comment Is learning the Tanya dangerous?
@NoachmiFrankfurt it's not even technically Kabbalah, it's chasidus, which by definition (tries to)brings certain parts of kabbala into the realm of intellectual understanding.

comment “Upper Level Teshuva” for Zera LeVatala
@Yishai I've been using that! Good recommendation. I didn't see it clearly, but that's not to say I read the continuation so thoroughly. Any chance of a summary for this question, to make it accessible?

comment “Upper Level Teshuva” for Zera LeVatala
@DoubleAA that sounds great, but there seems to be a clear distinction between the 2 levels of teshuva...!

comment “Upper Level Teshuva” for Zera LeVatala
I see the possible duplicate judaism.stackexchange.com/q/62044/2246 but I feel that question doesn't adequately address this issue of upper level teshuva --how does that fit into the answer given there?

If you're going to make one that says la'hadshem, also make one that says "la'azazel" ;)

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
@Daniel well, obviously he is interested in psak, but we can still edit the question to keep the basic question even if it's not fully what he wants....he basically wants psak based off of the question "are there sources for it"

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
@Daniel "are there sources for allowing cross dressing as a way to enhance marital relations" and/or "is cross dressing deoraita or derabanan"

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
I'd suggest editing the question to make it less of a personal request for psak. In general , it's a very interesting , on topic question.

I think generally if it doesn't feel fresh, it's okay.

comment “Evading” small taxes
I can see how this might be marked as off topic, if understood as asking for clarification about how he IRS enforces. However, I think what I am really asking is ON-topic and is essentially, "What is the halachic definition of 'enforced'". If someone feels that needs to be edited in to be clearer, feel free.
