comment Berachah LeVatalah (blessing in vain) retroactively
@ba Nesivos 234:3. I'm guessing not all agree, but it is a known and serious opinion.

comment If borchu of maariv is before plag hamincha and the amida after plag, is this “tartei desasrei” – two contradictory acts?
Do you have a source for your first paragraph (which is the only one that directly answers the question)?

comment Explaining lack of mixed dancing
This sounds like 2 questions, with the first being covered by judaism.stackexchange.com/q/18135/759 (and see linked questions to there). I recommend editing out the first question and sticking with the second.

revised Why don't we follow the Shulchan Aruch's nusach of the blessing on a rainbow?
clarified in title what part of the ShA we aren't following (because we do follow him in the sense that we say a really similar bracha).

@ba Not that God wouldn't accept it, just it might not be necessary.

@SethJ What's the problem? It's bracha levatala but not shem hashem levatala.

comment Berachah LeVatalah (blessing in vain) retroactively
@SethJ Bracha levatala is not shem hashem levatala for most rishonim. In a bracha levatala you say a praise of hashem "He created fruits! That makes Him awesome!" so it isn't shem hashem levatala.

@ba SethJ Teshuva for a shogeg/oneis on a derabanan? Also, that is classically the second worst possible nafka mina (the first being kiddushin al tenai X).

comment If you didn’t put on tefilin at shacharis, when should you?
How about both? Right now lest you forget, and during Mincha because it's better to daven with tefillin on, and now you have an excuse to during mincha (something the minhag is generally not to do otherwise).

comment Tehilim HaChida - in the order of the Aleph Bais
@Yirmeyahu Oh! Sorry I misunderstood your comment. I thought you were saying the book referenced in this answer was written by someone else. Never mind then. || What you suggested seems like an answer to the question, not a comment to here. In fact, it seems you agree with me that this answer doesn't help much.

comment Can we eat in a Sukkah standing?
@MonicaCellio It's not so simple as that, cf Mishna Sukka 2:7 which is one of the 6? places we rule like Beit Shammai.

comment Tehilim HaChida - in the order of the Aleph Bais
@Yirmeyahu Interesting, I did not understand that it was a different author. If someone can find a hebrewbooks link that should settle the matter.

comment Davening Maariv at Shekiya / or after Plag HaMincha - repeating Kriyas Shema
But the issue here isn't night but rather zman shechiva, and it's possible that bein hashemashot is vadai zman shechiva even if it isn't vadai night (or vice versa).
