A mate writes to a mate: Steve Sailer was born in Southern California as a Catholic, to probably not-very observant parents (his father was an aeronautical engineer at the apogee of that profession down there). I doubt whether religion figures large for him…now or ever. Luke Ford is the convert, fully kashrut, to Orthodoxy, and when I met him on the street in Santa Monica in August, he looked every bit the part of a straggler from one of the more unsavory Chasid orders/courts, e.g., the Satmar; sporting four days at least of scraggly beard, and a wrinkled yarmulke. He’s hyper-observant, highly educated in Torah and Talmud, believes in Hashem and His commandments two orders of magnitude — at least — more than we do, and the main problem with his vast volume of postings, is that very little of it is his own original material, and most of that which is not is the extremely unattractive gurglings of the lower orders of those goyim who disllike the Jooooos for semi-good reasons. Bringing that worldview to the consciousness of his fellow Yids is his raison d’être. Disgusting job, but somebody’s gotta do it!
"Luke Ford reports all of the 'juicy' quotes, and has been doing it for years." (Marc B. Shapiro)
"This guy knows all the gossip, the ins and outs, the lashon hara of the Orthodox world. He’s an [expert] in... all the inner workings of the Orthodox world." (Rabbi Aaron Rakeffet-Rothkoff)
