I’ve posted a number of comments over the years relating to the delicate dance between poskim and their communities. IMHO (for a long while), as microelectronics become more embedded in society, the result will be micro-halachic justified allowances where shabbat is not compromised (even as the definition of compromised changes with time. (data points- r moshe-timeclocks, refrigerators…)

Perhaps worthy of its own thread – R’ Moshe states that he became poseik hador because people kept coming back to him. If they hadn’t liked his answers, maybe not. Could be same for R’ Asher Weiss? So we get the poskim we like?

Please direct any informal comments to [email protected].
