The Matzav disrespects its readers (and our intelligence)

The Matzav scored two for the price of one today, when it published a complaint from a reader who objected to seeing a photo of Rebbetzin Batsheva Kanievsky, obm. The complaint is pure drivel, and though I think the Matzav insults us all by publishing such things I must give them credit for this: The letter of complaint was accompanied by --yup!!-- a picture of the rebbetzin!

I have no desire to mock a silly 21-year old, but really: who fills their minds with such nonsense? A picture of a woman's face is immodest?

(I also have no desire at all to disrespect a rebbetzin, especially one who has recently died, but I do have some questions about some of her famous practices. For instance, I'm told she made a point of giving girls to drink from her husbands cup (why?) and encouraged them to sit in the Steipler's Chair (why?))
