Introduction

Well it looks like the Godol really has hung it up. It's been several days now. Nothing. Just a new picture and a tease caption. We were avid fans. Loyal readers. We even posted once in a while but we weren't part of the "click". Looking in from the outside was fine. GH kept us coming back. He kept us interested. He kept us laughing. His intellectual honesty and direct approach to what is wrong with Orthodoxy was a breath of fresh air. And not dry air like some other blogs.

We've been trying to find a suitable replacement. Checking out the popular blogs as well as some of the "heir apparents". So far, it is not looking promising.

With the goal in mind of trying to find someone to fill the void that GH left, we will be tracking, reviewing and critiquing other Jewish blogs in the hope of bringing back some of the blogging joy that the GH provided. The bloggers can ignore us or work with us. We are here to help. Constructive criticism is the idea although we're pretty sure the theme of the post will degenrate into just mean attacks.

And we're off...............

GH was obnoxious. I'm glad he is gone.

Anony-
Hirhurim is a valuable tool in education and avodah. The GH of blessed memory also served in that capacity incorporating his own style and individuality to the task. His use of humor and satire attracted a wide audience in the search for truth. There are many paths on the road to Avodas Hashem.

Gil is full of knowledge and a great resource. But reading his post makes me, well, yawn.
