comment Is the Oral Law mainly of Divine origin or is it largely influenced by the rabbis/cultures of the time?
@Superplane Or Qara'im?

comment What does it mean to pronounce לו as opposed to לא
Incidentally, the edition of Masekhet Soferim linked to in your question cites WaYiqra 21. Either that's a smudge in the HebrewBooks.org scan or a typo on the part of the author citing the verse.

comment What does it mean to pronounce לו as opposed to לא
If you see RaSh"I on WaYiqra 25:30, it is pretty clearly that "we read it" means "we understand it to mean" (as your final note in parentheses suggests). I don't think the pronunciation is being discussed; but, the meaning of the word.

comment According to Halacha, may we endanger many Jewish lives in order to definitely save one Jew?
HaRav Dawidh Bar-Hayim touches on this topic here. A fascinating shi'ur.

comment When to say brocha when making a L'chaim
Indeed, any speech between one's berakhah on a beverage and the drinking of that beverage (except for SheHehhyehanu) would be considered a hefseq. Perhaps worthwhile to provide sources.

IMHO, there is a very open-ended question and caters to highly subjective answers. If I could, I would vote for it to be fine-tuned.

comment Is ad-blocker software permissible?
Hazaq on the thorough answer. But, dovetailing @Yishai's comment, IMHO your answer could be greatly improved if it considered Halakhic arguments for requiring an ad-blocker (e.g. statistics on how many ads are licentious and may entail Issurim MiDeOrayta).

comment Why are 2 Midianites mentioned in the Torah named “bird”?
@CashCow No, he wasn't. He was indeed of Midianite origin. See RaSh"I to BeMidbar 22:4.
