@IsaacMoses Interesting.

I'm considering flagging this comment as "not constructive." It doesn't really say all that much about halacha, does it?
Because non-vaccination does harm to others through the weakening of herd immunity, such a prohibition would be better off being eliminated in whatever way is possible. — Almo 6 hours ago
About Igros Moshe:
that's one of the things that are most fun about the Igros! Its like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get. — user6591 28 mins ago
@Shokhet fair enough

....someone just starred a whole bunch of my messages.
....this question could be an interesting one:
Q: Mental Telepathy

DovidIn Rabbi Immanuel Schochet's introduction to the fundamentals to proving religion. He mentions mental telepathy as a phenomenon that although uncommon does exist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tY5Qzo0Kdfo -In the early section he makes that claim.I am tired and having a hard time finding the ...

....is judaism.stackexchange.com/q/29612/5323 a duplicate of "Am I Jewish?"?
possible duplicate of "Am I Jewish​​​?"Shokhet 3 mins ago
1:23 AM
@Shokhet Read the comments. The Q seems to be asking not whether the person's Jewish but whether the person is in another category, called zera Yisrael.
@msh210 Question edited, close vote retracted. I guess this is part of the reason why we encourage editing the important bits into the question itself, rather than leaving them in comments.

.... can someone (moderator‌​?) ask mevaqesh to come to chat? ....I think he's a valuable user (currently >1K rep, member for 14 days), but I think we need to talk to him about the propriety of some of his edits (the ones that have been discussed in chat recently).

@IsaacMoses you linked in Bam to an article that answered this question.
@YeZ I did?
@IsaacMoses Yeah. I'm bad at doing chat searches, but I think you directed it as a comment to AAAA that he might find it interesting.
Something about mixing pronunciations.
@YeZ lo matzati
I love it. I love it. I love it whenever a new user pops up out of the blue and starts delivering quality content.
@IsaacMoses me either. Maybe it wasn't you.
5:19 AM
@DoubleAA Re: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/53452/… don't go revoking my rhetorical license
@Shokhet You can. Leave him a comment with a link to chat and ask him to stop by sometime. You can even create a room for you and him and link him to that. Be sure to explain how chat works and how it's ok to leave something and come back later.
@IsaacMoses But it's such a good parallel.
Q: Are there any sources that prohibit childhood vaccinations?

Isaac MosesThe consequences of depressed childhood vaccination rates in some American communities, in the form of a building measles outbreak, have been in the news lately. All public schools and most private schools in the United States require children who will attend (and who are medically able to recei...

I removed a bunch of comments from people essentially saying "But how could you?" Let's try and keep the discussion focused on the Halacha.
@IsaacMoses I think it was a hirhurim post by R P Berger about layning @YeZ
@DoubleAA I was quoting James to demonstrate that he'd been preceded by Scimonster
@DoubleAA Thanks for your moderation
@Gabbai @msh210 Didn't these use to only be the parsha sources posts?

@DoubleAA if it's wrong it's my fault, not @msh210's. The feed was broken when I found it, and I went to the web site and found the RSS link. I didn't realize I should be looking for an RSS link for a subset of the content. Please feel free to fix!

2:08 PM
I seem to recall that @MonicaCellio (or maybe someone else?) developed a standard comment template for new users who seem to think their in a discussion forum, saying explaining that we're different. Is there a canonical source for that? (I want to incorporate it here.

3:12 PM
@IsaacMoses I seem to have left my auto-comments template in my other browser, but here's a recent one I tweaked from my template:
> Welcome to Mi Yodeya. We're a little different from other sites; this isn't a discussion forum but a Q&A site, where we reserve the answer space for answers. This doesn't answer the question that was asked, so I'm removing it. Please check out our short [tour]. Thanks.
@MonicaCellio Thanks. You've never posted a template like that on Meta?
@IsaacMoses no, and now that you mention it I should have. Oops. For that matter, is the auto-comment userscript known here? It's really helpful for managing common templates, except for that whole "in-browser" thing that means I have to maintain it on all computers and in all browsers and, demonstrably, don't do a good job of that.
Q: AutoReviewComments - Pro-forma comments for SE

Benjol No more re-typing the same comments over and over! This script adds a little 'auto' link next to all comments boxes. When you click the link, you see a popup with 6 configurable auto-comments (canned responses), which you can easily click to insert. This script was inspired by answers to thi...

Oh hey, remote source -- except I don't know how to make the required jsonp (what's jsonp?).
@MonicaCellio You mentioned it before. I am now using it. :)
@MonicaCellio I'm pretty sure you've mentioned it in here before, but I've never gotten around to trying it.
... which is silly, because I post a lot of pro-forma comments

@Scimonster wow, less than a month ago and already I forgot? Sheesh.
JSONP or "JSON with padding" is a communication technique used in JavaScript programs running in web browsers to request data from a server in a different domain, something prohibited by typical web browsers because of the same-origin policy. JSONP takes advantage of the fact that browsers do not enforce the same-origin policy on <script> tags. Note that for JSONP to work, a server must know how to reply with JSONP-formatted results. JSONP does not work with JSON-formatted results. The JSONP parameters passed as arguments to a script are defined by the server. A typical JSONP request is similar...
Currently reading more about that...
@MonicaCellio Do you have a pro-forma chat comment for posting that link each time someone mentions standard comments? Such autopilot behavior could explain your forgetting. :)
@MonicaCellio I haven't tried this myself, but i'm guessing it works like this. Get the JSONP content for your comments. (Open the ARC dialog, click import/export, then jsonp, and copy.) Paste this into a file with nothing else, and save it to a server. They recommend using Dropbox public storage as a simple solution. Open up your JSONP page online, and add ?jsonp=callback to the end of the URL. Copy this URL. In the ARC dialog, click remote, and paste your URL.
Tell me if it works. :)
@Scimonster ah, thanks. If what the author of the script means is "put a file out on the web somewhere matching these formatting rules", I can presumably do that. If he means "run a web service", I don't think I can go there.
@IsaacMoses ha, cute. But no. :-)
@Scimonster thanks. I'll give that a try (from home, at some unknown future time that might or might not be before Shabbat). I have plain old web space available, so I have a place to put it that's not Dropbox.
3:45 PM
Anyone want to check my transcription here? The image wasn't so clear, so i made my best guess.
@Scimonster Y"K. Looks good, except for חש"י. I think the first letter there is a ת, and the acronym is for "tefilin shel yad."
@IsaacMoses That makes much more sense.
@Scimonster And you need to RTL the period at the end so it's at the right end, or just take it out
... "correct end," that is.
@IsaacMoses It was at the right end. :P
4:18 PM
@DoubleAA True. I might do that later.
@IsaacMoses Flag marked helpful, comment gone.

Q: Is this 90 year old mummy "not dead, just meditating"

I didn't realize that we had . Interesting....

....there seems to be a common belief that for something to be Jewish, it has to have been originally Jewish. See this question and this comment. Why do people think that?

out of curiosity - any reason this hasn't been removed as NAA? The first line acknowledges as much - it is a response to my post, not an answer to the question.
