comment Why were these pasukim chosen for the upside down Nuns?
That is only one traditional explanation. See aish.com/tp/i/moha/48924777.html for another.

comment How can pigs and shellfish be kosher for bnei Noach?
um. those websites are both nearly blank.... JudaicWorld.com has a title tag that says "Tag, youre it". JewsNY.com is offline. Neither seem to have anything to do with treif meat processing.

@MonicaCellio yes, I expect that's what the answer would be but it's still a fine question.

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.

@MonicaCellio so we are distinguishing, say Diablo, from Second Life?
