chabad lite gave themselves the name. it was started by their group in LA. very much like the misnagdim, who self defined themselves in contrast to chassidim.

why single out Chabad?

To 4:

Why are you picking on Chabad regarding internet use. Is Chabad the only one having problems due to inappropriate internet use? No way! Look at the problems plaguing other communities (e.g. inapropriate exploits) – and, yes, their standards of tznius are a little more adhered to than in Chabad. Yet, there still severe things going on there.

To all Misnagdim, I disagree with 5. Welcome to Chabad, but don’t pick on us.

Still depends on person

Internet use, in the hands of responsible people, like teachers and those who are not persuaded by their taavahs, is a wonderful way to share educational materials and ideas. But, just as you would not want just anyone having a gun, student use must be carefully filtered and monitored. Students, especially youngsters, can be very curious, even into forbidden territories, CH”V.

Number 1: How are shluchims kids in cities that do not have jewish schools able to educate their children?? Obviously you live in a fully lubavitcher neighborhood so you dont know what its like. Number 2: You are an idiot because they are pretty much the same and should be treated as such. You have parental controls for both use them or get rid of it. Number 4: You are such a negative person and because of people like you there is such a name like Chabad Lite. Why should there be a name? who are you to call them… Read more »

The danger of student access to teacher access. Student access to the internet helps explain Chabad’s big tznius issue as well as Chabad Lite and off the derech issues.

How can you say that? there are so many students who gain so much from the online school and other shluchus network, where otherwise they would not be able to interact with other fellow lubavitchers and have a chassidushe curriculum. The internet has been a valuable asset to many shluchim and other people who use it for the right things.

TV and internet are incomparable.

to clarify

the rebbe was for using technology such as tv positively,
but the rebbe ALSO said that bringing it into the home compares to bringing the cross into the home.
(This is a printed sicha. I am not making it up).
