comment What is a good way to make one's website inaccessible on Shabbat?
I'm not sure what you mean by warning. It would make sense to have a short friendly message that says something about Shabbat, but what is the point of going thru the effort to make this message and then just let them continue onto the site anyway. We should be responsible for our fellow Jews and not just say "it's their problem". If I really thought that people would be likely to read the message about Shabbat and then continue on to the site, surely it would be better to not have the message at all.

By the way, perhaps the title of the question linked to by Shalom should be made more descriptive, since I searched for a question like this before posting and didn't find this.

I wasn't really asking about whether or not this precaution is required, since clearly there are many different types of websites for which the answer may be different. But for what it's worth, I have in mind a private website where my family members can collaborate on compiling genealogical data. Since most of my family is Jewish, and many are not Sabbath observant, this seems like it might be a reasonable precaution to take. And the chance that people may be incorrectly blocked is not the greatest concern, altough I would certainly prefer to avoid it.

comment Why doesn't the OU put DE on food packages anymore?
According to the last paragraph of oukosher.org/index.php/common/article/…, if you contact the OU about a specific OU-D product, they will tell you whether or not it actually contains any dairy ingredients. I tried this and they confirmed that original flavor Oreo cookies have no dairy and are only "dairy equipment". This applies to other shapes (e.g. double-stuffed) but they said they could not comment on other Oreo flavors. But don't just take my word for it; call them yourself!
