comment All you need is love?
@msh210 Meh. His proof, not mine. I'm just asking if there's any support for this idea in sources.

comment All you need is love?
@msh210 again, without defending his position, the point he was making with #2 was that "love" is an inadequate translation.

comment Halachic authority of books
@yydl, even Gedolim have detractors, or at the very least opposition on various rulings. Take R' Eliyashiv's ban on Shabbos elevators a few years ago. I remember a quote in a newspaper of a Hasidic woman who said, "he's not my rabbi, so I don't have to follow him."

comment So you ate dairy after meat. Now what?
No, I meant is he an original source, and if so from where does he derive his authority as such? Does he cite other sources that lead him to come on his own to his conclusion, or does he merely echo another authority that states it outright?

Nice. Undownvoted. Internally debating whether to upvote or not.

comment Correct Niqqud for ואטהר in Sefira Nusach
It's a shame I have to vote this down, because the last paragraph is interesting. However, the first paragraph is critical of another answer and belongs as a comment on that answer, and the second paragraph is a non-answer. Try re-working this to make it more relevant to the question being asked.

comment כחל of a Ḥayah Tehorah - same din as כחל of a Behemah Tehorah?
Is anyone else here exceptionally frustrated that Vram left and deleted his comments? I recall that this one was especially enlightening, but can't recall it (or its source) fully.

comment Is swordfish Kosher?
GershonGold, you asked earlier which Gemara. It's supposedly Hulin 66b, although I didn't see it on a quick skim (can't really spend time on this right now). Is that where you found it?
