comment What is the opposite of shalom?
Where does that quotation originate? Also, what is an antonym? Are you taking the author's definition of it for granted and asking about validation of its application, or are you questioning the definition as well?

I want to hear somebody do a voiced bilabial fricative for every weak ב!

comment Do people who don't eat gebrokts have any reason to say “Borei Minei Mezonot” during Pesach?
They might be able to accommodate a lot of chasidim by having words of Torah instead of food, based on the Zohar about מיני תרגימא being equivalent to תרגום.

comment Different Washing for Eating Bread and Going to the Bathroom
Hi Joeshmo, and welcome again! What demonstrates to you that there is in fact a different procedure for these two washings? A printed source? Observation of individuals? Including this information would improve the question.

comment Can one rely on halal combined with vegetarian labels?
What does this have to do with the fact that it is marked as "halal"? Wouldn't the question and answers be the same if it were unmarked?

comment Why are different Agadot in different masechtot
This idea is exemplified on every page of Ein Aya by Rav Kook. He also explains the underlying methodology in Oros Ha. . . something. Probably Torah.

comment Why has the Mishnah Berurah become the Authoritative Halachik Work instead of the Aruch haShulchan?
Doesn't MB list the specific sources that he uses for his treatment of the halachos? And isn't that list similar in length to that which AH includes? (Also, are you including the bracketed parts of AH in your comparison?)
