comment Numbers of Tannaim and Amoraim
@CashCow A number would be great. (Quoting the source would be equally important).

comment Sources on printing Shem הוי”ה in Siddurim
Rav Moshe Shternbuch in Teshuvos VeHanhagos (I don't remember where exactly) is of the opinion that using the yhvh name is better (especially for kriyas shema) than the double yud.

comment Not approaching the Western Wall
Assuming that what the Rabbi said was his only reason, I don't know of a source. However he could of had other reasons that he would not have stated. One that could explain his actions is a halachic issue of standing close to the wall. Rav Moshe Shternbuch discusses this in Teshuvos Ve'Hanhagos. I don't remember which one but maybe someone can find it by using the index. The rabbi might have wanted to use a personal reason so as not to stop the other person from approaching since it seems to be a chumrah not to come close to the wall.

comment Tefillin of the Chofetz Chaim
In the Artscroll biography of the Chafet Chaim I remember seeing a picture of him wearing his tefillin (and learning or davening). I was always suspect, though, that it's not really him because his tefillin shel yad is uncovered in the photo and he writes in the Mishna Berura that it's better to cover them.
