comment Would Muslims be recognized as Karaite Jews by Kariate Judaism
It's reasonable to want an answer from a Karaite Jew regarding this question. They are the only people who can answer this because, contrary to @DhoweedYaAgov's beliefs, they interpret things their own way. However, I believe this site is a rabbinic Jewish site and I don't think questions about Karaites is on topic here.

comment Not interlacing fingers in prayer
@Ariel Right, that's what I thought. Ok. Just wanted to see if you assumed that meant it looked better than the first version with the intertwined fingers.

comment Matzah eruvin on erev Pesach
@Yehoshua as I stated in my question: I am dissatisfied by this because that meal does not actually exist. I am also dissatisfied because it relies on two definitions of "night" in order to work. It feels strategic rather than genuine.

"It's much better than the original" - could that mean "It's better than I, the original you were copying from"?

Better. Thanks.

comment Are the Jews today still waiting for the Messiah to come?
You answered "Has the messiah come?" and "What will happen when he comes?" It only barely addresses the questions of "When?" and "What kind?" It doesn't mention whether we're waiting at all except by implication.

comment Are the Jews today still waiting for the Messiah to come?
This doesn't really answer the question and also (off-topic for this site) spends time arguing against a Christisn belief that isn't mentioned anywhere.

comment Bircas HaMazon when starting to eat on Hoshanah Rabbah and finishing on Shmini Etzeres
What's the difference between this and any other bentching across time boundaries? (e.g., yontiv/not, shabbas/not, chanukah/not, purim/not, etc.)
