comment May a person order food from a vegan restaurant
@DavidFeigen A whole bug is a "creature" and as such cannot be botul. See star-k.org/kashrus/kk-ABISSELBITUL.htm Berya – A complete creature (e.g. an insect), whether dead or alive, is never batel.22

comment Does anyone say not to make noise for Haman?
Maaseh Rav. In our shul at Shacharis, the Rav said that since the noisemaking was lemhadrin min hamehadrin min hamehadrin min hamehadrin in the night, we should only bang for the first and last mentions of Hxoxmxoxn's name.

comment Rav Moshe Feinstein and tzitzis tucked in
Interesting. See judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/1797/… and the accepted answer. Note the words, "Mishnah Berurah (8:26) goes further, and sharply condemns those who wear their tzitzis tucked into their pants." I find it surprising that Rabbi M Feinstein ztz"l contradicted the Chofetz Chayim.

comment Why Hashem send prophet to Niniveh to warn them against robbery instead of idolatry?
I like your question. I hope you will excuse that I have edited out the use of the phrase "old testament" and the word J*****h. The Tanach is the testament for users of this site (who base their lives on Judaism) and the word Hashem which means "the name" is what we use instead of the J word. Now to try to think of an answer.

comment Why have there been no Hashgachas on DVDs, books, CDs, etc.?
Originally only some foods had hashgocho. As we became more and more "frum" more and more foods got supervised. Once, there was no supervised lemonade. Now there is. So IMHO, it's just a matter of time before media other than seforim get a hechsher.

ka.org.au/index.php/Contact_Us Is the contact page for Kashrut Authority of Australia. There are email addresses. Why not ask them?
