What a blessing that no one ever puts false biographical information on the internet.

You'll be quite glad to know this website "was produced with the haskama of Gedolei Yisrael," --though, al korcha, we must presume that the Gedolei Yisroel who last year told us the Internet was immoral, treif and banned were not invited to the meeting.

Additionally: "Our database includes names of boys, who are presently learning in Eretz Yisroel, Lakewood, Chaim Berlin, and Torah Vodaath. How many times do parents and shadchanim hear the name of what sounds like a great boy, but have no idea how to find information about him?"

To which I can only say boruch hashem. I'm tired of having to go to shul to get dirt on my neighbor's kid. Being able to access the gossip from the comfort and privacy of my own home is so much more convenient. Thanks!

Update: Here's what I want to know: Do these so called "good" boys come from homes where the shabbos table is covered with plastic? Or are the expensive linens left uncovered and at risk to wine and cholent spills, according to the authentic Torah True practice of our ancestors? Actually, never mind. There is no way in hell the gedolai yisroel would, nebach, allow boys with plastic-using parents to be included in such a heimisha data base.
