The FAQ is for our own sakes as much as for newbies’

Hi chaverim, we’ve all noticed a surge in the number of repetitive questions that can be charitably described as naive and come in various degrees of good or bad faith. I’ve also noticed the surge in responses that can themselves be charitably described as curt, but often veer into rudeness.

May I suggest that if you feel the (very relatable) urge to tell someone off, that you spare yourself the anger and just direct them to the FAQ? The mods put a lot of effort into it and it has a ton of great answers. We should use it more!

This is such a stressful time for us and my heart goes out to everyone in their grief, anger, and fear. Rudeness serves nobody – neither ourselves, nor the askers, and unless we decide to make this a closed sub, it is a very accessible and very public face of Jews for people from around the world. For better or for worse, we are representing world Jewry here and we should be mindful of this.

Thanks everybody for your constant enlightened, thoughtful, and enthusiastic engagement in this community.

Shabbat shalom, all you electronics users!
