comment Why is techeles not universally accepted?
@Gershon - I know plenty "Litvishes" who do wear techeles, though some davka tuck them in. For the record, what you call "Litvish" bears absolutely no resemblance to what people in Lithuania were like, but that's for a different discussion...

comment the dress of the followers of Harav Kook
I can back up @Isaac on this: I heard from my Rosh Yeshiva (R' A.C. Goldfein ZT"L) that in Telz, R' Elya Meir Bloch ZT"L used to wear a white hat, and his beard was a close-cropped goatee. The whole concept of a uniform dress code is completely non-Litvish.

comment Why is techeles not universally accepted?
It is sort of a duplicate, except with more info in the question. The answers there don't deal with all the issues I've mentioned here, and I'd like to see more discussion on the subject...

comment Passing an infant across a table
This is a question that can only be answered in one direction - if anyone can say "Yes". Nobody will be able to state definitively that there is no such custom... so if nobody answers, consider it a "No"... ;)

comment Is it permissible to erase the name of G-d from an E-reader?
Just an interesting point - more a comment than an answer - if you have a concern about erasing G-d's name from an e-reader, then you should also be concerned about saving any file to disk that contains G-d's name. The fact is that the Name is then encrypted in physical hardware in what is effectively just a different language, which can be read by a computer. G-d's Name is sacred in any language. So maybe you should also be concerned about erasing files that contain G-d's name?
