You're so invested in this free-for-all that it will take a while for you to see the down side.

Then perhaps those people shouldn't be reading them. Or they are easily influenced in general. Etc.

Not every person or blog is equipped to be mekarev everyone.

On reflection, readers of blogs might find that anti-Torah viewpoints have occasionally osmosed into their own minds.

Ram, it's an interesting but well known debate. Do you engage or avoid?

Is Kiruv ok?

BTW, if you engage most of the poskim, the current response is YOU and I and EZZIE shouldn't be here on the Internet.

Some of those voices are just alienated, who just want to know that they're being heard. Not necessarily agreed with, but heard. And frankly, some of the communal defects they point out are real and have impacted them seriously. And we would be better for fixing them, rather than trying to sweep them under the carpet.

BTW, don't take my word for it, take a look at the results. 1 - They felt included. NO complaining or tirades on their blogs against the JIBs. 2 - For the most part, they didn't win. Even in 'their' categories, the more middle of the road floated to the top. 3 - There is GREAT value in achdus.

Of course its not all religious. But should you tout something with no standards?

SaraK - Thanks :)

Ram - Why do you assume that the J-blogosphere is all religious? While a good fraction is, there's a giant spread among them, and there are times when the atheists make better examples for Judaism than the frum ones. The JIBs are just about all-inclusive, and the atheists play a nice role - on this blog and others - in adding to the J-blogosphere, even if I completely disagree with their conclusions.

Sorry, I'm less euphoric than you are, for this reason:

Some of the "wonderful" community bloggers are open atheists who should be given no slack or encouragement at all---especially no JIB categories dedicated to themselves.

Is it such a neighborly day in this neighborhood that there is no need to consult with poskim about this policy of inclusion?



Mazel tov!
