comment Why put Psalm 130 right before barchu?
What is the difference between "ancient" and newer minhagim in this regard? Neither is original and hence still no bracha problems.

comment Earliest Sources for Custom of Not Shaving from 17th of Tammuz
@mevaqesh You can only edit such that it doesn't invalidate existing upvoted answers, per meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/a/1231/759. It's ok to have a mistake in a question that is corrected by an answer. That's what Q&A and learning is all about.

comment Is it proper to supply a picture of a girl prior to dating?
@GershonGold Do either of them explain what the Tznius issue is? A prospective suitor should look at his prospective wife. What is the problem? I assume the women will be dressed appropriately in the pictures.

So they had none of the OP's concerns and just thought it's an ineffective technique? That is the only possible read of this answer which is on topic, as the concerns of efficacy are off topic here on MY. Please edit to clarify.

@Gershon Maybe you can explain what the Tzenius concern is instead of just saying the word "tzenius"? Or how this is considered treating someone improperly?

comment Is it proper to supply a picture of a girl prior to dating?
@IsaacMoses It may also be more Tzanua to not have to see the person for the whole hour of the meeting, but just see a picture for 2 minutes and talk on the phone (for example). Certainly if a prospect can be called off after 10 seconds of a picture, that saves everyone time, energy, money, and 59:50 of שיחה בטלה with a woman.

@IsaacMoses Focusing on the subject's appearance is not only permitted, but it is recommended. Tznius should not be an issue, as sam indicated.

comment Converts to be treated as if they were born Jewish
Perhaps you should clarify that this does not (and cannot) say what the OP sought, as converts do have some different rules and restrictions.

comment Why are there diferent sacrifice offerings for each day of Succot but the same for all days of Pesach?
This is a little exaggerated. The Korbanot of Sukkot follow a very clear pattern and are very very similar to each other.
