Whats the difference between Rishimu and JewSchool?

Whats the difference between Rishimu and JewSchool?

Essentially nothing. I mean sure, the guy who owns JewSchool posseses non-offensive politics, manners, and a sense of fair play. And yes, that's a difference. But when it comes down to how the blogs are organized the new webmagazine Gil is lauding as the "thee next generation of the online Jewish conversation" is just another group blog.

MEANWHILE Gil's community continues to strongly oppose Hirhurim's change of venue. His readers don't like Luke Ford. They don't like Ben Atlas. They don't want to learn how to navigate a new blog. They hate the idea of registering. They know their comments will be moderated.

After this all blows over, here's the comment we'll be remembering in a few months time:

Who wants to host the Reshimu death pool? You can take sideline bets on when Gil scurries back. Six months is the long bet.

UPDATE: Does Gil really believe in Rishimu ior is it all about the Benjamins?

Here's his latest:

If I don't close this blog, no one will go to Reshimu.

Now that's a KILLER argument for Reshimu being the unavoidable future of blogging! Its such a fabulous site that NO ONE WILL GO unless Gil submits.

And another excellent comment:

Gil: "I suggest that other bloggers get on board while they have the chance."

Oooh, sounds scary. Personally, I suggest that other bloggers give Reshimu a wide berth. Too many chabadskers and other bloggers of dubious origins. And a porn king too! Maybe they should call it 'Hirhurim', if you know what I mean.
