comment Which way to face when davening at the Kotel
"proclaimed assur by all great rabbonim of the previous generation" It's hard for me to think of a case where someone said that phrase without exaggerating.

What's wrong with a bizayon to the kosel? And shouldn't that at least be better than a bizayon to the mikdash?

comment Making early shabbos and tefillin
You may also want to indicate why one would want to don the tefillin, and why you think doing so may be problematic.

comment Is having a Bat Mitzvah girl recite a section from Ketuvim in a shul a problem of Kol Isha?
I don't understand either of the above comments. The vast majority of Rishonim do not mention Kol Isha as a concern for women reading Megilla/Torah to men. I'm not sure where Kevod HaTzibbur is coming from as there is no obligation here.

Why of course? Maybe it's because of Chumra dePischa? Maybe they don't even have any basis?

comment Refuting claims that everything before Shmuel was made up?
How is that argument circular? Given the existence of a certain object, I conclude it's authenticity. (Concluding its existence would be circular. The existence of a text and the authenticity of a text are not necessarily logically equivalent.) It's no different then saying "If there were an object with a specific marking, it must be an original such object because no one could forge such a marking".
