| Apology

I would like to apologize to Shmuly Chein and his family, for the recent Mazal Tov posted. The Mazal Tov was maliciously submitted to us and was posted in error.

In light of this disgusting incident we will implement more stringent and thorough Mazal Tov verifications, which will delay our publishing of Mazal Tovs in the future.

Again our apologies to Shmuly and his family.

    Listen, it happens. Besides running my 2 professional sites, I am a volunteer moderator on an online group where a sick prank has been going on for over 2 years now and last week I inadvertently let a crank message through myself.

    CHInfo did the right thing and apologized for an honest error on their part. The only one who has to be ashamed is the idiot who sent the misinformation in the first place.

    If the culprit is indeed found, I think he should be given plastic scissors and about fifty yards of green felt. Then, he can sit in the new mikveh dressing room until Purim and make Purim decorations for playgroup kids. After Purim is over, maybe he can get himself a life!

    (**)it happens… it happened on Shmais a number of times.. on shmais only excepts mazel tovs from the people them selves… Maybe mazel tovs should only posted once they are verified…

    kudos to Webby for taking the fall instead of just ignoring it…

    Shmuly; it’s a segulah…

    Kol Hakavod to CH.I for doing the upstanding thing. It is shameful that people would do such a thing but somewhat gratifying to know that a site like CH.I has the mentshlachkeit to stand up and set the record strait.

    You did the right thing Webby – mucho proud of you. Whatever it is, water under the bridge, and I am certain it will bring mazel and lots of naches to the Cheins….soon.

    Question is who do you can, and whom to trust when there is a mazel tov ehh?

    As a great fan of i am a bigger fan now.

    just wondering, how can you be more stringent? maybe ask for the telephone number of the person sending it to you. or if its a family memmber ask that you can call them or who the shadchen is.

    btw i remmber this once happend on shmais some time ago.

    Shame on you for calling
    such a name. And to Shmuly Chein
    you should only have simchas.
    and for the person who worte
    why post his name, i say its because
    then in shul he will walk around and people will be saying “mazal tov shmuly..”
    And ofcours to itchack that was a funny one!!
    And by the way, should not put the guys email on because he is probaly ashamed of himself.

    Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated….’Mark Twain’ zecher tzaddik l’vrocha.

    I say that because 100 years ago twain travelled to israel and wrote very pro jewish articles.

    The prank on the chein family was mean spirited. I hope that god hears about it and brings many simchos to their family.
