@DanF Knowing the borders tells you what's in and what's out for all places. Any answer to that answers this.

comment Should a Gabbai correct the Ba'al Kri'ah on “questionable” kri / ktiv anomalies?
No. A Sofer may have thought to self correct the text as he's writing.

I don't think that's what sevirin means. Can you cite any example of two communities who read a sevirin word differently?

"shul minhag" ??? What kind of shul has a minhag to change the Torah???

@Danno What's your point? Suppose these verses were related to the Torah reading that week, or to a holiday that was occurring then (they had many, cf. Megillat Taanit). (Ignoring the fact that of all the possible origins for the Haftarah that one is only first mentioned in the 13th century.)

comment Why aren't we Mahmir (stringent) with just Mikvah when ruling leniently on a technicality in Niddah cases?
@BabySeal b"H you're welcome; always glad to help. Any chance you or yEz know how I can get my hands on this pamphlet which apparently is somewhat popular? I find it interesting to compare what people are 'actually' being taught in different places.

comment Are there any communities in which the oleh still leins his own aliyah?
I saw this at a Yemenite Shul in Binyamina, Israel. That week was Parashat Vayishlach and the Meturgeman skipped the translation of Maaseh Reuven.

@Danno I fail to see such an opinion? We know for a fact that Haftara section choices have been very very fluid over the centuries (some communities would even switch out the "regular" haftara for unrelated special occasions, like Sheva Brachot!), and there's no reason to think it wasn't like that back then too.
