More frumster news:

A few weeks ago i commented on the frumster advice column "Ask Batya" which allows members to send questions to Batya- a social worker who has been married for over 30 years and whose hobbies include drinking tea and resting.

Well, it seems frumster feels that this isnt enough to compete with my site, and has yet another "general dating advice" column given by Sherry S. Zimmerman and Rosie Einhorn, both proud grandparents; Their expertise ranges from rocking chairs to Metamucil.

So if you have a dating question, drop a dime and give them a call.

Reader sends in a long email:

A problem exists within the frum community that must be addressed. There are people out there who lie about their professional and academic credentials, leading all their friends and family to believe they are more impressive and accomplished than they truly are. The worst part about this is that these type of people hog, not only the spotlight of those who truly deserve to be commended for their accomplishment, but their potential dates as well. Very few single people in the frum community have super impressive credentials, and having people lie and claim to be what they aren't greatly diminishes the accomplishments of the deserving few. These frauds seem to have every frum person fooled, because every frum guy and girl wants to believe they are associated with greatness and can tell others of their friendships with such impressive people. How many times do I have to hear "oh, moshe, its nice that you have such great academic and professional accomplishments, but I know XXX who has done even better." This is so frustrating because I know who they are talking about and I know he is a fraud! Mike, I feel you are the only person who can understand my grievance, and I hope you can do something about it. How many girls do I have to lose to this liar?

PS Please keep this on the down-low and dont post it on your site,

Moshe Anon.

Moshe, I think I, as well as many others reading your private email know precisely which individual you are referring to. He is indeed a great fraud and has most people fooled. To solve this problem, i will give Mr. Fraud and ultimatum:

If by the end of the week, I do not receive an email from you apologizing for your acts and promising to cease making up stories, at once, I will have to take drastic action and out you for being a fraud. Cheers.

Greetings, loyal readers. I have returned.

I have recently learned that frumster has begun to charge a fee for its use. According to frumster's new payment policy, while a person will have to pay in order to send messages, non paying members can still receive messages free of charge.

In other words, as long as youre a hot chick, frumster is free. But then again, if youre a hot chick, youre probably not on frumster.

Coming soon: Solving the shidduch crisis once and for all.

EDIT: I have been informed that although you can receive messages free of charge, you have to pay in order to read them. I guess i gave the folks at frumster too much credit, thinking they were trying to attract hot chicks and all.

In an attempt to directly compete with this website, Frumster has recently started an advice section - "Ask Batya."

Batyas credentials are as follows:

"An MSW (Master of Social Work) with many years of clinical experience in individual, and marital treatment both in the U.S. and Israel, Mrs. Ben-Ze'ev grew up in a Reform family, but became Orthodox almost 30 years ago, while living in Atlanta, Georgia. All of her three children are married, and she has been happily married for 36 years.

I guess it makes sense asking dating advice from a woman who hasnt been on a date since the 60s...That is, if your parents arent too busy. Tell me Batya, where can i find the cheapest ice cream soda shop?

Well anyway, this batya seems like a nice lady, so if any of you are interested in finding out what the dating scene was like 40 years ago, you should drop Batya a line.
