comment Electronic sliding doors on shabbat
The whole site runs presuming the policy you stated in the second half of your question. However, this is a community where people come to ask for sources and opinions, not halakhic advice. If you'd like to insert a link in your answer to the Why ask a rabbi question, you're welcome to, but it needn't be the focus of your response.

comment When does the cantillation for Ester and other books change?
I think the OP is asking for places where specific verses or passages have a different trope than the normal trope for that sefer/setting.

comment Where did the sing-song chant that Jews often use while contrasting points come from?
This may be a reference to the mishnaic trope system referenced in Wikipedia

comment Zeraim Moed Nashim Nezikim Kodshim Taharos - why not Moadim?
@DoubleAA Someone (maybe Kehati?) claims that Pesachim is plural because it used to be two tractates broken along the lines you mentioned, but they were combined into one early on.

The operators (who presumably may not be Jewish) or the cemetery itself (which is a Jewish institution)?
