@flatbread tortillas are not fried. They are baked on a dry heated surface.

comment Hugging a crying close friend of the opposite sex?
It sounded to me from your most recent edit that you were trying to claim that hugging is categorically considered a violation of the prohibition because it is somehow more associated with relations.

comment Hugging a crying close friend of the opposite sex?
YEZ Your last comment indicates that you agree such a hug is not actually a violation of the commandment, just that it's a bad idea lest you have bad thoughts while giving the hug.

comment What are “universal minimum” standards of tznius for halachic purposes?
Can you cite me any Rishon at all who indicates that there is any objective standard of Tzniut (aside from Makom HaErvah)? I agree they all cite their standards. Do any of them at all indicate that if the custom were to change, the Halacha wouldn't?

comment Hugging a crying close friend of the opposite sex?
Why it matters that relations often include hugging if this hug isn't the kind that precedes relations is not clear to me.

@sam It is not necessarily derech chiba.

@crashfocus You can and should include any motivation you have for asking in the question by editing. Welcome to Mi Yodeya! Looking forward to seeing you around.

comment Why is Darchei Moshe split into two versions: the short (Hakatzer) and the long (Ha'aruch)?
This is highly unlikely as there is Darkei Moshe Haaroch on Aveilut. Why would he finish it after starting his new plan?

comment What is the status of the psak of a Maharat?
@Daniel It might have to do with the learned-ness of those finishing the programs.

How do you know neither is preferred just because both are permitted?

comment Is is wrong to be racist?
@Nafkamina I don't see how it shows that. It shows that the Torah mandates hate of certain races independent of personalities (Amelekites) and certain personalities independent of race (heretics).

comment Too fast or no minyan?
@user3949142 Either way, I don't know why this is happening here as this doesn't have to do with the answer. If you would like to post a different answer, go ahead.

You could try. You may or may not succeed. That would not necessarily be sufficient.
