comment Is Listening to a Torah Tape considered Talmud Torah?
Your last paragraph is very interesting (to me, anyway).

@Daniel it's on the end of the row. That's hot real estate.

comment How attached can one be to a Makom Kavua'?
I saw your question. I'm more curious about others being forceful and stubborn about it, and whether that means I have to just give in. This would seem very unfair.

comment Looking for verses for my Hebrew name to use during the shmona esrei
Check the back of the standard Hebrew-English ArtScroll Siddur. Page 960 in the Ashkenaz seems to ring a bell with me for this (I used to use it a lot).

comment Is there a Mitzvah to buy from Israel?
+1 for the question for me. The answer may be 'no', but the question works. Dov, welcome to Mi Yodeya.

comment Is there a Mitzvah to buy from Israel?
@CashCow, I think you're missing the broader point of this question. Dov seems to want to know if it can be correctly stated that there is a Mitzvah to support Israeli businesses generally, assuming no other prohibitions come into play. I would think you might have the same objection if the business in question sold only cooked mixtures of meat and milk, or if it were a prostitution ring.

comment Marital relations if pregnancy is potentially life-threatening?
The "correct" answer to this question is CYLOR. The question can be rephrased to make it about the use of birth control generally and whether there are scenarios when it is allowed, or about the requirement for marital relations generally and whether there are scenarios when it is not required. But for the question "does Judaism allow couples to forego marital relations if one partner is at risk of a dangerous pregnancy, and if so, when?" is a practical one, and a sensitive one, whose answer is CYLOR.

@Daniel see my comment just above this one.

comment Is it permitted that male person to have feminine job? And otherwise?
I totally agree with you, @IsaacMoses. I don't disagree with Daniel, either, that the fundamental principal underlying the question about one job (or many) could stand to be defined, but I think it needs something concrete to tie it to in order for the question to work. Or it needs a complete overhaul (which I'm not prepared to invest in).

comment Is it permitted that male person to have feminine job? And otherwise?
Ha! Oh, I see @IsaacMoses and I disagree. Maybe. I think it should focus on one job and ask if that's ok. My guess is that one job in particular sparked the question, so just ask about that.

comment Is it permitted that male person to have feminine job? And otherwise?
"How is a feminine job defined according to halacha?" You're the one defining it in your comment; if you believe something to be a feminine job, I think you have to use your own criteria here, and probably ask about a specific job.

comment Why was the law about Para Aduma given in Mara?
Your comment above ("They were only given certain mitvot in 'moro' Why was poro aduma chosen") gives more insight to your question than the question you posted does. I have no idea what your second and third sentences in the question are doing there. Your comment above about being late in the day is also confusing - is this yet another, separate, question? Also, grammar helps.

Not sure which post you're adding to. I recommend you just post your own stand-alone answer. You'll get an upvote or two for your contribution, even if it isn't thorough. Although you're kind of ignoring the fact that the other answers directly answer the question, while your information suggests a hint towards an implied answer, which is much less valuable to the asker.

I recommend some superficial improvements to this question, but overall I think it's a good one. +1. I haven't got time to edit, but marry up the title with the body, use upper case where appropriate, and remove the thank you. Welcome to Mi Yodeya!
