei efshar lasous al viday acheirim" 

Keep it up.

Guard, u forgot we r "addicts" we just got addicted to u
I dono what zchus u got or what good deeds u did prior to forming this community, cuz in my lifetime I don't know anyone else who did such a gr8 thing for hashem,

Now a call to all addicts here, all of the above is good for the fun, but harav reb guard really needs out help, let it be welcoming the newcomers, which got better recently, or by finding some wealthy people who can open their hearts & pockets to fund the building & maintaining this "mikdosh maat" & of course by composing the chizak emails, which is what this thread was actually opened for (any1 still remembers?? We have gone too far off topic)

Ya, who am I talk, what do I do to help him, but u know what chazal say "gudal hmasas....

Thanks for all the love and support everyone. I'm going to have to agree with Holy Yid. I really have no choice... But besides for helping many thousands of more people through our work (off-forum), you guys will also be benefiting shortly. Just hold out another 6 months or so and you'll all be the beneficiaries of a much more professional network, i.e. website/forums/chat-rooms/ many new features, such as new hotlines for guidance all day, and new filter services. The fund raising and web development that we are doing is not just so we can reach more people, it's for YOU.

Guard,
Are you asking us to delay instant gratification  :o  for long term benefit?
Hmmm.... >
That's a hard one.
Is it really worth it  ?


;D ;D ;D
