Can I use the same George Forman (or similar style) grill for milchig/fleishig as long as I have different plates for each?

This is not a trick questions and I assume that the answer is yes (and no different than using milichig and flaishig pots on the same stovetop), but just confirming. Thanks.

Yes, assuming there is no liquid between the plates and the "body" of the grill (which there probably shouldn't be anyway for safety reasons) because  אין בליעה יוצא מכלי לכלי בלא רוטב

That would be the reason by a clean electric stovetop, but a gas (flame) stovetop is assumed to burn it immediately.

RMA is Machmir lichatchila but I don't think it would apply here since it really only touches on the edges. Is it clear that food or splattering and sizzling  fats etc remain only on the plates?

Thanks.

Can you explain the second part? Electric stovetops need to be dried between meat and milk? I've never had one so I don't know, but I'm staying at a hotel which likely has these glass stovetops.

While we're on the topic, to kasher an oven without self-cleaning, is it just a matter of leaving it unused for 24 hours and then running it on its highest setting for a while?

92.8
Although the Badei Hashulchan understands the chumrah l'chatchila to be due to a doubt about אין בליעה יוצא מכלי לכלי בלא רוטב, IINM, the consesus of most Poskim is like the implications of the Toras Chattas and the Shach in 118 that it's because of a chashash of spilling or spraying, and when that chashash doesn't apply it would be muttar. (that's why we allow double wrapping, because it's sealed)

However, looking at a model with removable plates, it seems that there are "shared spots" which could have splattering.
the hinge area and the clips area and down the sides.

It's a machlokes.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

There are a number of other sources understanding the RMA this way including TaZ 97:3 (see PMG) and others.

Many people leave it next to the garbage even though it will ultimately get thrown out as long as they don't put it in the garbage themselves.

Do it through a goy?  :D
IANAR, but there is no actual prohibition against throwing it out. It is a hidur/mitzva min hamivchar type of thing to use it for the mitzvah to burn the chametz.
You can throw it out in a respectful way, wrap itd nicely in a bag and put it in the garbage

a weeka nd a half ago on DDMS there was a Walmart + deal, sign up for Walmart + and get a 20$ coupon. this was the headline --- 

[$20 Coupons Being Sent Out For Free Trials!] Enroll In Walmart+ (Free With AMEX Platinum) And Get $20 Off $35 At Walmart!

i signed up believing that i was getting a free trial, and then i got charged. i messaged walmart and had them cancel Walmart + and refund me the 12.95, as i 100% believed I was signing up for a free trial....

the thing is i still have the 20$ off code, and i checked it still would work. is it ethical to use it?? especially bec here is the language on the email they sent me when I signed up....


Welcome

Now that your paid membership has started, use the promo code below to get $20 off your next order.



so obviously the code was for paying members only....is it ethical or halachicaly allowed for me to use it?

thanks
