comment Is marriage without ketubah considered marriage, concubinage, or kiddushin she’einah re’uyah le’biah (marriage that cannot be consummated)?
"it would be kiddushin she’einah re’uyah le’biah" Really? So Rava would Pasul the Kiddushin MiDeoraita??

comment Witnesses and the Ketubah
@DanF The Ketubah is not a marriage. It doesn't make you married. It's just there to assure the wife that she gets her rights (even though she would get them all without the document too).

More likely: you should say Hamaavir.

comment Is Exercise on Shabbos Allowed?
@yydl "People who ask questions they don't know an answer to are naturally motivated to put as much detail and motivation as possible into the question, to help others give answers that are as helpful as possible. People who already know an answer, by contrast, are much more likely to post just enough of a question to serve as a set-up, in their own heads, to the answer they know." I wouldn't want to make any upvoted answers obsolete, of course, but if you can come up with any subtle ways of improving the question, they'll always be appreciated :)

Why do you think this may be prohibited that you ask? Please edit in your motivation to improve this post.

comment Is Exercise on Shabbos Allowed?
Can you indicate why you might think it would be permitted or prohibited, or why you thought to ask this? What avenues of research have you attempted already? What did you find?

comment Is scaring someone allowed?
@yEz I didn't say it's a bad question nor do I have any reason to sabotage (?) it. I think you didn't write a good question post for Mi Yodeya. Fact. I and Isaac are asking you politely to improve it. Please do so. I don't know why you think it matters how many votes a given post has; if there is room for improvement, it should be seized upon.

@yEz I'm not picking on you. Indeed, there are many posts on this site which could be improved. Maybe someday I and others will manage to tackle all of them. FWIW I have not upvoted any of those questions, which are all pretty weak. You'll note as well that unlike here my request for clarification from the OP was not answered in those cases.

@yEz Did I not accurately represent your motivation as you presented it? Isaac and I are asking you (just like any other user on any other post) to please add in your motivation for asking. Your rollback hurt the quality of this post and may reasonably be subject to a rollback itself.

comment Is there any support for the claim that tekhelet and argaman could be derived from the same creature?
I don't think ancient non-Jewish sources are on topic to ask for or to answer. What do others think?

comment Vegan tekheileth
Note that Chazal never complain about another animal source of Tekhelet, only a plant one. It seems that either they knew of no other one or that all animal sources are Kosher.

@helloworld It may be 'enough' for some benefit but it's very far from ideal.

comment Pursuing pluralist purpura
This seems unlikely. Rambam seems to be aiming for white in the core and blue on the outside of the winding. Tos, Raavad etc. are all counting whole strings and it's very unclear what they would think of a half died string, if they even considered the possibility (it's quite bizarre a priori).

comment Saying the Ribono Shel Olom after counting the Omer
Isn't the bracha not said because there is a doubt if one is obligated or not?
