comment Is Rambam's opinion about Nidda and Zava cycle rejected?
@Emetv'Shalom In what way? Rambam's opinion is categorically rejected by all other Rishonim, and from a modern point of view his position makes no sense unless you assume that he's making a hishtaneh ha'teva argument and saying that women used to have perfectly regular 7-11 cycles, but that at some point nature changed. In fact that's how I read it personally. Regarding sfek sfeika, I could see that according to "sfek d'oriyta l'hachmir, sfek d'rabinan l'hakel" once you get to sfek sfeika you've went beyond the bounds of the rule and sfek sfeika is always like d'rabinan and you're lenient

comment Israeli making pizza on last day of Pesach in the Diaspora
But if the Israeli isn't required to keep the second day of yom tov, which many say he isn't, why would it be a problem for him to eat chametz after Pesach is over for him?

The one about it being a test of his attention to detail is very nice.

comment Does Bleeding on the 11th Day Join Bleeding on the 12th Day of the Zav Days?
Ok, someone had given me the impression that there was some contention or uncertainty about this issue, but it seems like it's pretty straight forward from what you're saying.

comment Does Rambam take the 6 days of creation literally?
It doesn't take a whole book, he just has a few pages in the book discussing this specific question.

comment Why Was Benjamin Almost Destroyed?
So basically Ramban mentions the parallel with S'dom, but limits it only to the small group that carried out the attack, and not to the tribe as a whole? Do you know where I could read the whole thing in the original Hebrew?

@Salmononius2 Which is why I'm asking the question - I'd like to know what classic commentaries say on this subject - especially in light of the literary parallel / allusion to Sodom.
