@Alex it probably lingers until people get the needed tag score, or until you bring it up where a mod sees it and fixes it. Done.

Q: The underlying reason for Shemitat Ksafim?

Al BerkoI've researched the topic for a while and I could not find a single interpreter discussing the reason (טעם המצווה) for canceling loans after the Shemitah Year. I know it is a Machloket (see my previous question) whether the loans are canceled or just forbidden to claim, but for the sake of this ...

@IsaacMoses That's the second hot question on that topic in a couple of days.

There I was, standing in front of those ashes, thinking about the meaning of life, after seeing all those gas chambers and crematoriums. I was feeling very sad. Then a small group of y...

Mi Yodeya got a shout-out from Joel Spolsky in his speech at the WeAreDevelopers conference recently. He was mentioning how some of the smaller communities always have a comment welcoming someone the first time they ask a question, and he used Mi Yodeya as the example.
