@IsaacMoses Having an answer doesn't mean it is a riddle, if the question is posed appropriately.

comment שונא מתנות by Mishloach Manos
@HachamGabriel You mean that the Pasuk שונא מתנות יחיה (Mishlei 15:27) means to avoid receiving gifts? Try Megillah 28, Kiddush 59, BB 13 and others

comment What differentiates the Artscroll Talmud compared to other translations?
@yoel Even if it is just the assumption, it's disingenuous. There's only so much you need to do to cover up to be tzanua in this matter. Which leads me to a second point: there's a big difference between avoiding things for tzeniut reasons or ideological/hashkafic reasons.

@yoel Were you told to do that only after you and your spouse decided on a name, or did even the planning/suggestion stages have to happen on paper?

comment What differentiates the Artscroll Talmud compared to other translations?
@yoel What ideology doesn't hold of that? Are we pretending the other opinions don't exist? The many sides to every machloket is part of the beauty of gemara. (This is not a comment on any specific Artscroll or any other publication.)

Note that Achashverosh is always המלך אחשורוש and Esther is always אסתר המלכה.
