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.

@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?

comment What percentage of Chabad still believes the Rebbe is the Messiah?
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.
