Subject:  lashon hara
Message:  Does Rav Abadi hold that the sefer chafetz chaim is a good and accurate sefer to learn with regard to the laws of lashon hara? Are there laes in that sefer that he would disagree with?
Reply:  The Chafetz Chaim's Sefer is wonderful, however people are reading it wrong, and ignoring certain points. Soon we'll post those laws here. You'll see where they go wrong.
For example, they'll quote you that you should not say anything about anyone bad. So a friend asks you about someone if that person is honest. You're afraid to say Loshon Harah, but you know that he's a thief. Then this guy lends him a thousand dollars. oops! You messed up. Keeping the laws of LOshon Harah incorrectly is often more dangerous than saying Loshon Harah.
