comment Laining Tehillim
So it isn't Authentic Ashkenazus then but I would argue that if that's what's used by contemporary Ashkenazim to lein tehillim, it is now the Ashkenazic trop. I will edit to include that information

I was in Israel all of last year including Pesach but I'm almost certain that I've seen that on Israeli products imported to the US

comment Contradictory Hechsherim
In fact, i think the edah only specifies "for year round use" if someone else certified it for pesach but i'm not sure so i left it out of the answer.

comment Where to buy tefillin parts
Of course the caveat is that the best man to buy from is not always the best man to have check your STA"M because of "Hatorah chasa al memonam shel yisrael". Are you dead set on buying online?

comment Where to buy tefillin parts
I only know him via his reputation and blog. I would say he's a great source to buy from because he has a reputation for good work and he is very strict about hagaha

comment What is the difference between a kofer and apicorsis
@CharlesKoppelman I was taught both versions as well but I'm more inclined to think it was a general term for sectarians because of certain contexts in which it is used in the Talmud (v'ein comments makom l'harich)

comment Omitting the second half of bentching
Heh. I was asking your opinion more than anything. I plan on asking a more general question about praying for personal needs on shabbat after I look at the sugya.

Why only on shabbat? Was it to avoid praying for personal needs?
