comment Why were there no Jewish philosophy tracts until the Rasag?
@shimonbm I don't care what language he wrote in; I care what traditional texts he interacted with.

"Status of kedusha" regarding standing in place and "status of kedusha" regarding required responses are not necessarily parallel

comment When is kedusha “over”?
The first answer there says the goal is to perform Shomea' ke'oneh. At which points of Kedusha would you want to be fulfilling that? I'm guessing any time you would have said something had you not been in your silent 'Amida.

comment Why is the Shulchan Aruch definitive?
and what's the next line? iirc he then says "and anyway it would take waaay too long so lets just make up some rules". even if you want to say the first reason is "ikar", it is not a reason which is agreed to explicitly by the maharshal nor the rama (though you might want to say he agrees implicitly, but i'm not sure) nor the gra. if it ever was "accepted" as a "rule", then it was done so by default because at some point every reasonable alternative in the Talmud has been explicated by someone. as recently as rav moshe feinstein do we see rabbis making bold original statements lehalacha.

comment Eicha - why are the Pesukim with the פ before the Pesukim with the ע?
Worth noting that 'ayin in Ktav Ivri looks the same as samech in Ktav Ashuri. Perhaps the alphabet switch led to confusion about the numbering system? /pure-speculation
