Repent, or else...

It is definitely still useful for the English portions but not sure how much specifically from the premium features

It might alert you that the rest of the world has already transitioned to gevaldigeh :)

(I'm aware that in Lubavitch the authentic ק is still being used)

I find this to be much more comprehensive that the browser-based ones (but I didn't try Edge)

I'm not aware of the grammatical correctness or incorrectness of either, all I know is that my wife's grandfather was Zelig, and other families spell it Zelik, which drives me insane.

I believe the reason has to do with not having a posuk that starts with a ז and ends with a ג.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Nominating myself.

Worst run-on I've written in a long time but quite frankly I don't have the patience to rewrite it.

You'd think that enlarging the overall NP system would be helpful, but instead of giving world-class sites such as Deadhorse, Custer, and many others the NP recognition they deserve and lightening the load at other parks, they keep on adding garbage like Gateway Arch and every other hill in the east.

Your sentence has one thought:
"You'd think blah but instead of blah they keep on adding garbage..."
Overall looks fine to me.

Is it correct to use the comma in the following sentence?
I am not disagreeing, but it all depends on what the law is.

I'm no expert, but I'd say it is correct.
