comment Is “Nishmat” included in most copies of the haggadah?
This is a ludicrous argument that I don't have time for this close to Yom Tov. The OP asked a question. Our job is to provide substantive and (wherever possible) non-judgmental answers. חג שמח.

No, you're not, but if the OP has multiple versions lacking it, perhaps you might want to establish multiple sources to assert something "definitely".

comment Is “Nishmat” included in most copies of the haggadah?
I've never seen (read: noticed) an Haggadah without one.

comment Is “Nishmat” included in most copies of the haggadah?
I've corrected your punctuation, but I have to say that I'm surprised that you'd rely on one example (albeit very old and generally regarded as authoritative), to assert that something is "definitely" supposed to be a certain way. Wouldn't you like to at least qualify it by saying something like, "Machzor Vitri, a Talmid of Rashi, includes it in his, so it seems at least in Ashkenazi haggados it should not be surprising to see."

comment Leaving the room during a kabbalistic dvar Torah
The word "proper" is vague. Do you mean to ask whether it would be the preferred thing to do rather than subjecting yourself to improper education, or do you mean to ask whether it would be deemed tolerable despite the fact that you recognize it to be disrespectful?

comment What are the ancestors of Israelites?
See, also, that very Wikipedia article. "The eponymous biblical patriarch of the Israelites is Jacob, who wrestled with God who gave him a blessing and renamed him "Israel" because he had "striven with God and with men, and have prevailed". (Genesis 32:24-32)"

comment Declaration of Intent
Are you asking about those specific instances for a reason? Is your question meant to be broader? Do you have a reason to make the leaps you are making between Barukh she'amar and Ma Tovu and between lulav and Erev Pesach?

comment Tearing paper towels on Shabbat
@sta no, I do not believe wiping up a spill is on par with eating in terms of "need". At least, I've never considered it so, but perhaps a more senior and seasoned Halachic expert might disagree with me.

comment How would you describe the literary style of Torah?
"Early Biblical." Is that not what you're looking for?

First, if you're Sephardic.

comment Drinking wine at the seder while leaning
I think that, if your understanding of the Halachah makes a simple task like drinking impossible, then perhaps your understanding is flawed, or you're putting too much effort into your technique.

Then maybe you should ask an ill person how they do it. I mean that seriously, not sarcastically.

@private, I've never experienced difficulty with this basic task. Perhaps a photo of your leaning "style" will come in handy with answering this question.
