"Am I missing something in understanding the root R-TZ-CH?" Looks like it!

comment “'Uf” is Torah?
Incidentally, it is referring to "the Torah that you learned", not "The Torah" generally. (EDIT: I think.)

comment Why begin eating with the bottom challa on Friday evening?
This doesn't answer the question of why. It recommends a method to ensure this is done.

comment Sharpening Shechita Knife on Chol HaMoaed
@Ze'evFelsen, if you're inclined, perhaps you could edit that idea into the body of the question. I don't know if it's part and parcel of the question, but it helps. It helped me, anyway, to understand why this would be a relevant skill to practice.

comment What are the limits of “music”?
@Shokhet, no, this is definitely not an answer. It addresses something not asked and promises to follow up later. Vote to delete.

comment Studying Holocaust Responsa on Tish'ah BeAv
@double well, it shows that one unknown internet stranger stated an opinion that could be construed as an endorsement of such practice. But I think that comes up short of my request.

Those are not activities that can potentially "gladden the heart" (à la Torah study).

comment Reputation for non-Sha'atnez?
For what it's worth, I see numerous websites that claim Jos. A. Bank is particularly bad with regard to Sha'atnez.

comment What is the correct response to “Chazaq u'Baruch!”?
I believe the Sephardi expression is "Chazaq Uvaruch", not "Chazaq Baruch".

comment “לְחֹדֶשׁ שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר” in the Megillah and Al Hanisim
This question is very confusing. Are you asking about the text of the Megillah? Are you asking about the text of 'Al HaNisim? Are you asking about leap years?
