comment Is Extra virgin olive oil kosher by default?
Excellent question! +1. I agree with Isaac Moses: you should ask your rabbi, for many reasons. If he says it's not kosher: You can ask him whether or not you may use it to kindle your Sabbath or Chanukah lamps. Or you can give it to a non-Jewish acquaintance. Or you can donate it to a food bank. Or you can put it out at the curb in a box labeled "Free".

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.
