Anyway we can get a full translation of just what was written? I tend to frown on sound-bites.

Yochanan Lavie

Where is the pashkavil banning electric lighting?

seymour

blah blah I am sure they said the said thing about the printing press

David

Almost everything to these troglodytes is dangerous and evil. Perhaps they should make a short list of the permitted activities and products and leave it at that.

jancsibacsi

I agree theese mp3 rs suck youre blood and you will become a vampire .

Looks like some rabbi had a bad experience with Itunes. I feel for him, the user interface is just terrible.

Posted by: Texting while driving

yes, because if it were signed it would be oh so meaningful.

Or maybe the author of the sign just found out that Microsoft no longer offers support for their bomb Zune device

Korbendallas72

Tonight I'm gonna pashkvil like it's 1999.

Ayin roah

The next thing they will ban is the video cameras in BP and FB. I wonder why? What can you possibly already see on it? Do you think UV filters might help?

jancsibacsi

Ayin roah-Yes uv filters do help some, but i think they will need a stronger deterent possiblty one that will zap them to death if they as much as touch them:) whats nuts they are going crazy theese rebbes from having it too good they need some goyim to beat them back to their senses.

Rochel

MP3's with the rebbetzin's shiurs are not allowed?!? But otherwise I think of manicures and makeup. Oy, oy.

Does the Pashkvil include cassettes? Can I listen to the shiurs on cassettes?

A. Nuran

Rochel, just save the shiurs as .wmv, .flv, .aac or ogg-vorbis

Meir

Summary: "MP3 players, AKA "Sansas" appear innocuous, but can be harmful. Built-in radios. You can buy preloaded non-religious content. Some play video. Newer ones have wifi, turning them into Internet devices. Parents and teachers take caution. Perhaps it would be an appropriate sacrifice to go back to CD players and tape recorders".

Rebitzman

The are indeed a choking hazard.

seymour

can't I use an MP3 to listen to daf yomi white I am going to work or even the mikvha

thelionroars

molesters allowed mp3 not allowed

anyone see a slight problem

aguda protects molesters

Rochel

What about MP4s? Are those allowed? Can I still watch videos of 'The Desperate Housewives of Williamsburg ??

:)

western jew

Pretty soon, these groups of wayward "believers" are going to ban the fork and the spoon too.

grandpa

can't I use an MP3 to listen to daf yomi white I am going to work or even the mikvha

I don't see anything wrong with listening to the daf yomi shiur while you tovel as long as you take it off for one dunk.

בעל קרי

Well soon enough they will make us all cut our Dicks off!!

I can already see the posters on the shuls reading..... Who ever is still walking around with the געאסערטע טרפענע Dick "that is known to be the cause for all evil", shouldn't dare step foot in shul!!

Guess they'll have some inspectors walking around feelin up everyone to make sure that all Cocks were removed......

Get a clue

Baal keri, you are disgusting in so many ways. And not funny. You sound like a bad parody of Mad Magazine

בעל קרי

Hey! Why are you reading those Goiyeshe Triefeneh magazines??????

Great, Abbott and Costello, the comedy headliners for the nite. Come on boys, out with the zingers!.

The subject is: "Pashkvil Alert: mp3 Players Are Dangerous And Evil". Lets see you guys work the room with that one (and none of the old material now!) =)

---
Unsigned means no one of consequence would attach his name to the ban. But sometimes pashkavils are trial balloons.

I think this one will sink.

BTW, MP3's are worse than MP4s because of their trinitarian encoding. Apple formats are also forbidden because that is how mankind was tragically afflicted with the need to work.

For other formats consult with your rabbi (but only face to face).

mojo

aaron rubashkin's family are dangerous and evil. they have all morphed into MP3'S. Otisville will soon be filled with the sound of music.

Alter Kocker

Honestly, these neanderthals will have us living in caves while we eschew every technological device. No radios, TVs, computers, Mp3, and coming soon...indoor plumbing, toilets and toilet paper.

Jeff

Why are you here?

Brian

Can we track the progression of mid-to-late 20th century technology from the Pashkvils trying to ban them?
First the gramophone banned, then LP/Vinyl, then cassette tapes and VHS (although there was probably a competition at the Vaad as to whether to ban Betamax or VHS), the short-lived Pashkvil on Minidisc...

Gevezener Chusid

What is bad about them according to the poster is that they can access radio and video.

Real erliche Yidden use 8-tracks.

To the point?. Non-Rabbinate controlled free knowledge.

I saw the first word and thought it was a warning against listening to Shakira. Now, that I could understand as a danger to frumkeit!

Not so much the listening as the watching.
