comment Is chometz less of a problem before the 15th of nisson
I'm not going to argue with someone who clearly isn't reading or thinking. This answer is objectively wrong. See mine for details. Chag Sameach.

comment Free choice versus the Will of G-d
That wasn't the "we" I referred to. I was mostly pointing out an Arukh haShulchan that I thought you might be interested in where he says they dont have the custom to say the verse about David during Tachanun. I thought you specifically would be interested in a custom noted by the Arukh haShulchan.

comment Can a toaster be cleaned from chametz for Pesach?
How does this contradict other sources? This just discusses how to not own Chametz on Pesach, not how to Kasher a toaster, as the prior answer did.
