comment Why are some bakashot made on Shabbat?
@CharlesKoppelman, there might be, but I have not heard of them. I imagine that is different, as it is based off of a d'oritah I believe (but am not sure, and I don't think that the bakashot are part of the mitzvah per se in any case)

comment Why are some bakashot made on Shabbat?
I know of some shuls that don't do many of these things for exactly this reason. (I think benching after al y'chasrenu can also be included in this catagory)

comment Learning the shapes of the letters as a Baal Koreh
@DoubleAA I think there are quite a few times where something could be asur, but it is not asur until someone says so. I think there was a famous case where someone came to the chafetz chaim with a clearly traif chicken, and he said it was fine, there is a machlocet about how a chazakah works in this respect, rosh chodesh works this way, etc. All these things have a basic "reality" to them (it is the new moon or its not, it is one person's property or is not, the chicken is good, or its not) but its not halachicly so until its pronounced.

comment 10th man drove to shul on shabbat
@CharlesKoppelman I mean lets say the shul is there already. On a certain shabbat you know you will not have a minyan of walkers. How can you justify, for that shabbat only, having minyan?

@DovF, in most of those cases, both parties are equally liable at the same time.

comment 10th man drove to shul on shabbat
@CharlesKoppelman I go by rov for what? If you mean that I go by rov with regard to the number of times, I would argue that it is not relevant. On a particular, known shabbat, it is a fact that there is no way that there will be ten shomer shabbat people that can get there. Why should there be minyan that shabbat then?
