I've flown TLV-NYC dozens of times in the past few years. Never once was there a ruckus. Unless you consider politely asking the FA to switch your seat. In that case the non-religious will often make a ruckus as well

Unless you consider making a minyan a ruckus. I agree, but that's a completely different issue. That requires more education into the fact that the majority of poskim hold you may not daven with a minyan on the plane if it will interfere with the passengers/crew

Please say more. What do you have issue with? Maybe a can add a different perspective.  ;)
You read the comments...
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

To make an educated decision which rabbi to choose, were you to have a rabbi. No?

Not sure comments will help with that. What the Rabbi says is the deciding factor. The Rabbi I quoted seems like a common sense person. It has nothing to do with I agree with him or not.

All i was pointing out is that you obviously read through the comments, if you happened to come across that piece from that rabbi.

I guess you missed this ::)
Of course I read some of the comments like I normally do. Comments on an article like are guaranteed to be one PC thread.

Most of these guys were born after this rabbi died and have no clue what a holy yet practical person he was. There has not been anyone who has come close to replacing him. Every ruling you get today is hedged with a more stringent viewpoint. He ruled clearly and firmly, without hedging. A real shame we dont have someone lile him around today with rhe guts to issue rulings and stand behind them. All we get today are soundbites issued "in the name of" so and so. Nothing firm and nothing that can be challenged and tested.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Well said. Like they say there's no "Kuntz" in being able to be stringent.

Of course. The comments just happened to be where that piece was linked to. I was just pointing out that you've evidently read the post and discussion. I'm not sure what you want added on DDF.

My friend wanted to write a sefer on all the kulos the we rely on regularly and that we should be able to rely on. L'tzad hakula. Its very easy to be machmir. R' Moshe was able to rule without worrying about "what if". Breiteh pleitzas (Broad shoulders) are whats missing.

Didnt we have a discussion about your hedging activities?  ;D

Today's ruling authority may as well work in IHOP as they waffle just as much.
