Question: In last week's Parashah Sheet Ha-Rav listed two websites that relate to matchmaking, but then in the Text Message Responsa, he says that the Internet is filled with filth and nonsense and one shouldn't use it to learn Torah -- even though he is knowingly doing just that with his weekly e-mails. How can we understand this seeming contradiction?
Answer: If one can do without the Internet or is considering not using it, it is preferable. If, however, one is using it, we should at least encourage proper use, including proper filtering and worthwhile content.
