Thanks for your comment! I shall try to respond at greater length in a future post. On the Chafetz Chaim, see B. Brwon's article on Soft Stringency.. - in Contemporary Jewry. Accoridng to his understanding the Chafetz Chaim was not in fact much of a Machmir but he kept all options open leaving it to the individual to decided on which level he is.

I can't agree with your descripton of Chacham Ovadiah as representing normative Sephardi Psak, R' Yosef Zechariah Stern has the same methodology and he was Ashkenazi.


Now that it's too late, I'm asking permission. (Sorry, I goofed.)

I took the conversation from Ishim veShitos and here and posted it to Avodah. See the archives at http://www.aishdas.org/avodah/vol25/v25n334.shtml#10 .

See my review of R'HS shiur on hirhurim - he clearly falls in the yikov hadin category
