@sabbahillel Ah! Now that's what I was interested in hearing. If anyone (YEZ) can find more details on this machloket (eg. names of Achronim and citations in Shulchan Arukh) that would be most interesting.

See the list here for example. I'm not claiming this is universally held, but neither is the claim in your answer.

Hi Jon; welcome to Mi Yodeya! Comments around here are not a good place to store important material as they can be subject to deletion. You should always include as much sourcing and explanation as you can in the body of your post itself. Remember also that none of us know you that we should trust you, so backing up any claim you make with an outside source is a great way to make your information useful to others. You can check out our help center to learn more about how the site works. Looking forward to seeing you around!

This is not the only opinion out there. Some say pineapple, for instance, is Charif.

comment When exactly does Havdala in Maariv effect a permission to perform Melacha?
It could also be that you are seeing it differently being better versed in these halachot. That's why I encourage you to elaborate on what precisely you think "self-containment" is and why precisely you think it matters. The clearer you are, the better chance someone here will grasp your conundrum and provide a suitable answer.

Probably right after you say the phrase ותבדילנו ה אלוקינו בין קודש לחול. Why should that be worse than saying ברוך המבדיל?

This doesn't really answer the question "how can a rabbi's blessing have any effect?"
