Reb Moshe feinstein did and I was told so do his sons I have no way of confirming it so I wont write it as an answer – SimchasTorah Mar 22 '11 at 23:11
@SimchasTorah - Do we have an existing standard of not considering answers mipi sh'mu'a answers? – WAF Mar 22 '11 at 23:43
How many degrees of separation can still be considered mipi hashemua? We can confirm Rav Moshe's hanhaga by looking in the Arzei Levanon Haggadah. – Yahu Mar 23 '11 at 1:53
@WAF - Any kind of source is fine; we just want people to document what their source is. Of course, ST is well within his rights to exercise discretion in not posting an answer based on a less reliable type of source. – Isaac Moses Mar 23 '11 at 2:26
My Arzei Levanon Haggadah is still packed away but I will look up Rav Moshe's minhag bl"n as soon as I unpack it. – Yahu Mar 24 '11 at 8:15
