I am not really one to preach morality to anyone else, especially since what I'm about to say applies no less to me than to others.
There have lately been a few threads here, notably here and here where what appear to be unjust accusations and rude - even vile - language is the norm.
For those of us that are religious Jews, some of these posts amount to a terrible desanctification of G-d's name. "Be careful with your words", advise us the sages of the Talmud. May I be able to live up to that myself.
This forum is called the "Israel Forum". Yes, it's like native turf. But let's try and keep our own neighborhood clean. When it's called for, there's no need here to fear to come out swinging but hitting below the belt is still not allowed.
Let us all pick our fights. Let's also remember that it is easy to misconstrue other's emotions and intents as they appear in text that is often quickly pounded out on the keyboard.
OK, back to our show!
