@TRiG "I bet they were getting inundated with "advice" questions and finally put this disclaimer up there with helpful links." Nope.

Shog9To the extent that these disclaimers have any value, I believe it is to the folks writing for these sites - answering questions - more than those reading.

I guess I'm a bit amazed at the incredible amount of rules Jews have to follow

@LCIII While for any given rule we may know and/or theorize about all/some/none of its reasons and know and/or theorize about all/some/none of its rewards, in the end of the day we're supposed to follow them because we believe that's what God wants us to do.
