Who are the "anonymous Orthodox Jewish residents of cyberspace" who run the mysterious mainly Jewish news aggregator VosIzNeias.com

With all the amazing "journalism" and "scoops" and "we get involved" assertions from this "blog" - why don't they name some names, places, faces. Give us a hint. Who are they?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I would say many of those writing responses on the site are particularly inarticulate.

I switched to a lesser known site about a 2 months ago. If VIN bugs you, try:

www.hamercaz.com

They have all the stories and more than Yeshiva World and VIN. While Yeshiva World seems to leave out modern Orthodox news and problems (molestation) in the frum community, and VIN leaves out most Israeli news and news about rabbanim and kashrus, Hamercaz seems to carry everything.

And the writing on Hamercaz is better than the third-grade level of grammar and spelling found on those other sites.

(and they've got this jewish youtube thing happening on the site too)
