Subject:  "fake-arai"?
Message:  Dear Rabbis Abadi,

Rabbi Dr. Norman Lamm delivered a hesped in memory of Rabbi Dr. Joseph B. Soloveitchik zt"l. He recounted that a man who had attended a shiur given by the Rav asked, "But, Rabbi Solovetichik, what is your source?" He answered, "A clear and logical mind."

It seems to me that the hallmark of this website is that the answers come from clear and logical minds, and that should be apparent to any of the questioners. It is my understanding that you have had sufficient training and possess the necessary intelligence to decide matters not only by citing sources but on your own.

Reply:  You make a good point. But most of our source requestors are people who clearly cannot look it up on their own. Why should I bother giving them an address so that they can use that info to criticize.
