comment Is idolatry and adultery the same thing, spiritually?
@ShamanSTK Yes that's what I was trying to get to in my comment. If they were actually equivalent, you couldn't have a one-way relationship. If it's the same, it's the same. But you can have a metaphor only work one way. I didn't really express that clearly, though.

comment Is idolatry and adultery the same thing, spiritually?
I have heard of idolatry being equated with adultery, but in my experience it's a one-way comparison. I've never heard of anyone saying "You did adultery, that's like you worshiped idols." (Although I don't tend to associate with people who commit adultery, I also don't tend to associate with people who commit idolatry)

comment Self-referencing as an Apikorus
This may not apply if the person is obviously joking as is the case in the question.

comment Is it permitted to share a plate or bowl with a pet (such as a cat or dog)?
I'm assuming you don't mean sharing plates without washing them... right?

comment What does it mean for a mourner to “have a chiuv”?
So if I understand you correctly, the "chiuv" that is being referred to is to lead davening, but to call it a chiuv is not literally correct?

comment What does it mean for a mourner to “have a chiuv”?
@DoubleAA Your question takes as a given that the chiuv is for saying kaddish. If that is indeed the case, then that could be an answer (ideally with some evidence and preferably with an explanation why such a chiuv would be a reason for that person to lead davening).

comment Define the terms used for “types” or “grades” of tefillin
This answer is barely on this side of plagiarism. You have two sentences of your own which aren't even correct and then copy-pasted the rest from hasofer.com

comment Where can I find a consolidated list of converts who are mentioned in the Bible, Mishnah and Talmud?
@DanF Most of the articles that are included in that category have English versions. If you click through to the individual articles, the link to the English version is on the right side of the page.

comment Do women/minors count toward the nine listening to chazaras hashatz?
I read this question as women/**mirrors**. Like can you set up a couple of mirrors to reflect one person's image many times to make a minyan.
