comment Why is there no exchanging of food gifts during Purim Katan?
It basically says that we don't learn from general statements in the Mishna even when they already list exceptions - there can be additional exceptions.

comment Why does the gemara record an “Ileima” suggested answer?
To explain the necessity of the other answer. It would be better if you included an example in the question so that the answer can address it specifically to illustrate the point

comment Can Sefardim carry in Monsey, NY?
@DanF, the basic deficiency in the Monsey Eruv is its reliance on the idea that 600,000 people have to pass through the road daily for an otherwise ineligible road to be unable to be covered by an Eruv (now that's a subtle double negative). Most - if not all - big-city Eruvim rely on this heter, but there is no reason a questioner needs to know this fact to ask a question.

Anyway, all you need for an answer is here: askrabbihassan.blogspot.com/2014/01/…. Side point, if you read the Mechaber leniently, then why hold of the rule at all of a stam with a lenient Yesh Omrim Halacha K'Stam?

I don't think as written this is a RFP. It is asking to confirm a reason for Sefardi Psak to be more strict based on something the asker heard.

Vote to keep open because it is about how to care for a garment that is a דבר המיוחד לתפילה. This isn't any different than any of the questions about how to make lighting for a sukka, etc. etc.
