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.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

All i was pointing out is that you obviously read through the comments, if you happened to come across that piece from that rabbi.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

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.

They were going on and off more times about the kosher switch as the actual switch did.  :)

I can take that to mean Jews say one thing but do another that does not follow the laws/rules of Judaism. Care to clarify for me?  :P

Individual Jews may not follow the rules. That does not mean Judaism is flawed. That means individuals may be flawed but they do not speak for the entirety of judaism.

Based on that thread history, I'd wager I understood it correctly.

Maybe you need to get to different poskim. Being very involved in psak halacha in Lakewood I find that YMMV depending on whom you ask.
