I am convinced that Vos Iz Neias is the heimishe version of the New York Post, they copy and paste a bunch of regular articles from CNN and Huffington post and then like clockwork every 10 articles or so is placed there to get your attention and piss you off, or some people off.
Every time there is more then 10 comments you can be sure that some sort of argument consisting of an Us vs Them mentality is taking place. Usually consisting of some sort of story not that has someone that isnít orthodox which leads to a 100 comment discussion on why a heimishe news site has a story about frei or goyishe people, its quite funny.
Here are some of my own examples:
For instance a story about a family killed in a car crash would elicit comments like:
But were they frum?
Yidden shouldnít participate in such dangerous activities such as driving
I heard that the mother wasnít covering her hair so it serves her right
I heard they wore knit yarmulkes and they arenít frum
Hurricane hits the coast of Cuba:
Donít worry no Jews were hurt
Cuba is communist why do we care?
I heard one of the people killed was frum but he doesnít wear a hat to shul so its fine
Frum man caught red handed molesting a boy:
Are they sure he was frum?
I donít believe it
Frum people donít do such things, whereís the proof
I heard that he didnít give a donation to his kids yeshiva and they framed him
Treife hot dogs found in kosher store:
They weren’t treife they only had an OU
OU is treife
How can you read VIN all they publish is loshon harah?
The internet is assur I implore you all to leave now
I was at the store and the hot dogs weren’t treife, its just a rumor
Well if you were there say your name so we can prove it
