comment Does one say birkat ha-ilanot on Shabbat?
Because their Halakhah is ruled in accordance with the Qabbalah. Nevertheless, for those who don't rule strictly in accordance with the Qabbalah, the general principle is as the RaDBa"Z.

comment Proper way for a man to urinate while standing
@msh210 I agree that this doesn't really answer the question and rather calls its validity into question (which is fine).

comment Do any movements forgo the seven clean days?
Hakham Eliyahu, in Darke'i Taharah, cites opinions which are very lenient regarding Shiv'ah Neqiyim (in the chapter on Shiv'ah Neqiyim). That might be a good place to start searching.

comment Could an Israelite allow an existing fire to remain lit on the Sabbath?
While it may implicitly do so, I don't think this answer the question's title about "[keeping] an existing fire going on the Sabbath". To keep a fire going, one would need to add fuel to it and I don't think this answer addresses that.

comment What is permissible on “anything-but” night (סמוך לוסתה)?
@DoubleAA I'm only learning Hilkhot Taharah for the second time now and am by no means whatsoever an expert. My previous comment was my feeble attempt at understanding the pesaq cited. Nevertheless, assuming it is indeed "only" a Safeq DeRabbanan, why would we knowingly put ourselves in a situation with a high likelihood of turning into a safeq?
