comment Which blessings should I say before and after eating perogi with potato-and-cheese filling?
Dear all: Is it a poor-quality question? Is there any way in which I could improve it?

comment What is the blessing on dough?
@yEz: Good reply. OK; let me respond. The question shows research effort, and is clear, but I'm not sure that it's especially useful in my life. That is why I've voted it +0. (If this was a mistake, please correct me.) Though, even though it may not be an important question in my life, I agree that all posts (whether practical or theoretical) improve the site.

comment Which blessings should I say before and after eating perogi with potato-and-cheese filling?
@DoubleAA: I'm not confident enough in my knowledge of the laws of blessings that I would guess. I searched Google and berachot.org, but found no answers. There are many possible transliterations of the word "pierogi" and of the word "b'rachah"; these multiple transliteration choices can be an obstacle for Web searchers. I suppose I could start some offline research by walking to my local synagogue and looking in the index of a book about the laws of blessings for the word "pierogi", but I figured I'd ask here instead for now.

+0. Why would you want to eat raw dough? (Unless it's raw cookie dough, which is sweet and delicious.)

comment Cleaning Tzitzis
Water can pass through a sock perfectly well. And so I don't see why this "Magen Tzitzit" device is any better.

comment Cleaning Tzitzis
I bought a wool beged which was advertised as machine washable on the delicates cycle. I wash it in a delicates bag using the regular cycle. It seems to be holding up. I haven't measured it to see whether or not it's shrunk.

@Scimonster: Fair point. I've edited the question. Now do you see why it might be forbidden?

comment Is it permissible to use an escalator on Shabbos?
@DannySchoemann Jamezrp just joined Mi Yodeya today. I think he's saying that most escalators in the US are found in malls, but that hanging out in malls goes against the spirit of Shabbos, so you should be careful not to hang out in malls during Shabbos. Are things less unclear now? :)

comment can one commit aveiros after he is dead?
Jamezrp, welcome to Mi Yodeya. I hope you'll like the place and decide to stay. Before you post an answer, please read over it several times and make sure it's as clear as possible to the maximum possible number of readers. (The first sentence could use some work.) Still, thanks very much for the thoughtful answer!
