comment Why tovel new dishes?
Whence your claim that shopkeepers can tovel (a claim directly contradicted by the source in the question)? It's not klei seudah for them, but klei otzar. See too judaism.stackexchange.com/q/14213/759

comment What sort of options are available for pursuing a career in Torah?
Primarily opinion based? "How successful can he become"? "Is this step even practical if one has responsibilities and expenses that need to be taken care of?" How could we possibly answer that?

comment Sabbath vs. Lunar Sabbath
Hi Jerry. Why would you think the Sabbath is counted from the new moon? Do you have any verses in Tanakh that suggest this? If so, please edit them into your question so we can better address your concerns.

comment Does one have to chase birds away from a nest in a tree that's partially on his own property?
"prior to cutting the branches per town law" Do you want the kids or not?

comment Are there any instances of someone other than Eliyahu Hanavi who built a mizbeach after the beit hamikdash was built?
@BSteinhurst While such a policy may seem reasonable a priori, I've seen too many questions where answering hyper-literally wastes everyone's time by not answering the intended question. So in practice, you have to use good sincere judgement. (I have never met the OP though I'm sure (s)he's a fine individual.)

comment Are there any instances of someone other than Eliyahu Hanavi who built a mizbeach after the beit hamikdash was built?
@BSteinhurst Perhaps being hyperliteral here will pay off, but given the current form of the question I cannot fully blame answerers for citing other potentially useful classical examples. Tanakh is not in the title or the tags and no explanation for such an unusual choice is given. Sounds almost like the OP was just using the word to mean "old and authoritative". Besides, whether or not the current answer is anyone's fault, the current question is sufficiently poor to warrant requests for improvement. I mean, "Eliyahu" isn't even mentioned in the body of the question.

comment Before taking eggs from the hens, does the farmer have to chase the hens away?
Yes there are people who purposefully declare buildings ownerless and put birds in there to try and set up and artificial "wild". Go figure.

@Danno afaik the faq is site policy till you show me community consensus otherwise. (also i wouldn't be so quick to determine isaac's position from that comment.)

comment What is the Sephardi, Mizrahi and Teimoni equivalent of a nigun?
Do you have any reason to suspect those other communities would have a parallel concept if it isn't based in Jewish tradition?

comment What is the Sephardi, Mizrahi and Teimoni equivalent of a nigun?
"classically" "early Hassidim": Do you mean, like en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chassidei_Ashkenaz ?

comment Rebbe Akivah's background
@Danno The downvotes just say that a good question could be answered by link alone, not that there is no need to do and present your own research.
23h
comment Rebbe Akivah's background
@Danno That was Shokhet not Isaac. You are correct that one user said that, but the voting on your post doesn't indicate any agreement to that claim (rather just disagreement to the claim "[a] good question can not be answered with a link alone") and you thus have no reason to assume community support for it.

comment Is there a guideline to knowing when to consult a rabbi and when to use your own judgement?
I don't understand how these stories prove anything? You asked a rabbi about a secular question, and therefore everyone should?
