Copyediting, and attempting to rephrase the question so that it doesn't ask for p'sak halacha.

comment If your rabbi accidentally tells you that something is allowed, and you follow him, are you punished?
@ray: The only reason I claim the rabbi is unreliable is because, in this made-up example case, he gave a wrong answer.

@ray: Who forced the 119-year-old in the question to sin? Maybe it was his own fault: maybe he should've done more due diligence before choosing a rabbi.

@DoubleAA: You pointed me to a webpage which contains all 13 folios of the Gemara's tractate Horayos (which is also available in English). Which part(s) discuss the case of a single individual rabbi who mistakenly permitted something which is forbidden?

comment Should you say a blessing on diet soda used to swallow a pill?
@Gary: 1. When I get well-sourced answers here, and when all the answers agree, I tend to respect them and hold like them. On the other hand, if I got well-sourced but conflicting answers, or unsourced answers, it would be silly to pick one and hold like it. So in summary, I treat answers here with a grain of salt. 2. Still, I recently had another question closed as "don't ask here for personal rulings". So, this time, I figured that writing "CYLOR" might help to prevent that.

comment What do you do if your Shabbos host serves chocolate chip challah?
Dear OP: These are not three mutually exclusive Positions. Really, these are three Cases. If any of the three Cases come up, then you must wash and say hamotzi on a mezonos item. You seem to be arguing that, in Case 3, you shouldn't wash or say hamotzi. But R' Luban implies that the Mishnah Berurah says that, in Case 3, you must wash and say hamotzi. Are you saying that the Mishnah Berurah is wrong? And if so, why is he wrong? Please edit the question to clarify it, then ping me.

Fixing a link. (The copy at ou.org/torah is truncated, so pointing to archive.org instead.) Pointing readers to see footnote 8 within that link.
