There's often room for leniency if it's dangerous for one to fast.

Yes. I think at a point, its your faith that matters more than attempting to fast when you can't

I agree with Ineva. We’re not falling for your bait :p
Rosie O’Donnell is Fat!
“She went to my wedding. She had lots and lots of cake, and I'll tell you what, she is a terrible human being.”

BREAKING NEWS:
Supreme Holy Emperor Donald Jesus Trump's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many.

A freilichen Purim! For those unacquainted with the Purim story, I recommend this. It combines midrashim, gemara, and meforshim into a comedic, yet informative, story of Purim. Though designed for kids, adults may find humor in it too. The video cuts it off a bit at the end, but the bulk is still contained in the video.

Well, if serious health problems would result, one would not need to. A halachic authority should be consulted.

Philistea, *** warned for trolling ***.

Three points of explanation on this warning:

1) We absolutely do not ban people wanting to express support for Palestine or Palestinians in NSG, and we have an established thread for discussion of the current conflict in Gaza where people are free to express that support within site rules. Typing 'FREE PALESTINE' in the latter thread wouldn't even raise an eyebrow.

2) Criticism of religions and religious traditions is not banned in the main NSG religion discussion threads, whether the Jewish, Christian, or Muslim discussion threads, so long as it's within the site rules.

3) However, going into this specific religion discussion thread and, without any additional context, making a slightly snide remark over the thread poll and then posting an all-caps political slogan without leaving any room for discussion and debate is unnecessarily inflammatory - and also ignores that thread participants likely hold a range of opinions over the political issue in question.

I've also taken into account that Philistea received a separate warning for flaming in the Israel-Hamas thread on the same day as he made the post I'm warning him for here. This made me less inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt over the present post.

I believe the first place you quoted may have been a mistake, because I could not find the term there.
As for the other places, he is speaking in His name, not his own. The last example becomes particularly messy if interpreted as speaking for himself.
