comment Why do we sing Chad Gadya and Echad Mi Yodea at the seder?
I don't have other songs in mind; presumably if there were a need somebody would have written some. I did note in the question that some of the songs we sing seem to make sense in context (e.g. I didn't ask "why 'Adir Hu'"), which is why these two stood out for me -- given that the other songs are "on theme", what is it about these two that I'm missing? Thanks for the interesting analysis!

comment Where to post bugs found in Torah?
There are no deleted comments on this post, so I don't know what you're referring to. Moderators don't remove comments because of poor grammar, but may for other reasons (like being too tangential, or rude). Anyway, the purpose of comments is to improve the post, so please edit the question to add the information that was requested; don't just leave it in comments where it's harder to find.

But wouldn't that be an argument for saying it first? I mean, once ha-satan hears kiddush he'll know he's in the right place, right?

comment How can I find an agency for copywriting/script writing (for advertising) in the UK?
Hi bels and welcome to Writers. I've edited your question to make it fit better with Stack Exchange norms. Questions asking for lists or recommendations don't work well; they're pretty subjective and it's hard to evaluate the answers. But your core problem seems to be "how do I find them?", so I've changed your question to ask that. (It's possible that, if there are clear frontrunners in this area, some specific suggestions will come up in answers.) Thanks for understanding, and please feel free to [edit] further if I've misunderstood you.

revised How can I find an agency for copywriting/script writing (for advertising) in the UK?
changed from "who are they" (which would be a list/recommendation question) to "how do I find" (which may produce recommendations in answers, but the focus is on the method)

comment Is my story so far any good?
Hi deep and welcome to Writers. As Ice-9 suggested, this question is off-topic as it's currently asked, so I'll be putting it on hold, but critique questions are welcome if they follow our guidelines, so if you [edit] to include an excerpt and ask specific questions, we can reopen and try to help you out. Thanks for understanding.

comment Are the works of Maimonides treated as divinely inspired?
We trust what he says in Mishneh Torah; do we hold Moreh Nevuchim at the same level? I thought I'd heard that that one was more controversial. (It also, being a philosophic work, isn't a source of halacha, and maybe that distinction is important.)

comment Buying kitniyot during Pesach
I don't know the answer to the halacha question, but I wonder if you could skirt the immediate issue by borrowing from (Sephardic, Jewish) neighbors? Do you have any (and do they have enough to lend)? Any chameitz in their already-owned kitniyot would have been nullified, unlike any you buy from a store.

comment "If God had not delivered us from Egypt we would still be slaves"? Really?
The comparison to US slavery came up at my seder this year. I wonder if a key difference is the purpose of the freedom -- "let my people go" is not the end of the sentence; it's "...so that they can serve Me". We were freed from Egyptian bondage for a purpose. Freed slaves in the US, on the other hand, were basically (as I understand it) just cut loose to find their own way. It's no wonder they were so easy to oppress with the laws and ill treatment that followed; they had no one to protect and guide them.

comment Machsor Tom. I - Prayer book?
Hi and welcome to Mi Yodeya. Is there a table of contents? (Hebrew's fine.) If so, if you could scan that and the title page and add them to your post, it might help us identify which holy day this is for.

comment Do acknowledgements have to come after the table of contents?
If you're doing e-books, one factor to consider is what makes it "above the fold" in the preview. Unless you're being really verbose it probably doesn't make a difference here, but it's something I would want to check.

comment Is it considered ethical to accept payment from a business for reviewing a product or service?
@JohnFeminella could you add what you said here (about common-used standards) to your question? This is an interesting question but does skirt close to the opinion-based close reason -- but I think that change would make a big difference. Thanks.
