Um, why are you lol-ing? We're having a debate, not a comedy.
So glad you're so serious. So am I. But the comment I made was humorous. You don't want to laugh, then don't. I did. The comment was about me being on an ignore list, and not about bris milah. Just in case that gets twisted.
And second, maybe you and Arduinna haven't been on the RS board so much lately to see what's been happening over and over and over again. Several particular posters have been repeatedly starting threads that go the same way. Maybe the OP has a different slant than the previous ones, but the same arguments are put forth, and if you read the contemptuousness in them (smirking contemptuousness, with smilies, no less) then you'd perhaps know where the OP in this thread is coming from.
It is fascinating how variations on the line "those Jews are always screeching 'antiSemitism' over everything" is used to stifle discussion of blatant antiSemitism. Particularly when no one no one no one is trying to stifle discussion. The only thing anyone wants to stifle is antiSemitism. The fact that we Jewish mamas keep on responding with the same answers over and over and over might make it obvious that we're having the discussions, not stifling them.
The locked threads in CAC, Arduinna, are over discussions of bris milah there. They get moved to RS, which is as it should be. That's not stifling discussion, that's moving the discussion to the more appropriate place.
