Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com. Alternatively, I maintain an office on chat. (Please ignore the meta cruft.)

I write about my experience as a community manager at jericson.github.io. You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Does “foreign religious obligation” = “Takruvas Avodah Zarah”?
I know better than to attempt an answer in the religious question: I'm way out of my depth! I had @Dave's suggestion in mind when writing my comment. In purely human terms, it seems unethical to waste such a gift. (I thoroughly enjoy the question. I hope it gets an answer. ;-)

comment Does “foreign religious obligation” = “Takruvas Avodah Zarah”?
@Seth J: The context is an instruction from Jesus to "love your enemies". Personally, I think the fellows in the story applied the text exactly correctly. Of course, by asking for something on the basis of this verse, one would self-identify as an enemy (which may or may not be the intention). This is no answer, but if you ask (and take) money in this way, I think it would be dishonest to not use it in some fashion. Perhaps giving it to a favorite charity would satisfy the moral conundrum.

comment What ancient sources discuss the meaning of Psalm 22?
I'm an interested party and while this is an interesting refutation of the Christian interpretation (and one I will think on), it doesn't really answer the question. Rather, as I understand it, the question is looking for positive interpretations. ("What does the Psalm mean?" rather than "What doesn't the Psalm mean?", in other words.)

comment What's the difference between “Jew”, “Israelite” and “Judaizer”?
@Monica Cellio: You are correct. Yet another sad moment in history that I wish did not occur, but can't allow myself to forget.
