comment How are there arguments over how God works?
Your question doesn't make sense to me. "Unlike darshaning a pasuk, in which multiple versions are all valid, God either works in one way or another". Sure, but what if we only know how God works from pesukim??

comment Is the Maharshal's list of differences between Talmud Bavli and Talmud Yerushalmi complete?
For what it's worth, the book that you have cited is not by the Maharshal: it's by R' Menachem Mendel Hochstein. Only the final three pages are by the Maharshal, comprising a list of differences between Babylonia and the land of Israel in both custom and law. It appears to be complete, although R' Hochstein doesn't cite its source and I've not yet found it in any of the Maharshal's writings.

comment Why are tractates arranged in descending order of size?
@Yehuda - can you give me an example of this? I'm not familiar with the gemara ever doing that...

Thank you, Yishai - that's very helpful. I am leaving this question open for now, in order to encourage more responses, but +1.

Really? Not for me, for some reason... I must be one of the lucky few :)

comment Rashi on Righteous Kings: Omissions
In a way, this question is asked by the Rashash (R' Shmuel Strashun), although he doesn't answer it. He points out that Rashi (Sukkah 45b, sv. יותם בן עוזיהו) declares Yotam to have been completely righteous, to have exemplified the mitzva of honouring one's father and of having been possessed of greater humility than any other king. He notes that Rashi doesn't mention Yotam here (Yevamot 63a), but doesn't suggest why.

comment Tanach with grammatical text analysis
If the analysis that you're looking for is strictly grammatical, what difference does the publisher's religion make??
