Sometimes I Need To Learn...

...to just keep out of it if the person involved doesn't really seem to want help. And especially when they seem to think that bashing entire groups of people is the answer to their problems.

(Yeah, I know that's somewhat cryptic to most of you. Those who know what I'm talking about will know).

Ahavah Gayle,

Thanks for your post. I took it down simply because I don't want to direct any additional traffic there (and while your post didn't have a direct link, it was enough info to give someone a lead).

I hope she finds happiness and can come to some sort of happy reconciliation with her situation.

The OTHER blog seems too bizarre to be true. I can't believe you wasted so much time responding to nonsense. Even if it is true, you accomplished nothing and still responsed to nonsense.

Hi Wolfe,
thanks for contribuating at the other blog. The comments you made were wise and to the point.

Perhaps they will not listen to you, but at least your comments prompted further information that showed that the situation is very complex.

PS: @ahavah gayle:
Does it not strike you that this could be a girl running away from abuse, according to some details published on this blog?

What you got yourself into is more than surreal-- I wondered what took you so long to realize it.

What's really disturbing is the Facebook entry: he ain't no Lubavitch (aside from the vort being in BP and not CH); and the juxtaposition of the vort pics with the rest of the albums is troubling to say the least-- not so much from a frumkeit or tznius perspective-- more from a concern of an unstable personality 'tantzing auf beider chasunahs'. What's mind-blowing no matter which side you take is the boy's family's position-- how and why did they ever get into the middle of this?

I'm a casual bystander when it comes to blogging-- this is the first time I felt such a strong crossover to the brick-and-mortar world of people's lives. This feeling results not from idle curiosity of salacious voyeurism-- since I stumbled across the blog, the whole situation has been rattling around in the back of my brain; this seems to be a case in which NEITHER side is legit. I would say that further participation is simply feeding more fuel on a fire of unknown proportions and nature.

Wolf, I saw your comments. They were thoughtful and kind. You may not be able to help that mother, but your words might be of help to others who stumbled onto that site.
