comment Can a gentile break shabbos only on a Rabbinic level?
According to the Binyon Tzion cited in your source, carrying a key would certainly not be considered enough even in a reshus harabim. The question is whether we follow his ruling l'maaseh - lehakel or lehachmir..

comment What does “Maaseh Rav” mean?
@DoubleAA Good question. Perhaps to stick to the phrase מעשה רב that is used in other places in Shas, e.g. Shabbos 21a and 126b, Baba Kama 68a, Nidda 65b

comment Esrog with “gartel”
The Wikipedia article seems quite well sourced. You mean the name (Rabbi Sternbuch) without quoting where? Does that warrant a new answer?
