comment What is “piggul”? A question on the Bartenura
Thankyou! That's a little embarrassing, since I actually thought that I'd checked the Tosafot Yom Tov, and I evidentally didn't look hard enough! Now that I do, I see that the Ahavat Eytan and Tiferet Yisrael comment on this too. The latter, incidentally, thinks that חוץ למקומו is a type of piggul. That still doesn't answer why it should be included here if it doesn't cause karet, but I'll see what the Ahavat Eytan has to say. In the meantime, I think your suggestion about a copyist's error makes good sense!

comment Reform Judaism as an avenue for Ethical Monotheism for gentiles
You might not need a source for the claim that Orthodoxy considers the Reform movement to be invalid, but that "Halakha" also considers it invalid?? Where does "Halakha" comment on the validity of the Reform movement? For that, you need a source.

comment The Gra finished the Torah?
IMHO, this question sounds a bit silly. It's one thing to say that the Gra studied every major text that he was taught to believe was part of "the masorah", but it's another to suppose that he thought that he had thus "finished", in a sense, with Torah altogether - that Torah is a closed, bound system that one could actually do a siyum on, rather than something of infinite breadth and scope.
