comment Is Torah meant to be kept forever?
I don't know, seems more ambiguous to me than that. Yes, in theory it could change, statements are in the Torah that says that it won't are themselves subject to retraction, so it is circular to argue that it can't change (that is his argument as I understand it).

Do you have the exact cite for Sefer Haikarim? My understanding is that he agrees that in actuality it won't change, he just disputes the idea that the unchanging is inherent to what Torah and Judaism are.

@MonicaCellio, Done, but seems well supported already. Can any old person do that Javascript trick, or only a mod? There have been times I wanted to do it ...

Are you sure about that? Compare with Avos HaTuma 5:5.

comment Wrong price knowingly at checkout
@code613, if the money loss is on your end, it is for you to forgive. No big deal. If the money loss is on their end, then in this case it doesn't sound like you have to go back and return it as you aren't even clear if there was an error. But ask a Rabbi, don't rely on what is said here.

comment Use induction on Yom Tov
@Shalom, some of them e.g. seem to turn themselves off after a short time (~3 hours), so it could be you could leverage that in some way for the night meal. I'm sure the sources in the answer are speaking about remove and placing the pot, not just leaving it there. But that would also have to address accidentally moving it out of place just while taking food in or out.

comment Can a Beis Din deny conversion if a person cannot physically perform a mitzvah?
It seems a bit interesting to claim this list is exhaustive. It doesn't discuss, for example, if the person cannot do a bris for medical reasons, and it would be a surprising assertion to say it isn't on this list so its fine.

comment What happened to the mitzvah to love the stranger as yourself?
@Aaron, I'm not expert in their commentary to say, but commentaries on Chumash generally are not (e.g. Rashi, Ramban, etc. all raise non-Halachic interpretations which do not conform to their own Halachic rulings), so I'm not assuming that they are.
