comment Is the prohibition of swimming during the nine-days because of danger or bathing for pleasure?
sam, I note your above comment distinguishing different types of bathing by danger level, so it seems even you agree that not all swimming is dangerous. Danger is something that would need to be evaluated case by case and wouldn't be the basis of a blanket prohibition.

I have to agree with @msh210. The question asked which of two categories a certain thing falls into. This currently only says both categories exist.

But now that we have lifeguards it isn't dangerous. If this is just an instance of the general minhag to avoid dangerous things, then swimming alone in the woods may be forbidden, but not at a local pool.

Isn't the question about putting tefillin on while the string is there?

@YDK You want to say that there is an area where chatzitza is not meakeiv in between two areas where it is meakeiv?

comment Red string on Tefillin arm?
I'm still not sure what red string your talking about, but if you could source your last statement that would increase the value of the question and perhaps make it easier to answer.

comment Red string on Tefillin arm?
Shmuel, welcome to the site and thank you for bringing your interesting questions! Can you clarify what you mean by the left arm being the place a red string should be (if I am parsing that correctly)?

Perhaps you should clarify that the question is dealing with a USA schedule (unless you want to broaden it).

comment Adding to Torah and connection to Hashem
Actually there is an intervening pasuk. Perhaps that affects the pshat.

@DanAndrews Alas, commentless downvoters exist on our site too. I, for one, did not downvote.

Dan Andrews, welcome to the site! I think this kind of question falls out of our scope. See this meta post for our discussion about comparative religion questions. Note also this similar question which was also closed as off topic.
