comment No longer prostrating after tefillah - sources?
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??

comment Maybe God lied?
Perhaps this question can be rephrased... Are you asking for a source within the Torah that God is not deceitful, or are you asking for a source outside of it that the Torah is true?.

comment What is the Pilpul method of learning?
Thank you, @Matt! Your familiarity with a broad array of literature is most impressive, and I appreciate you sharing these references (as I likewise appreciated you sharing some on another of my answers a little while back). Regarding the Netziv, could you please tell me which of the introductions to Sheiltot you are referring to? I have a version open in front of me, and I see one titled קדמת העמק and another titled פתח העמק. My guess is that you're referring to the former, but I'm not sure.

You might try asking the author of the article - I note that there's a comment field beneath it.

comment Are there any types of questions that Eliyahu (Elijah) cannot answer?
@DoubleAA - Where in the question does it limit responses to sfeiqa dedina? (And for the record, I don't think that issues of sfeiqa demetziut have anything to do with Eliyahu either; it's a catch-all expression, which means "one day we'll know", or "perhaps we'll never know". Like saying, "I'll tell you when the moshiach comes", which also has nothing to do with the moshiach providing the information.)

FYI, there are also places in gemara where it says יהי מונח עד שיבא אליהו ("let it rest until Eliyahu comes"), which is somewhat more explicit than "Teiku".

comment “Masekhtot Banayikh”: The Origins of an Expression
Because I'm daft like that sometimes :) I fixed it. The typo, that is - not my daftness.
