From R’ A Lichtenstein: Thus, they have also said: “He who chops down his plants, even though he is not permitted etc?” Also, the entire discourse about he who tells another] “Tear my cloak, break my vessel or my hand or my leg” (BK 92a) deals only with the liability to pay or the lack of it. However, it is certainly prohibited and the permission of one’s fellow is of no avail with regard to this.

ME IIRC there’s a tshuva concerning jousting (Purim?) that holds one not liable for damages due to implied consent. Does this imply that the jousting is prohibited?

Kaddish drabanan after learning (assume some agadita too) – required, suggested, permitted or discouraged?
