comment Relations with messianists
@Daniel Being that the meaning of a mishechist is someone that belieives that the Rebbe is still BChezkat Mashiach (as Ariel and HodofHod pointed out) ... I think that before asking how to deal with this 'problem' - you should first bring a source from Chazal / Shulchan Aruch that such a belief is actually a problem

comment Chumash with Rashi and Siftei Chachamim
@HachamGabriel I have no problem with Mikraot Gedolot (Chas VShalom), my intention was to find a sefer which on one hand included Siftei Chachamim and on the other was light-weight - where a thin sefer will cover a whole book of Chumash (like the many publications which include Chumash,Onkelos and Rashi with Ikar Siftei Chachamim)

comment What percentage of Chabad still believes the Rebbe is the Messiah?
@DoubleAA : That is my EXACT intent in using the letter (ie to stop people from claiming/implying that it is kfira). YOU YOURSELF implied that it was kfira with your heterodox tag and Seth took the liberty to compare it to christianity (Chas VChalila) and to call it a 'serious problem' Hopefully with the letter in mind people will stop doing this, but with rather say: "hey, that's their belief, I don't agree with it at all, but I'll live and let live"

I think you could have made this into a real question with a little effort

comment What percentage of Chabad still believes the Rebbe is the Messiah?
@SethJ Mainstream Chabad (not only 'Mishechists") also believe that the Rebbe is still Nosi HaDor and Moshiach She-ba-dor. Furthermore, regarding the 'serious problem' you refer to .... did you see this letter from Rabbi Aharon soloveichik hezbos.blogspot.co.il/2012/09/… ?? Stop trying to condemn thousands of pious and G-d fearing Jews!!

comment Why can we not say the names of certain angels aloud?
I'm pretty sure that any angel name which is also a human name (from Tanach) can be pronounced. Example: Z'Vadyah Yishmreini ViChayeini - on Rosh Chodesh after hallel

comment Can you leave a sieve in your sink on Shabbos?
the sieve's purpose is to prevent the 'debris' from clogging up pipes - not for selecting. Also, in order for there to be a problem of selection there first must be a mixture ('Ta-ah-rovet') of things for one to select. What would the 'mixture' be here?

comment Why do we venerate previous generations?
@nikmasi (just to make this clear) I was not trying to critisize you in my original comment [like others have suggested]. Rather, [on the basis of my understanding of the Gemara sources - that they refer to future generation trend as well] - I was just wondering why these sources wouldn't help in answering your question.

Also @DoubleAA, I think that the Gemarra is stating a general trend - of yeridat hadorot - not a hard-and-fast rule which we can use compare 2 specific Rabbis based on date of birth.

comment Why do we venerate previous generations?
@DoubleAA I'm sorry, but you misunderstood my comment. It seemed clear to me that the gemarra isn't just coming to tell us about the past, but rather to tell us a general trend - including future generations - about Yeridat Hadorot

But why would we think that these statements made in the Talmud cease to become relevant in later generations?

In any case, I clearly explained myself that statistics are irrelevant when history has suggested a clear answer to the question

@DoubleAA my original answer certainly answer the question. Did you read the title? "What percentage of Chabad still believes the Rebbe is the Messiah?" - no mention of statistics there.
