Purim Torah posts, I’ve noticed, have been getting a lot of downvotes lately. While earlier I had expressed this thought, echoed by ezra there, I’m starting to think it’s because not everyone is getting into the holiday spirit.
Going through the review queue, I’m seeing posts like this one getting flagged for deletion. A short post isn’t always bad - it’s quality, not quantity. That answer delivers IMO a great punchline to the original joke, and I see no reason to have it deleted. As of writing, nobody else has voted to trash it, either.
This post serves two purposes: to remind people to have fun and not to take anything labeled PTIJ so seriously (ahem, ezra), and to receive other people’s input on what else may be causing this negative reaction to PTIJ and what we, as a community, can do to help reverse it.
