comment Nezikin for Annoyances?
@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?

comment Origin of Mareh Kohen tune
No idea where the tune came from, but I believe that it was written in the times of biet sheni.

@msh210 wouldn't that make them clafs? Note: in every tikun kroim that I have, these letters are normal.

@DoubleAA Many of them. There are other issues with the sefer torah (least I think they might be issues) for another post later.

@SethJ the owner. I would not take his word for it though, hence the quotes.

@SethJ I was told that this was a "kabbalistic" torah. Not sure what that means though.

comment Learning the shapes of the letters as a Baal Koreh
@CharlesKoppelman, this is not one of the halachot that I know as of now, but it is the type of mistake that I am talking about

@ba so this is borer and not meraked? or there is a similar exemption for meraked?

Would it make a difference if it was on yom tov or shabbat?

comment Learning the shapes of the letters as a Baal Koreh
@DoubleAA, right, didn't really know how to express that, hence the "try"

Mind reconciling this with the answer below?

comment Rice in a salt shaker
I understand what the words mean, but to clarify, if there is any klee that does any sort of borer that will immediately go on food this is not an issue, because it is considered part of the way that we eat?

@DoubleAA, for some reason I thought this was a classic case of something that was not allowed, looking in shimirat shabbat again now EDIT: can't seem to find volume two right now, sorry.

comment Pronunciation of Tere ta’ame
@msh210, the only thing like that in parshat shalach (that I am aware of) is a mercha kfula, and that is a single trup (as far as I am aware in the Ashkenazi and Syrian traditions) with a sound distinct to that of two merchas.
