comment Does it make logical sense to “not hold by OU kashrus”?
@MosheY And chodosh holders will eat OU foods that don't have grain. I chose bread and butter for a reason.

+1 I don't see how it could be a vow.

@MosheY I do not worry about Cholov Stam in the US so I may be mistaken but I was under the impression that OU-D is not Cholov Yisrael.

It depends on what. I wouldn't expect someone who holds of Chodosh or Chalav Yisrael to eat OU bread and butter.

IAE Is there any concern in your case that isn't covered (groan) in the linked question?

Exactly, hirhur is different. But who said erva is?

comment Red string on Tefillin arm?
@msh210 I suppose you wouldn't approve of my generalizing that one in order to close this one. But isn't that the most organized overall outcome?

comment Is the prohibition of swimming during the nine-days because of danger or bathing for pleasure?
@sam I think it still can be an answer, but you would need to clarify in your post how and what kinds of bathing fit into each prohibition. As it is now you don't discuss swimming in this answer at all.

Won't, like they refuse? Interesting, I was not aware of that.

comment Connecting Shas and Halacha
@SethJ Blast for what? I don't think you said anything controversial. But I still don't think the Tur is the work I'd recommend first if someone is hunting upwards in a sugya; he's just not as thorough.

comment Connecting Shas and Halacha
@SethJ I see your issue, but I think given the answers that are already here that the question should just be generalized.

comment Connecting Shas and Halacha
@SethJ It's hard to find something in the BY without checking out the Tur :) But seriously, I don't think the Tur really fits the bill. He doesn't have nearly the same depth or breadth that the BY does.

@msh210 Does every possible object that could come in between tefillin straps and one's arm deserve its own question?

comment Will Tisha B'Av be pushed off in the future?
@PM The first tisha bav celebrated as a holiday by the sabbateans was 1666 on a Tuesday. Celebrations continued for the next few years, slowly converting (groan) back to mourning. Tisha bav was a nidche in the years 1667 1670 and 1673 so it's possible if not likely that at least some celebrators were still around those years.

Then what is the point of the second sentence? He's asking about wearing it permanently.
