@IsaacMoses I try to phrase it in as basic a way as possible. In this case, I knew the arguments for and against gloves, though I didn't know who held what. So I did gain some interesting knowledge from this.
Sometimes people edit questions but don't really know how to properly do so, shouldn't there be a way to "send a message" to the person either asking them to edit their question or at least asking exactly what they mean?
When you view your tags on your user page, each tag has a number to the left - that's the total number of votes for all the answers you've given in that tag. To the right is another number - that's the total number of questions and answers you've submitted for that tag. Why the inconsistency?
Strange. I just got two notifications from different people from comments on two different posts. I was not pinged in either of them, and it wasn't my post. I had commented on both posts earlier, though. Thats weird. Is SE changing the way notifications work?
Many songs we sing and the Shabbat table we use the word Hashem instead of Hashem's really name even though the song was written in rhyme or the tune clearly calls for the word Ado-ni as the clear word that rhymes. For example Tzur Mishelo.
Where does this custom come from and why?
Some people are very careful to say Hashem or Elokim when singing a song with one of G-d's names in it so as not to use His name in vain (related question), but I have also been told this is unnecessary since these songs are equivalent to prayer.
If you shouldn't pronounce them, why did the aut...
@msh210 is, rather, is asking (1) assuming one should replace the name, why was the song written with the name, and (2) assuming one shouldn't replace the name, can one repeat words. What do y'all think?

@ShmuelBrill Puts the question on your Favorites list, accessed through your account page, illuminates a pretty star on the question for all to see or increments the counter thereon, and contributes to the author earning twobadges. (As far as I know; there may be other effects.)
@ShmuelBrill Can you see other users' (e.g. my) Favorites lists?
@ShmuelBrill :) I actually just verified using Private Mode on my browser to be a non-user. I suppose I could create a test account, but I've never had sufficient reason to. I think anyone is entitled to create a sock puppet if they want, as long as they don't abuse it by, e.g., voting their own stuff up. (Which would probably be detected by the vote fraud detection algorithms.)
@HodofHod FWIW, I set up twitter.com/mi_yodeya a long time ago and set it to automatically tweet links to new questions. It has been a long time since I've logged into it myself to post a manual tweet, but I did from time to time in the past.
@HodofHod Dunno. I haven't paid much attention to it. It's got 8 followers, so I assume it doesn't have much influence.
@IsaacMoses Typing 'sru' in the 'spoken by' box at chat.stackexchange.com/search brings up suggestions, but not him, so if he's chatted on chat.se then it hasn't been under the name 'Sruly'. (Unless not everyone shows up as a suggestion?) I wouldn't know how to superping him, then. Is there a way?
