comment Where are these mysterious OU documents?
So it could work for any position, just they choose to limit it to Halachic motivations? Or are you just making up what they do and do not include in those documents?

comment Where are these mysterious OU documents?
Why can't it work for policies based on fiscal concerns? Is it not just a catalog of positions?

@Loewian If you have further questions about the tagging policy, you should ask on meta.

comment Is a minyan required for Sheva Brachot?
@DanF Ah. Sad that the traditional practice has become so neglected so as to be nearly forgotten. Woe unto us.

@loe I encourage you to stop tagging thing list as the tag is highly likely to be deleted in the next day or so, per meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/q/3889/759 unless someone posts a convincing answer there supporitng the tag.

comment Evolved minimal Hebrew pronunciation in halacha
That seems silly, as while Ashkenazim pronounce both ב and ו as /v/ and ו is pronounced by some as /w/, that doesn't mean Ashkenazim pronounce /w/ as /v/. They pronounce ו as /v/. I don't see how you can apply a transitive sort of property here.

So even though no community pronounces ו as /b/, he would?

comment According to Halacha are you permitted to melt cheese on Shabbos?
I guess I don't know what you mean by "cooking per se" that isn't heating the item to change it

I guess I don't know what you mean by indirect. You mean like it's a Shinui?

comment Why Pesucha between Lo Sisa and Zachor Es HaShabbos?
Perhaps through Lo Sisa (2 Parshiyot) was said by God, and from Zachor on (8 Parshiyot) was said by Moshe, in accordance with the Midrash that the first 2 of the 10 were said by God directly.

I'm not sure I follow 1. In what way is this indirect cooking? You are directly applying heat to an uncooked (ignoring 3 for the moment) item. What is indirect?

I don't understand what you mean by 2. In what way are you not really cooking it? How hot is the Blech?

comment Being Motzi someone with Tefilas Haderech
Not all tefillot need a Minyan (ie not all tefillot are like the ordinary Shemone Esrei). I don't know how he knows what kind of requirements this one has. Musaf on Rosh HaShana for example I can be Yotzei from the Chazan even without any exceptional circumstances.
