  2. I am not saying that moderation is or isnt a good value, but who said that Chareidim are "into" it? I dont get his whole post?

    Chareidim stand for doing whats right - even against the whole world. Not for compromise. In fact, that is one of their tainas against DL and MO - that they compromise on our (and their) ikar value system.

    If you hold moderation is wrong, that a chareidi wont compromise to get to it.

    That and the fact that chareidim follow the Gedolei Yisroel on "hanhagas hatzibbur" - and not what each individual doing whatever he thinks is correct or makes more sense.
